Post knee surgery yoga

Common Questions and Answers about Post knee surgery yoga


Avatar m tn I remember the doctor was surprised with me a LONG time after surgery how I said the knee I had surgery on was turning very red and hot compared to the other (w/hot water). He said that was a sign of bone healing but he was surprised it was happening that long after the surgery. You might want to defer to your surgeon- perhaps he/she knows using scar medicine is appropriate later on rather than right now.
Avatar f tn i am 53 years old. i had surgery for torn meniscus in left knee on 10/13/2007, and i have been in pain since. i am currently receiving my 3rd round of synvisc. i have had 3 or 4 cortisone injections, they seemed to be helping but the times in between have gotten shorter. my dr. keeps telling me i'm too young for knee replacement. he tells me it's arthritis, i can't believe it. i am not overweight (147 lbs.), however, before the surgery i weighed 128 lbs.
Avatar f tn Surgical treatment is available if physiotherapy, yoga does not help. The surgery will make the patella reach its position from the abnormal position it has taken presently. Take care!
Avatar m tn yoga wouldnt gonna help bow legged problem invasive surgecal procedure with is quite effective at all took about 9months or so and yoga who is for breathing mostly you think can help well its really will not for sure pilatis is more on stretching the body but still not recommendable as I think..
Avatar n tn but no matter what your physical abilities are, you can always do yoga. There are yoga exercises for all abilities, even those who are in wheelchairs. Yep, I just, today, received a DVD of Yoga for Seniors, and some of them are in wheelchairs. Other than that, ChitChat is right - eat smaller portions, several times/day, limit the simple carbs/junk food and opt for high protein, high fiber and good fats, which tend to keep you feeling fuller longer....
Avatar m tn I actuallly had surgery for my meniscus on my right knee. When rehabilitating I did a lot of exercise on the bike. It keeps you active and doesn't add a lot of pressure. The weight loss alone will help dramatically with the pressure. As I have put weight on I can deffinately feel the difference especially after I run.
Avatar m tn I had the same experience with my English Mastiff (although it was knee surgery and not back surgery). We had to keep her tied to the end of our bed-post to limit her range of motion. All she could do was sit up and lay back down. And this was for 8 weeks, mind you. Not fun for us to watch her go through. Not fun for our other 5 dogs not having their pack-leader (Alpha) around. Not fun for her to have to go through it.
Avatar f tn Nice to 'meet' a fellow fibro sufferer. I was actually diagnosed 5 years ago, but I've had it for much, much longer. I suspect since my teen years. It really took hold though immediately after my total hysterectomy. Nothing about me stayed the same. I gained 90 pounds, honest to God, in less than a year. Yes, I experienced all the other fun menopausal symptoms but none of them has taken away what the intensified fibro has.
Avatar n tn Hi, For about a year now, I have had episodes of acute pain that traces along what I've been told is the peroneal nerve in my right knee. I am not sure that it is the nerve itself, but the pain is certainly in that area. I have been seeing an orthopedist/surgeon for around 9 months and we have tried many things with no real help. I have two MRIs that revealed that I also have a small cyst along/attached to my right tibia or fibia (sorry can't remember).
Avatar f tn I did not have a knee replacement, but arthroscopic surgery to the knee. A long time later, I told the surgeon how that knee got all red and hot (post being in hot water) versus the other one. He was surprised it was happening that far out from the surgery but told me it was bone healing that was causing it. It is great your mobility is excellent. If you possibly can, I recommend you get to your local gym with a heated pool and walk around in it a few times a week.
Avatar f tn A recent study showed that the incidence of patella problems was equal in both groups of patients post surgery. The group who had not had their patella replaced originally, did have a higher incidence of second surgery, but this may have been because there was something obvious left to do. Interestingly, the group who had second surgery did no better than those who did not. Your problem is not a result of the patella surface, but of the patella alignment.
Avatar n tn I am 8 months post acl surgery. I started having medial knee pain around the insertion site on my tibia. When i walk for long periods or use the eliptical it hurts sharply. Only hurts with weight bearing. It is starting to both make me nervous and make me feel like this is it for life.....
Avatar n tn The chiropractor asked me to cross my left knee over my right knee then used that rubber hammer. My knee did not react. This was the first over the years. She thought I should see a foot doctor first because it might narrow down some testing with a neurologist but I had felt seeing a neurologist would be more important at this point since my knee did not respond to the knee test. I do not have insurance at the moment but will in September. Do you think waiting is a bad idea?
647391 tn?1275016633 I am 50 years old and set to have knee replacement surgery in a month. This is because of damage to the knee and missing cartilage. What is your thoughts as to someone my age having knee replacement surgery. Also, what is the quickest recovery you have seen for someone with knee replacement surgery?
Avatar f tn My husbabn had double partial knee replacement surgery on February 23 and has done remarkably well finishing the physical therapy in three weeks and down to 1 or 2 vicodin a day. This morning the right knee is swollen and very stiff and he is in a great deal of pain. We have been icing but he could hardly make it to the bathroom. A Vicodin and Vistiril have helped but we are troubled by this event. Anyone experienced this at the 6 week point?
Avatar f tn Hi, all. I hope everybody is handling life well, during the holidays. I am approaching my 12 wk post treatment viral load this week. Honestly, I'm expecting it to be undetected, since I was undetected on week 4, week 8(during treatment), and week 13(one week post treatment). I wish I could say that I'm feeling great..., not so much. For the past 2-1/2 wks, I've been in pain.
Avatar f tn Had RK microfracture & LK OATS. Somewhat able to do things with tolerable pain level. Started back with the floor pilaties & yoga. Too much stretching I guess. I started where you are with similiar discomforts. Then started to hurt behind the knee and on the lateral side. Now...I can't stand without both knee fatique and pain, i can't walk without pain. It has ruined me! I'm walking with braces and oh boy if i have to go up or down stairs, HELP~!
