Sitting at a Desk After a Total Knee Replacement

Well, a discovery was made earlier this week. Prior to this week, five months after a total knee replacement, I was sitting on the sofa with my laptop. Sometimes I would have my leg extended while other times I would not. It finally was getting too uncomfortable sitting on the sofa, so I switched to the desk.

The desk and hardback chair are a much more comfortable setting. My leg is flexible enough to touch the ground, like a ‘normal’ knee when I sit in the chair. It didn’t use to be like that only a few weeks ago. So, as I sat for the majority of the day working on my laptop, I would get up every half hour (or so) to stretch my legs. Ouch..That’s life, though.

Then, after getting done writing a few hours later, I noticed that my bionic leg (leg with artificial knee joint) was very swollen around the ankle. In fact, it was so swollen, I couldn’t move it. Woah….

Prior to my total knee replacement, every time I sat at my home desk I would prop my leg up on a large exercise ball. It was the only way I could keep my knee from locking up on me. (It was not a fun time.) So, after noticing how swollen my lower leg was the other day, I decided to use this tactic again.

Problem solved. No swelling, no pain, and no griping. I’ll have to find something else to gripe about. (My exercise ball is the same height as the seat of my chair. Perfect fit. )

Moral of story: Exercise balls are good for more than just exercising. They can be used as a leg extender while sitting at a desk. 🙂

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

  • As you can tell, I am at it again! I am going backwards on
    your blog. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for all your little
    “tricks”. I am the director of Roseau Co. Historical Society in
    Roseau, Minnesota (where hockey is King!) so find that I
    sit at a desk more than I should be. Although an exercise
    ball may not fit under the desk, I can improvise and will.

    Incidentally, Roseau, with a population of about 2,800, has
    been state high school hockey champs 7 times. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_high_school_boys_hockey
    Notable Roseau Co. hockey players include the Broten brothers, Butzy Erickson, and many more too numerous to name. We are the place where hockey really rules our cold winter.

    Hi Charleen,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Congrats on Roseau’s hockey success. That’s cool!
    If an exercise ball doesn’t fit under your desk, try propping your leg up on your hard drive. 🙂 I “discovered” that the other day when looking under my desk. It’s the perfect height to coincide with my chair.
    Good luck!
