    Had very similar surgery on both my knees. Left knee I was 19 and I was up and literally running after a week. Right knee was at 37... Same opp, I pushed it too hard too quickly and was not walking properly for a good month, this included having physio treatment every day (Mother a Physio!)

    FFS do what your Surgeon suggests and don't do too much too soon.

    Regards

    Its a breeze bob your best pal will be frozen peas YOU WILL BE WAlKING THE SAME DAY !!! week later you will be gagging to drive in 14 days you will be, ice ice baby and keep moving around between resting with leg up ,a pillow between your legs in bed is a good way to sleep , i had it done three times and then two replacement complete knees joints all on the left one 11 ops later and three years all due to that tosser putting me into the dash of my old truck. but haho i can walk nr as good as i did but not for as long .just think of it as a dremel and a wash out few 10mil cuts bugger all when you think of it and you get a good kip in white stiff sheets lol

    cheers lads.

    thanks for the heads up Paul, i will do as i am told (for once) and take it from there.

    oil i wish, i can't shoot prone now and in the cold mornings nights its a bit of a pain in the neck, 'pun intended' and WH your right Salisbury it is on the 30th and if they need to do more work on the spine it will be done by the same bloke there too.

    i paid 35 for the cd of my operation all my ct/mri scans and xrays, well woth the money as it helps the hospital raise funds.

    well chuffed.

    bob.

    Do as your doctor advises. I had keyhole on right knee for a rugby injury and went back to work too soon because I was desperate to get back to normal. Developed shingles and forced to have another two weeks off!
