Fortunately, I am a chemist for a large chemical company. We've always had great PPE due to the nasty stuff we work with and it's one scientist to a lab. The main issue will be walking and standing for 4-5 hours dailyStairs will come slowly but surely. You may feel pretty tired your first days back at work, so just rest when you get home. I hope they have good safety protocols for you at work. Take care.
So, to answer your question - yes, wearing the wrong shoes can certainly make your knee hurt.Ok.....WEIRD QUESTION....could wearing the wrong shoes make my knee hurt when walking????
Are you getting up and going to the bathroom? Are you getting a drink or something to eat? How about bathing and brushing your hair and teeth? All these things are exercise so you aren't being a 100% couch potato. Sometimes you need to cut back and rest more. This does no damage to your knee at all. If anything it helps it to heal more because it's not being stressed.So how much damage can I do to myself by taking a few days off "life" and just being 100% couch potato? I know I'm stiffening up, but am I doing damage?
Yes, my new knee feels completely natural. It's in much better shape than my old knee. Yours will feel natural, too, in time. I think once you learn to be confident in its abilities, then you'll forget about it and then just get on with living!is there ever a time the knee feels natural?
