Effects of Not Icing after Exercising – TKR

The other day after I got done with my walking and working out on my exercise bike, I thought I’d experiment. Usually, I ice immediately after any exercise. This time – I didn’t. I was curious to see what the effects of not icing would be on my total knee replacement recuperation.

First of all, after exercising:

My bionic knee was not swollen nor painful.

The flexibility was very good after exercising.

I felt like I had a good workout.

I was very proud of myself.

Fast forward a couple of hours, after not icing:

My knee was more swollen than usual.

My knee was stiffer than usual.

There were more lingering pains than I had experienced before.

I experienced pain in the middle of the night.

I could not sleep properly, due to this pain. (I usually don’t have pain during my sleep time)

I was not a happy camper.

Moral of story: Icing is necessary after a workout on a tkr knee – even seven months after surgery.

    I did the exact same thing today. I had a massage at 4 and went swimming for about an hour afterward. The hot tub at the place I go was not working so I was unable to benefit from that when I was done. It had rained so I didn’t walk this evening.
    Went to bed to read early and didn’t ice or massage my legs and feet, I usually do this every night, this has been very beneifical. I started tossing and turning about an hour after a fell asleep and finally couldn’t stand the pain in my knee any more. I rocked in the rocking chair for a while, great for flexibility, and massaged my legs and feet. Now I have my leg propped and still am sleepless in Minnesota.

    This information is very helpful to me since I’ll be having surgery in a couple of months. Until this article I didn’t realize just how important icing is to recuperation.

    Hope you are feeling much better soon!

    Monique and Satria,
    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your feedback.

    Monique: I didn’t realize how important icing was, either, until I had the surgery. 🙂 Good luck!
