Re: my knee surgery

Tricia: Those exercises make ALL the difference in the world to
recovery...anytime you mess with a joint it's important to rehab it
properly so it will have as much range of motion as possible once
healing is complete. Glad your surgery went well...sounds like a good
recovery so far.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] my knee surgery

Ceres,<br>I am at home, my surgery was done in an outpatient clinic on
Thursday <br>morning. I had a drain tube which was full yesterday when
they took the bag <br>off. Did you have that? I am thinking that helped
with getting rid of some <br>of the swelling. I am still swollen but the
PT measured my knee yesterday <br>and it was only 2-3 cm larger than the
good one so not much swelling left.<br>The doctor talked to me before
and my husband after about arthritis in the <br>knee. I have pain in the
good one too but no where near as much as I had in <br>the bad one.<br>I
had a skiing accident over 20 years ago and now it is the one that I am
<br>having all this trouble with. He said it had more play in the
ligaments so <br>that was damaging the cartilage.<br> I am 51, how old
are you... if you don't mind me asking? He gave me some <br>strength
exercises to do yesterday so I better get to doing them. He also
<br>talked to me about using the crutches right and not using

them where I teach <br>myself to walk wrong... he said be sure to swing
my leg all the way through <br>just like I would do if I was walking
normal. I hope some of this makes <br>sense... when I reread it I am not
sure I can understand it.<br>Tricia<br>----- Original Message -----

you in the hospital?<br>> What was your injury? My knee is still swollen

have not buildup the strength in my knee <br>> as I<br>> had before the

lots of arthritis in the knee which is I'm sure is no surprise at my
