I’m 59 and having partial knee , right on oct 31 and left on dec 19. My doctor says I can return doing all my activities. This means playing ice hockey, road biking 25 miles, skiing 4 times a winter. Has anyone out there proven this is possible.

Return to normal life is the purpose of doing this.

P.S. I had a TKR and am playing pickle ball and riding the recumbent bike 30 miles a week.

Yes, plenty of members return to very active lives, but you need to heal first. Recovery, even from a partial, takes an average of a full year. If you rush into your favorite activities before your knee is ready, you can slow down your recovery with set backs.

Recovery is temporary, be patient and take the time your knee needs. Then you’ll have a good recovery foundation to go out and do those things you want.

I found your thread, and am now following, thanks to @Poctdb, indirectly. I was also 59 when I got my tkr, and I just wanted to encourage you that yes, "this is possible." I've had a couple lingering problems, and might not make it back to all my previous sports, but most of them are intact. Most of my athletic tkr friends and acquaintances have recovered to there sports more quickly than I am doing, but I'm getting there. Good luck on your upcoming surgeries.

Okay I played ball hockey for a season and not ice but I stopped playing. At first it was a bit stiff but I’m a goalie but flexibility was not there. It came back but then decided not to play this season. I had other stuff going on anyways but skating is ok I have tried that. Bike meaning bike or motorcycle I got both and they’ve been ok to ride. Like I said I probably would have been ok playing but being flexible was a part of my style before and didn’t want to be like Glenn Healy who was the last stand up goaltender.
