Yesterday, I went on the recumbent bike for the first time since the knee replacements and YES!!! two 40 minute times...I can't believe I was able to do that. It even helped the the restless legs I have been getting from taking the pain meds.
The other shocking thing.....meds are down finally again...pain meds only a couple times aday (that will go down as I get my knees back into working order) I was taking them every 4 hours. Icing seems to help the most now "I can't believe it finally!" anyway the meds are now cut in half and soon I will get off the pain meds except when really needed. That will rock!
It felt so good to shock my hubby when he said ok be careful just do 20 minutes on the bike and I did 40 twice!!! I could see the look in his eyes ...fun stuff heheh!
The walking with a cane stuff is rough but better each day (only been 3 days so far)
The eating better is trying to take hold. Funny but when I get the exercise in I don't want to over eat because it takes away the good I feel by exercising.
So my eyes are watching to see how I can shock myself.....again and again!!!
