Thank God you weren't hit by that car. Your soft tissues are really angry right now and it'll probably take at least a few days for it to calm down some. More than likely your implant is just fine. Those things are very tough.

My knee is much much better then it was. I was able to put the walker away again. Surgeon said continue to ice & elevate until swelling is gone. They said since I’m able to walk on it, I did not damage my replacement, just soft tissue. Bad new is I have to wait in swelling to go away before I get back to bike riding - it’s out there calling to me! I guess I need to be grateful that this is the first blip in an otherwise amazing recovery. I still want to whine tho . Now that I’ve had a taste of having a normal knee & being active again, it’s so much harder to sit around

I'm so glad there was no structural damage. Ah patience - it is a virtue. Good luck getting the swelling down! Try to ignore your bike's siren song for the time being!

Hello Pam,
Sorry to hear about your accident. It does sound like all will soon be back to normal.
I don't know about you, but March 16 seems like a long time ago!

@gooseisland1 Mar 16 seems so very long ago! Life has changed in so very many ways since then...... both my knees & life in general

I understand your joy at getting on a bicycle. It is scary to think you might injure those knees. Once you get over this episode, you'll be back on the road. It's so much fun! Take care of yourself.

I am back to riding again, doing my best to contain myself & not overdo it ..... 8 miles yesterday & 11 today. I probably could have gone more but played it safe. It’s a lovely 70 degrees with sun & I have so many miles & miles of paved bike trails along the river to explore. I’m loving my new knees so much! I had not been able to ride a bike for so many years or walk my dogs ( who now demand walks)

You are so blessed to have areas like that to ride in. I have to travel far to find nice trails to ride on. I'm stuck riding on the roads and have to watch out for cars.
