I think it took me a full 6 months before my replacement wasn't the first thing on my mind. I had my left knee replaced December 2015 and remember it was the summer of 2016 when I started moving without thought.6 weeks today. I'm still not able to say it was worth it. But.....pain has gotten better. I am moving easier. I just want to not have it feel so prominently now. I'd like it to fade away and not be my prime thing!!!!
It's still very early in your recovery and you should be having a mostly sedentary lifestyle at this stage. It's far too early to be doing what your PT wants.So PT wants me back. Told me that in 7 days I go they want me to start walking up and down stairs as normal...one goot at a time. Leg stretches on my stomach with legs hanging off the bed and butt lifts. Telling me my new knee is now my good knee. Not looking forward to this, but I have such a sedentary lifestyle that it may be for the best. Ideas?
