Please bear in mind that they are not ALL for the first week! :th_heehee:
But, Jo, I had it all worked out! Got the gallon pail, the five-gallon bucket, stationary biccle, futebol, Thera ands, etc. I'm ready!
I have a question regarding Total Knee Replacement and Rehabilitation: The Knee Owner's Manual by Daniel J. Brugioni, M.D. - I want to get the book and I usually read on my reader, but I am wondering is this a book that you might want to flip back and forth a lot in to reference other parts of the book as you read? I find that isn't as easy in a ebook. And is this a book that a caregiver would reference? I think I would have a better chance of my hubby picking up a paper book than an ebook. But the price is so much better for the ebook. Geez, I can't even make a decision about this now!! :DOH:
I would say you would be better off with the hard copy book. That way you could use it as a reference tool more easily and point out specific sections that you mark for hubby to read.
That is what I was thinking too. Thanks Jamie!
I bought it as an e-book and put it on both mine and my husband's Kindle. It has a handy electronic table of contents that allows for referencing exercises or time frames fairly handily. I am only on day four and have found it to be an invaluable preparation! No real surprises so far, which is just how I like it!
Seen no responses on my post <<<<<about Here's another excellent book: "Knee Surgery, The Essential Guide to Total Knee Recovery" Daniel Fulham O'Neill.
Eagerly awaiting 10/4/11 LTKR
Wondering why, not many books out there but there also are some great youtube videos that haven't got any press here. Google " TKR" or any variations there of to get great info.
Harry, I did look on Amazon for this book and it is not yet available in the Kindle format. I find that I prefer to read books on the Kindle or the Kindle app on the iPad these days. I also felt that the Total Knee had more than enough informatio for me.
Did you enjoy this book?
I have Daniel J. Brugioni's book on kindle, and Daniel Fulham O'Neill's in paperback.
Both are excellent and you tube has some really good videos of exercises for before and after TKR
Eagerly awaiting 10/4/11 LTKR
I don't know why it never occurred to me to consider looking for exercises on YouTube, but I bet that would be a good resource!
I ordered this book from Amazon for $15.00 just about 5 months ago. I understand that it is now available for your Kindle for $9.95. These prices seem reasonable to me. The book is truely awesome-a tremendous resouce for anyone having a TKR and also for family members.
Total Knee Replacement & Rehabilitation - The Knee Owner's Manual by Daniel J. Brugioni, M.D. and Jeff Falkel, Ph.D., P.T., CSCS
I have the Kindle version on my iPad, and have been very happy with it.
This has been a very valuable book, highly recommended. 5 stars!
I think if you read back in this thread, Chris, you'll find it's been recommended in almost every other post!
I just bought the book from the Kindle Store & had it delivered to my Kindle. I will start reading tonight! I go Wednesday to set surgery date
My Kindle allows me to add bookmarks and even notes & it's easy to go back and forth. So I got the e edition. My husband too has a Kindle & I plan to lend him the book through my Amazon Kindle account.
I got this book delivered wirelessly to my Kindle for $8.99.
I just received "Total Knee Replacement & Rehab" by J Brugioni and Jeff Falkel. I ordered it on Amazon for $8.98. I ordered used but it is in perfect condition. I can already tell that this book will be close by my side for some time to come!
I downloaded this book to my iPad, good pictures of exercises.
Have read this excellent book from cover to cover - am not even on the waiting list yet, but guess I may be very soon!
This book (Total Knee Replacement & Rehabilitation) is $11.37 on the Nook Color. It is a little more than I usually pay for a book. But I have downloaded the free sample, for what it is worth. They also have another..."What they don't tell you about total knee replacement pre-op". Think I'll download the sample of that one as well. It is more expensive, $24.99. Somehow they don't seem like bedtime stories....
