It’s been almost 6 months after my total knee replacement and my knee has really swollen up today.Â I’ve been exercising more while attempting to increase its flexibility.Â I’ve gone up and down 18 stairs 3x today. Going downstairs is getting easier,Â but the swelling has increased.Â Yesterday I went on my routine walk around the motorcycle course.Â I’ll forgo that tonight and elevate my leg while laying down.
The pain involving my tissues and muscles is worthy of a pain med.Â There is no pain in the knee joint, though.
I guess I’ll be a couch potato with my laptop while icing my knee. Hmm…I wasn’t prepared for my knee to remain swollen for so long after my tkr.Â Oh well….
