Generally after the surgery a physician will ask you to stand and take up few steps with a walker or cane. If you stand and walk on your new knee after the surgery then it is most likely to recover faster and have less difficulty when compared to those patients who couldn’t even stand up right away. “Most of my patients stand up and take few steps in four hours gap after the surgery” says Dr. Rewat Laxman a total Joint specialist in Bangalore. 24 Hours After Surgery

Complete and partial knee replacement patients are able to go home within one to two days after surgery. Some patients may be discharged to a rehabilitation facility if they cannot safely return home. Our physical and occupational therapists help the medical and surgical team to make a decision in this. “Most of my patients are ready to go home the day after surgery” says Dr. Laxman. “My patients tell me the first two weeks after surgery are very difficult and then slowly life starts getting better.

Going Back to Work

If you work at a desk bounded job you may be able to return to work after four to six weeks. If your job requires frequent movements like lifting standing or bending you may return to work after six to eight weeks. If you work at a more labour- intensive job then your doctor will work with you on a customized estimate of when you might be able to go back. In few cases the time frame might be up to three months.

Returning to An Active Lifestyle

slide 15:

Patients are actually more active after their knee replacement in some cases because they are finally able to move around without any pain in the knee. It’s good to return to activities like swimming cycling hiking and golfing and we encourage it once your physical therapy is completed. We do not suggest jogging basketball football and other games which have high impact on knee as they put pressure. Discuss with your joint specialist about your athletic goals before surgery.
