Icing and a Total Knee Replacement

Here is a reprint of one of my popular posts that I continually get requests for. Enjoy!

Hi my favorite readers! I just found out that some patients were not told about icing after having a total knee replacement done.  This is unbelievable to me.  Without icing, my knee would be so swollen and painful, it would be difficult to walk. Icing keeps the swelling in check.  It also helps decrease the pain after exercising.  In the hospital, I had ice on all the time.

Once getting home, I iced for about 2-3 hours per day – at least. I don’t believe those who say that it’s too much.  I know it helped me out, so I don’t listen to naysayers.

Today, almost 5 months after my tkr, I still ice after exercising.  It’s usually for about 30 minutes now.  I know I need icing when I can feel my knee and it’s warm after exercising.  That means it got a workout (my PT lady told me that 🙂 )

Prior to my tkr, I used to think icing and ice packs were a waste of time.  My, how times have changed.  🙂

Icing rocks!

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

    I had TKR sevens wks ago, I was just about to quit until I read your article
    on icing. I had my first TKR over 15 yrs ago and not one of my caregivers
    stress the importants to keep long after the swelling has gone down. I will
    follow this advice on both knees when I get through playing golf. Thanks,
