    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    Lol! I beat you all.... 1990 - cartilage out and soft tissue/ligament total reconstruction. However, I was told I would need a new knee within 16 years of that happening...and for 29.5 out of old knee after that! :egypdance:

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    Funny story - my husband (12 years older than me) had Right Knee Arthroscopic surgery to repair/remove some of his meniscus this past Thursday. I was the designated driver and responsible adult to care for him over the past few days. Well, let me tell ya, he got home, felt great, has been...

    [TKR] Steelergal's Recovery Thread^

    Hi @Steelergal! You know me - I wonder all those same things that you mentioned in your post. I have pondered going to see my OS a couple days ago, but am waiting it out until I see him on Oct 16th (that is unless it gets ways worse). If you stay worried, it might make you feel better if you...

    - @luvcats - that is hilarious....and I wonder the same thing!!! @Steelergal - Please don't take this the wrong way, but I continue to be amazed/encouraged that we are experiencing similar recoveries... one day apart and similar in age with similar circumstances prior to surgery.... you (and...

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    WARNING - "Venting ahead".... Well, I am in my 10th Week. I returned to PT on Wednesday (after 2.5 weeks not being at PT due to travel). I requested to go to my original therapist as my last therapist put me in terrible pain the week before I travelled. My ROM got worse over the past couple...

    Wow! I am SO amazed and SO happy for you! Ms. Knee sure is a trooper and apparently led all of your leg muscles to get to working! I am very inspired by you! Glad you had safe travels and that you enjoyed the trip! Have fun in NYC.... I have taken the Acela/Amtrak many times from DC to NYC...

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    @Poctdb - Hey! Yes, finally made it home. Thank you for asking :) I got home on Friday and have been a couch potato ever since with a few minutes here and there on the Spin Bike (and even followed @Roy Gardiner suggestion on lowering the seat, etc). My knee was so swollen while I was...

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    Hi @Poctdb - Yes, I was able to put my leg up a bit this afternoon, but was in a big theater for the morning briefings.... uhhh. Will be doing some of the same the next two days :sad:

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    @Jockette - Thanks for the info. I know it sounds like a lot, but I really do have a sedentary job most of the day/year. We are sitting most of the day during this conference, so sometimes I feel that I am not moving enough which may be causing some issues as well. I like your idea about the...

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    @Steelergal - so happy to see that you are having a great trip! It sounds like you may have had a breakthrough with this whole no knee pain, etc, thing! So happy for you! I am starting to get where the knee doesn't hurt, but the swelling around my knee is still somewhat unmanageable (twice the...

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    Hey everyone! I made the trip - two flights and a night of Oktoberfest. Getting ready to go to a meeting now after finishing icing. My knee swelled a lot over the past day or so from all of this activity, but I am sure it is to be expected. It is interesting, though, that I still a have so...

    [TKR] FitGal’s Recovery

    So Week 7 has been pretty decent. I am still frustrated that I can't workout at the gym to the point of actually sweating (which it doesn't take much for me to break out in a full sweat). So, I am still taking it slow. The knee had a serious case of schizophrenia each day this week, with...
