Hello everyone 

Well this is me 15wks post op 

Returned to work as an HGV driver and it couldn't of went better 

back behind the wheel no probs ... Straight back onto distance work after a couple of days on local runs , only to see how my knee would react ,, a little swelling but nothing to drastic .. My  knee bend and strength improving everyday even doing the night out 

Obviously I know set backs can occur but hopefully not 

I found the extra bits like climbing in and out of the cab has helped can only call it regular exercise 

Well that's my update Good Luck everyone .......John

    Good on you and best of luck, John, things can only get better. Just remember, CLIMB in and out of the cab DON'T jump and if you're pulling curtains brace yourself well, if windy. I put my OP on hold till I retired as over the last few years I was shunting trailers local. Didn't think it would have gone well going back to the number of trailers I was shifting. Then tipping and loading every day. The last year was painful, with a couple of unscheduled E&A visits for injury to the knee. Managed to hang on till pension started then hung up the keys.
