Today was the first day hubby and I went out for "exercise". We went to Yard Sales! In and out of the car and walking on all types of surfaces. It was a good way to get used to the cane since the knee replacements.
The feeling is different for sure but a workable. I'm not putting the cane down right because it feels better in the other hand but Dr. Jeff Mendleson said to use the hand opposite the last knee down which is my right hand. I suppose it's because I am left handed in most things but I do bowl, play ball and do other things right handed.
Well I will continue to follow Dr. J Mendlesons advice. He has been the best surgeon. After getting my hip and knees replaced and each one turning out so perfectly I know he knows his craft and his talent is one I will be grateful for each day for the rest of my life.
Anyway, we were out all afternoon and I did get tired but it was a good tired and one I'm sure my body will tell me about later (it always does hehehe!)
I'm shaky so some cool watermelon will be my treat for a good workout. Maybe not like most can do but its what I can do and that's what counts right now.
