What does this involve?I repeated his suggested routine today, twice.
At this very early stage of recovery, 30 minutes on any machine is too long. That strange knee feeling is telling you that. Cut back the machine time to at least half of what you're doing.Just one symptom had cropped up and is worrisome. When I first started to walk, both times after my therapy, and following 30 min. on the knee machine, I had the strangest sensation in my knee replacement like it was swishy, fluid moving around on the outside of my knee.
It may feel good, but once a day is plenty for exercises.I repeated his suggested routine today, twice. Once again I was pleased with the results.
This is amazing for onlly 3 weeks out! Just be sure to not overdo or your knee will yell at you.It’s a beautiful day today and I took a very short walk outside. Wow! The old pain is gone, replaced by a stiff knee And a returned-almost-to-normal walking gait. I think this is going to work.
Sleep anytime and anywhere you can. I found myself napping morning and afternoon for the first month or so. Our bodies heal more while we're sleeping.Last night I slept for three hours and then woke at 3:30, unable to go back to sleep.
So true. Looking at the good instead of the bad helps tremendously.Attitude makes all the difference, as I have to remind myself.
Accept it. Everybody complains about it, I know I did. But there's nothing you can do about it, so you might as well accept it and do the best you can.Would love to know how some of the rest of you keep your spirits up in regard to this annoying sleep issue?
