Can you ever run again after a TK
I’ve just been looking at an American web site about TKRs and many of the patients are now running marathons! My consultant told me I wouldn’t be able to run again and so I’d be interested to hear if I was given duff information! (Not that I have any wish to run marathons-just being able to walk is fine for me!) Glenda 10wks 5 days
Wow! Everything I have read or been told advocates against impact on legs sports. Cycling or swimming seems to be the preferred options. I ran 26 marathons and innumerable half and that’s why I now have two TKR, before my latest knee in early November was cycling over 80 miles a week. Reduced from 120 because knee was finally giving out. I was very rude to an old farmer who told me I was a young idiot when I ran past his gate. Wish I had listened and could meet him now to apologise and admit he wise wiser than me.
