I'm closing in on six months and I can kneel quite well on the carpet. Then I tried it on the hard floor and that was so painful I think I'll wait another six months before I try that again. I have read in many different sources that kneeling is not going to damage the new knee, and my surgeon says the same, that there is no need to worry about that, so I'll keep trying.13 months on and I still can’t kneel (too painful) is there usually a timescale on this ?
Ice and temps hovering around freezing are the worst. I much prefer outright snow. Though notThank you for asking these last few nights things seem to getting easier, I’m getting more sleep now thankfully, terrified of walking outside at the moment as it’s getting a bit frosty over here in the uk, nothing like you get in the states though. The thought of having a fall really is scary.
Agree. I bought two thin special pilates cushions for kneeling which are made of foam. They are not thick but quite springy and supportive. They really seem to help with the funny sensation.Re kneeling: My surgeon told me that many people find kneeling awkward/uncomfortable after a TKR. I find that it helps to put a thin pillow or folded towel under my knee for some cushioning. It still feels odd, but I'm gradually getting used to the sensation
