In Scouseman's Recovery Thread (My TKR Journey) on Page 2 Josephine was commenting on the answers Scouseman gave to her questions. Since it was so early in a very long thread, I didn't want to quote it there and interrupt the thread, so I was wondering if someone would tell me what Josephine meant by this answer: Scouseman: Leg raises 4 x 10 repetitions 4 times a day Josephine: a tip: once you can do a straight leg raise, you don't have to do them any more! What does that mean? Would someone please elaborate on this. I suppose I could take that literally, but it would be very helpful to me if I knew what the implication was by that comment, since in my recovery I'm likely to be inclined to follow the basic six Post Op HEP exercises, one of which is: Straight Leg Raises: Repeat 10 times Hold 3 seconds Complete 2 sets Perform 2 times a Day The other five Post-Op initial Home Exercise Program (HEP) exercises are: Quad set (2 sec) - towel under knee: 15x; 1 set; 2x day Seated Long Arc Quad - 1 sec (with assist): 15x; 2 sets; 2x day Ankle Pumps (Hold 0 seconds): 10x; 1 set; 10x day Heel slides - 3 sec (with assist): 15x; 1 set; 2x day Heel Prop: 1x (Hold 5 minutes); 1 set; 2x day These 6 exercises are given to the patient on leaving the hospital (I got them at my Pre-Hab) and my assumption up to this point has been that they were intended to be done at home right away. As a matter of fact, I've been doing the leg raises already as a way to "be ready" for them. Is this way too much to even be thinking of doing when I get home. Should I instead do some subtle (gentle) subset of them? Not at all? If not at all at first, ease into them as tolerable? Thanks in advance for any help on this.
