Re: Knee Replacement
Had a full knee done in 2005 (45 yrs young), back to work in 2 weeks. the PT is a killer. My wife had a partial 2 weeks ago, already at work.
2 things. if they gave you an ice machine for your knee USE IT, it is your life saver. and do all the stretches you can, under your desk, on your bike, everywhere you can. I have full range, way past 90 deg. and absolutely the best thing I ever did.
I still remember asking the dr how hard I could push, his words,"if you can take the pain, do it". Your not going to hurt the knee.
And amazingly the dr, that did my wife knee, the same words exact words.
Good luck, all will be good. a little pain now and YEARS without pain.
45 years riding and still more places to see.
