In retrospect, 1 mile was too much, too soon. I ended up paying for it with extra swelling and pain in the night. I carried my cane with me but I did not need to use it.Wow! Impressive that you were able to walk for a mile! Can't wait to get there!
Did you use a cane or crutches?
You should be fine having an colonoscopy within 2 to 3 months after your knee replacement. But it's always a good idea to verify that with your surgeon just to make sure. You may be asked to take some antibiotics prior to the procedure, but you should be just fine.I need to have a colonoscopy and the presence of blood makes it likely that there may be polyps that will need be removed. My concern is the possibility of causing an infection in my knee joint. Does anyone have knowledge of when it is safe to have a procedure such as a colonoscopy following a TKR? I have to admit that infection is one of my biggest fears following this surgery.
I'm only attempting exercises recommended for my current week. But, obviously I'm not ready for some of them and will try again next week.I'm sure the mods will come in and give their two cents but why are you working on strength this early?
