    well this has been a rather disappointing turn of events wrt my recovery from knee surgery. Still not sure what has caused this massive inflammation in my GOOD knee but I'll blame the sudden onset of chilly morning temps and RAIN!
    Since Monday I've been pretty much crippled and bedridden. Could not perform so many of the stretches that require standing and both legs, could only do the ones where I lay on my back in bed, and even those were painful.
    Figures that just before any of this happened I was sailing along pretty good, even had DH remove the raised toilet seat in the bathroom. ( Now I'm cringing every time I go in there).
    My " new " physio sessions start at 9 a.m. today....oh joy! Have a nice day everyone, sorry for the bummer post.

    @walkonby sorry to hear about your set back in your recovery and that you are in lots of pain. Hoping you can get back on track soon

    I'm so sorry you're in pain! Usually, the pain and swelling in the other knee is because of the slight height difference that you have until those ligaments and tendons and scar tissue can be stretched through physio and movement on the new knee. A real kick in the tail to be hurting everywhere! Get that raised commode back and make sure you're taking your pain meds every 4 hours--watch out with Ibuprofen-wrecks your guts. Use ice when you can as well.

    My dad got a bit depressed after his second knee since he didn't bounce back as easily--he was also several years older, but it made him unhappy. He cheered up after a few bars of Walkers Brazil Nut Toffee. While this isn't really medicinal, it sure does taste good. Be kind to yourself!

    @alex78 Thank you so much for the advice and possible causes for this, I always blame the weather....ha ha . Good ( sort of ) news that last night I was able to do the FULL rotation on my stationary bike with both legs! To be able to really push down and forward with the operated knee meant so much.

    Round and round I went ( with light tension ) but still.....it was a huge improvement from the last few times. I did about 4 minutes of cycling but it made a difference.
    It may have improved because of the 3 times I went outside in the hot sun to do some grounding. Then DH and I did a once around the walking park, ( took about 15 minutes at my speed, lol ) BUT...I only used 1 finger to glide the walker on my right, not relying on it to support me.
    I'm still too scared NOT bring the damn thing for a distance away from my house in case I need to sit. So your dad was very brave to do both knees!
    Kudos to him for that. I think that Toffee was the best medicine!


    This morning I finally got the chili made. I splashed a bit of red wine in it JUST because! ha ha

    Glad to hear your doing a bit better @walkonby . A client of mine had his knee replacement done finally after it was bone on bone and he was bowing with his leg . He said surgery was easy, recovery was super hard BUT now after several months he feels incredible. He canít run anymore (thatís what did the damage) but heís back cycling. He does go down south in the depths of winter but our winters are not only cold but WET and that is miserable even for me!

    I was hurting yesterday from physio but nothing like you @walkonby . My therapist upped the shockwave and deepened the massage . Guess it needs to be done.

    Father's Day, Frankie's 3rd birthday and the guys week off work are all over. The upcoming work week I'm sure the guys are dreading as the heat will weaken them as with most physical jobs. Lighter fare is on the menu for them for meals. Salads and sammies and tons of extra beverages.

    In contrast I self cleaned the oven at 3 a.m. by pushing " start " and then had to turn the A/C up more to feel comfy again.
    The 2 beef meat pies I made yesterday and the new batch of chili I will be making today will all be food they can have at home....in the A/C environment.
    Have a great day everyone.

    Plus 1 for me @flemeth . I have physio at 8:30 then it will be back to the A/C bunker! ( home ) . I intend to take in the first episode of Season 2 of House Of Dragon!!
    What I found delightful on Netflix was a series of interviews with David Lettermen. There are about 5 seasons, I just watched a few from the latest season, with Miley Cyrus,
    Charles Barkley and Cardi B. They are really good interviews.
