I have found a major problem with having new joints fitted and much greater mobility . It enables you to climb steps and fall off them, breaking my big toe in the process. >:(

I am very careful with the stairs, going up I tend to use the bannister and my arms, going down is a problem as the knee does have a habit of letting go, so for the moment I'm being a wimp and doing them one at a time, tried doing it normally on the bottom steps and the knee gave out, so that is out for the moment.
I also have not been brave enough to try kneeling on the new knee yet.

Cheers

It does get better... I am doing Exercise Physio as well as normal Physio so I am at the gym once a week for an hour or so... doing stuff like squats, lunges and then leg presses to get strength back..
Kneeling isnt much fun but I can do it.. my only problem is I still have a bit of fluid around the knee and still have a large section which has no feeling at all.. which is really strange. I have certain exercises they want me to do that I need to be on my knees for.. bridges etc.. I dont like them much but figure they must be good for me.. :)
Stairs get easier... I find them pretty simple now but they are much easier in shoes than bare feet.. go figure huh..
