Knee replacement operation

I will have quite a lot of time to work on wikitree in July because I will
be having a knee replacement.  Do any of you have experiences with
after procedure to aid me with rehab so I can work on wikitree as I am able to?

Best of luck on your surgery and recovery.
Good luck! I'm heading to my mother's house in another state this week to help her out after her knee replacement surgery. I wish you a successful surgery!

I had a knee replacement last August, Beulah.  Best thing, well one of the best, I've ever done.  Advice?  Listen to your physiotherapist and do every single exercise he or she sets; but try not to get ahead even when you're feeling great.  No exercise equates to a waste of your surgeon's time.  I have lost 53 kilograms (whatever that is in pounds) since my operation, simply be being able to walk again.  No change to diet.  All the best.

My husband had two replacements at the same time two years ago, he went to psysio that is very important you do that, he could walk without stick

3 week after the operation, he could do a lot quiet soon you should be able to use your computer very soon.

I certainly wish you luck let me know how you are going please

There are a couple of local hospitals that are claiming they get people walking again within hours of joint replacement surgery, in fact one even say's that they release you the same day. As others have said follow your doctors orders and stay as active as pain allows to heal faster, oh and don't use a laptop, sit at a desk.
