I had a total knee replacement 10-23-13. I try to get to the gym 2-3 times a week. I find it hard to motivate myself. My hubby and I drive to work together so when I get out of work we go home, eat and then I find it hard to get motivated to go back into town. I do walk 15 minutes at work every day.
This winter has been atrocious for me! I have seasonal disorder and with all this snow/cold I am in FULL hibernation mode!
I have discovered that I don't have the full "bend" but I keep doing my stretching exercises...the PT said once you "break" that point you'll be fine. I do wake up stiff in the morning, feeling like a band is around my knee, I still have some swelling that occurs too.
I had RNY in 2009 and lost 105 #s, gained back 30 in the past year (broken foot - 12 weeks limitations then TKR). I would like to lose at least another 80 #s. Now with my new knee and spring right around the corner I am looking forward to nightly walks and bike rides with my hubby. :)
The one thing I want to SHOUT about is that I haven't rode an upright bike in over THREE years and now I can! WOOT!!!
