If you are allowed to or can get to a pool, water work outs are wonderful after joint surgery. Walking in the water helps and there are plenty of water workouts on You tube. I had hip replacement two years ago and try to swim at least 5 days a week.

If you have PBS available to you, look for a show called 'classical stretch' and see if that makes any changes in your pain levels and allows you to move onto other types of exercise. I don't think the title adequately describes its effects.

If you don't have PBS, check out her short examples on youtube

I had both knees replaced at the end of 2016. Recuperating from the surgeries is part of the reason for my weight gain. Knee replacements are different for everyone. Hell, knee replacement can be different for the same person. My left knee was worse than my right one. The surgery took twice as long because the surgeon couldn't get my leg straight! I had lost so much blood there was talk of a transfusion. My right knee on the other hand was much easier, surgically anyway. My right knee still hurts, almost a year after the surgery.

Your here so you're doing one of the best things you can do for your knees...losing weight. Exercise is highly overrated when it comes to weight loss. The saying goes, "you can't exercise your way out of a bad diet". So, while exercise will help you tone up, your food is what you need to concentrate on for weight loss.

One of the best things you can do for weight loss and your new knee is walking. That was one of the things my surgeon stressed. Walk, just walk, keep walking...I wanted to WALK my way right out of his office!! ;) Walk as much as your surgeon and/or your knee allows you to. You'd be surprised with the many, many benefits of a simple walk. We're taking physically, mentally and emotionally. So for now, during your recuperation time....WALK as much as you are allowed. How this helps.....Stacy

It's hard to be overweight. It's hard to lose weight". I've chosen MY hard....have you?!?
