New Knee
« on: October 24, 2018, 12:29:36 AM »
I had a total left knee replacement yesterday and spent a reasonably comfortable night with the aid a little push button 😉 Pain meds are good.
Rehab starts today so that will be interesting lol..
I am looking forward to getting back to not needing crutches etc to get around so I can get back to working on my bikes.

Thanks everyone...unfortunately Nurse Julie the little button was only for the fist day so I am back on “ normal” strong painkillers now.
The rehab is painful but it has to get better 😳

It will get better Andy, the more you use that new knee the less painful it will be resulting in you having confidence to use it even more. Never refuse the painkillers offered, even if you're not in pain and never, ever refuse the laxatives 😀😀😀😀

Good luck Andy.
A mate has had two knee replacements in the past three years. He was up and walking within a couple of weeks of each op. As his name is Steve (as in Austin) and we nicknamed him the bionic man as he was off and walking ahead of us to the pub following the ops!
Good news it's your left knee and not your kick-starting right knee so it shouldn't affect your biking and you can keep the 16:1 pistons with confidence  ::)

At least it's the right time of the year and you should be raring to go come spring. My other half had a full hip replacement done early this year and the speed of recovery was amazing to see. She hasn't been able to ride her
Z750S for 5years and now she's back on it.  Have a speedy recovery.

Next Spring is a long way off down here in Australia...we are heading into a hot summer.
Just arrived at the Rehab hospital... maybe here for around a week or 2 as long as the swelling goes down.

Keep on top of painkillers (take before pain kicks in 3.1/2 hrs ) it will be fine, make sure you do your excersizes ,don’t give up on them and you’ll be running around like a goungun.  All the best and you’ll be right for  swinging your leg over for 2019..
