Returning to an almost normal life
Saturday, July 09, 2011
I am pleased with my week. I've made progress from those disabling Synvisc injections. I've tried to work my knees hard, yet not over-do. While it isn't realistic to compare this experience with a total knee replacement, I've tried to follow a similar rehab program.
"Train that/those knee/s like you're training for the Olympics."
"Work those knees like they are your only job."
My only regret was not getting on the elliptical 48 hours after the injections. I could not have walked to the car anyway.
Improvements I am still working for: a smooth gait when I walk and to sleep without pain.
