Impressive. I started playing tennis again at about 5 months out, albeit against less than top-notch competition. Started hitting against a ball machine about 2 and a half months ago (2-3 times a week), then added in actual matches (once a week) about a month ago. Getting a little more mobility back each week, but need to get serious about dropping a few pounds before trying true competitive tennis. Doc and others who had TKR told me it would be 6 months before I could play decent tennis again, so I'm beating that by a bit; 6-month anniversary will be January 6. Good to hear you are enjoying your physical activity of choice again, and with TWO TKRs. Again, I'm impressed. Happy New Year.I can run again. I run about 1-2 times per week and only on a soft track in high cushioned shoes (max of 5.5 miles, but usually a little under or over 4m) or short uphill repeats. However, I'm taking a break from the 4-5 mile runs for awhile at this time and just doing uphill repeats on the treadmill. Trails are snowy or muddy. I did not run until 2+ years past my 2nd TKR and the majority of my exercise is low or no impact. I'm slow. But, after a 15+ year hiatus from running, this ex-ultrarunner is enjoying his old favorite activity in limited moderation. Hiking is really my favorite thing now, but it does feel great to do a little real running.

No, kneeling per the Ortho. He said don't kneel, avoid kneeling, why do you need to kneel?? It can be irksome at times but the feeling is so oddly uncomfortable that I avoid it. Ortho only asked me not to do two things .....do not take up running and DO NOT KNEEL.Are you kneeling on the replaced knee?

Interesting how each OS differs. The only constraint my OS put on me is running.No, kneeling per the Ortho. He said don't kneel, avoid kneeling, why do you need to kneel?? It can be irksome at times but the feeling is so oddly uncomfortable that I avoid it. Ortho only asked me not to do two things .....do not take up running and DO NOT KNEEL.
