    Both knees replaced with an 8 week gap in between surgeries. After your surgery u have to keep that knee moving. Now laying around in pain. U have to keep it moving. And do physical therapy faithfully I overcome my knee replacements because I didn't give in to the pain. As much pain as I was in all my life prior to surgery the easier it made the surgery. I had a friend that has 1 dine before mine and she wasn't exercising it and has more problems then bedoreand her surgeon did the surgery with her way to heavy. So now she sits in a chair day n noghtt complaining about it. Why because she didn't keep it moving. It's so easy and yes it hurts but for me it hurt less. And just knowing I finally got my new knees and would be able to do stuff kept me going. My replacements are amazing and I can now live a life

        as long as ur incision is completely healed you can do water activities. If it's not u ca. Get an infection in that joint. But keep it moving. When I was sitting in my chair and laying inmy bed I would pull it up close to me and then stretch it out as far as I could. I don't know how many times a day I did that. However for me it was a feel good stretch. I got to where it felt good to get a little past the last stretch. I can almost get my he to my rear-end still and it's been a few years. But it might feel good for you to to stretch those muscles and it's no impact so it less painful. Abd your right no pain no gain. But u can do this. Uf you keep it up ur gonna be as happy with yours as I am with mine🤗
