Exercise following knee replacement
I just have set my mind to getting everything accomplished that I wanted. Not discounting the pain, but I guess attitude is very important and working really hard, especially at PT.

Impressed by your progress, I share your determination, and even though my mind was absolutely set on no matter what, I WILL kneel on my knee for yard work – not really happening. That was my “everything”. To me a huge disappointment. Guess we are both stubborn. Trying out the 3rd set of knee pads. Your progress at this time after TKR is remarkable. Congratulations!
@emb123 I agree, attitude is hugely important. My PCP has commented on my attitude helping me to be so successful in handling various problems I’ve had.
I have never noticed any weather indication in either knee!
@ellerbracke I was the same way, I wanted my freedom to drive. That was a very big incentive for me.
I am the same with limitations but I have no real need to kneel so it’s not a problem for me. I can do it, but I don’t think I would want to be in that position for long.
