Exercise following knee replacement

Kneeling for yard work is NOT in my cards, for sure. But I actually did a "fast" command in obedience with my dog the other day and lasted for more than 10 steps. I was pretty proud of that even if I was the only one who noticed it. My gut would say that kneeling on the knee for any extended amount of time might tend to "wear" it abnormally. Not quite sure why I think that, but I certainly would never want to "break" it…….ever. Of course, rainy days really do get to me. My PT said I will be a "walking barometer" for years to come…….ugh.

Well,, one of my PT’s said that she had worked with professionals who needed to kneel in their job – roofers, firefighteres, etc. – and they eventually got used to it. She gave me advice how to perhaps get there, but nope. Knee pads it is. If I can find good ones. I am able to kneel as long as I don’t go past 90 degrees, so weight stays on tibia. I’m just ornery. Do not accept limitations easily. And, major storm front – potentilal of severe storms heading my way – knee tells me so.
