Exercise Feedback & TKR

Wanted to post a short message encouraging all who go through a tkr. I have been walking faithfully, everyday, for the past three months. It is approximately 3 miles round trip. Nothing fancy, just plain and simple walking. I say it’s plain and simple now that I can do it. We all know that’s not the case upon first recuperating from a total knee replacement. In fact, for 30 years I didn’t have a beneficial gait. Anyways…

The birds are chirping and singing their appealing songs. Yesterday a dear pranced across the road in front of me. A few days earlier I heard small childlike foot steps (or as Curly of the Three Stooges would say “I hear footprints”). As I kept walking, the sound was getting closer. I turned and saw a deer go into the woods on her merry way. 🙂

My tkr leg has a “normal” gait. It swings freely, like it has not done in 30 years (when I sustained the initial traumatic injury). My orthopedic shoes fit remarkably well and are unbelievably comfortable. I never thought I’d find such a comfortable pair of shoes and am just thrilled about it. It’s the simple things in life…like comfortable walking shoes. And….

I can fit into my smaller size jeans. 🙂 Plus, my eating habits have improved.

I partially attribute this success to listening to Tony Robbins. He’s cool..

Hope this helps others going through the same thing. TKR recuperation does get better.

Find this interesting? Kindly share it with others…
