Re: Recent knee replacement
I think you are being too impatient in your recovery expectations .I had a total knee replacement 5 mths ago and I find. myself on many occaisons working too long at the exercises in a bid to recover quicker .More is not always better and you need to set a realistic target for the recovery period .
My surgeon raised my recovery expectations too high by saying i would be back on the golf course in 4 mths ,but every one is different some take longer to heal and the older you are and the less exercise you have done before the operation, because of the pain /discomfort etc, is a major factor in muscle recovery time .Some people take 6mths others are 1year.and some less than 4ind mths I have good daysand bad days days and the bad days usually follow using the good days to get jobs done while I feel good. So my overall advice is pace your recovery programme to something you can anage without going backwards and you can only do this by trial and error Be patient, my fellow golfers who have had FNR, tell me it will come good and i am hanging on to that .!! You will get there.
