I read with interest about skiing after TKR here in this column. I am not a skier but am a bicycler and have been for years. I am interested in knowing how long it was before you felt you could get out and do basic rail trails again like you could before? I am 5 weeks post-TKR, got on the bike this week for the first time in PT and had no trouble at all with getting a full revolution the first time out. (PT told me to slow down!). I mentally need to think I'll be back in the saddle- pun intended- very soon but am not sure. Anyone care to share their experience?
