I had a knee injury last November and was out of work for about 2 weeks so the lack of mobility and easy 24 hour a day close access to the pantry can be risky to say the least. Keep the crisper stocked with veggies of all sorts. I use spinach in everything.

Hope things are going well for you Swampy! Take it easy on that knee.

Unless your Drs have said otherwise, so soon after the surgery isn't the time to be 'dieting' - your body needs the energy to repair itself. Ensure that you are eating mostly healthy foods, plenty of protein (vital for the body to repair itself) and healthy fats and carbs from healthy sources - not processed.

I would be inclined to talk with your Dr about your weight-gain (which is mostly likely extra fluid in the tissues re swelling - even if you don't see the swelling - weight-loss/nutrition goals and have him/her clear you for anything further! You really don't want to compromise your health!

Hi everyone I don't know where to begin except I need help. A year ago I had a total knee replacement with complications of not healing properly. Thru various Drs. they concluded it was a pinched nerve in my back. So 16 days ago I had back surgery. So far the leg is still shaking.( I know give it time).
Meanwhile I gained 20# from the knee surgery and another 20# overnight in the hospital. How can that happen?

I need to get my eating habit under control. At least that will help till I can excercise more than walking 15 min at a time. Help and give me some suggestions. I am replying to indygirl blog as she has overcome a lot.

Well it has been 1 1/2 years since my knee surgery and 3 months since my back surgery. Tomorrow I go to the back Dr to hopefully be released. The surgery did help my back pain and released the nerves being pinched to my knee. I have quite shaking and my right leg is stronger than the other one. So now it is TIME TO GET WITH IT.

Thanks Spark People
