How to Maintain Exercise Mojo After A TKR

Hi everyone! It is so easy to lose interest in exercising when recuperating from a tkr. At first, the pain is so intense that the frustration level is….when is this going to end? I know that’s what it was like for me. And, the steps forward would be matched with steps backward. It’s unexpected. So…how do you stay motivated when all your gumption is out the window?

Take a break. By that I mean instead of doing your full set of tkr exercises, do one or two at a time. Do a couple later in the day. Break up your exercise routine.

Do isometrics. If the thought of doing your tkr rehab exercises is just too much, isometrics will help. They did in my case. While laying on either the sofa or bed, tighten your thigh and leg muscles. This strengthens your muscles and allows you to use them more efficiently. You’re getting exercise, only it may not seem like it.

Realize it is temporary. Everyone gets discouraged at times, it is only human. Instead of getting upset over your motivation being gone, accept the fact. It will pass.

Get off the sofa. The process of moving around will increase your physical activity. Something as simple as walking (did I say “simple” for a tkr patient?!) will help your tkr situation.

Don’t listen to what others say. People who haven’t gone through a tkr usually do not understand how difficult the recuperation process is. I know this suggestion is easier said than done.

Watch a comedy. Laugh until you cry. Laughter has a tendency to soothe the soul and massage your innards. Personally, there’s nothing better than watching Curly shoot that live oyster in his oyster stew or try to slap it silly. Or, Moe yelling…”Up to the basement!” or calling all high society women “toots”. The scene when the Stooges are playing golf comes to mind. Moe is divoting up the entire green. The grounds keeper goes nuts. Moe’s response…”Aw, what are you grippin’ about? They’re getting smaller aren’t they?” lol…

Then there’s Larry trying to find the beginning of the wire. He keeps pulling on the wire until he circles the entire green and his head pops out of the ground. (You’ve got to see it to appreciate it.) And, Curly….he’s doing his laundry at the ball washer. OK…I’ll stop.

Or…the gopher in the original Caddyshack. Gotta love that vermin. Monty Python is another suggestion. Simple absurdity does it every time. 🙂

Hope this helps. It does get better. I promise.

Find interesting? Kindly share with…
