    The only times I can remember being aware of my implant after healed was when it was extremely cold outside and it penetrated into the implant. It was quite painful for a few hours. After that it was fine.

    I imagine your feeling was caused by the long ride you had, since that's the only thing different that you've done. I think you're doing the right thing to recovery.

    Thanks so much. The rest seems to have done both knees a lot of good. Had a long drive today, got out of the car and that darn fibula went “kerrrsnap” again , feels like it’s back in alignment again as it’s easier to bend my knee again. :gaah:

    Feeling of metal seems to be gone, and original knee feels better too. Guess I just did too much! Always the case. That’s how I wound up with a TKR @45... sigh. :censored:

    :yahoo:Did anyone who did yoga prior to TKR have trouble getting their leg to bend and lie on the ground, like in pigeon pose or sitting “Indian style”? That feels like my last frontier of challenge. That and this darn trick bone that dislocates...

    But I’ll say it again - it is a compete miracle that I can walk up and down steep hills with no pain! Last year I could barely walk down a sidewalk without a lot of cursing! :egypdance:

    I couldn't begin to sit like that. I've not done it in years and won't try it now.

    Sitting cross legged is something I don’t think I’ll ever do again, but I am planning on trying Pilates this fall.
