I had a total knee replacement 12 weeks ago and all is good. In your case perhaps consider: - lots of stationary bike cycling but build up slowly - walk a little every day building up to 3 mlles - sleep with a pillow between your knees
Yes, I can not kneel and still have trouble with stairs. This will improve in about 12 months. Yes, I have a major secondary condition as well which existed before the operation.
I did 45 hours of physio over three weeks and this has been a major success factor. You just can't get away with a few minutes each day in exercise. Hope this helps.View Thread
