At a month out I wasn't thinking much of anything. Such baby steps at that point. It is a marathon not a sprint that is what I learned. Hope and faith will keep you going.So great to read of your progress... I'm only a month out from my original TKR and 2 weeks out from a 2nd surgery to remove a Hematoma and he also did an MUA while I was under to give me a 'fresh start,' he said since I'd been locked down for two weeks with the Hematoma. A week ago I only measured 45 degrees and since then I've been doing some gentle bends and lots of walking around the house and stretching. Sometimes I stand too much in the kitchen and it swells.. but reading your thread, along with many others on this forum, has truly given me hope that the best is yet to come and not to worry. So thank you. I can't wait until I can hike again!
For your biking, what did you find is best? Lower resistance, or more? And how long, how frequent?I found biking worked great to keep my knee loose (ROM) and slowly building a walking regimen has worked a miracle with pain when standing or walking.
