It sounds like you're doing well and there's no reason to worry about sitting with your knee bent.Am I ok just sitting in a bended knee sitting position for the times in between .. oh I also walk around the house a bit during the day and go upstairs at night and come down again next morning.
I had my TKR a week before yours. My wonderful anaesthetist talked me, in simple, plain English, through my options [I was all for a GA] and he promised me I wouldn't know a thing about the op if I went for a spinal block and sedation.Thank you for this.. I am as new to posting threads ( needles and cotton are only threads I had in my life up to now!)
Well I am on day 6 had op 7 days ago.
It's funny because I think I am frightened of the knee healing and it having not being exercised enough and thinking it's going to heal inside but not work as I haven't been able to do all the exercises.
It's such a strange concept wanting something to heal and yet having to keep moving it at the same time.
I really want it to work ( as does everyone I'm sure you don't put yourself through this for nothing!)
I am feeling tired at the min and am aware of having another two lots of exercise before bedtime!
Think it keeps me awake worrying how much am going to fit it all in!
Did anyone else on here have a total knee done Around same time as me? If so how is it going?
No. The physio isn't intense at all. The opposite in fact. Apart from the static bike which was a bit of a stretch, it's just regular loosening of stiff tendons, constant advice and careful monitoring. I will try gentle abb and adductor machines tomorrow, for my own interest.
