Planning Knee Replacement Surgery , What to Do ?

Planning Knee Replacement Surgery , What to Do ?

WHAT TO START DOING IF UR PLANNING KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY?

1. BUILD UR MUSCLES AND RANGE OF MOVEMENTS
Before the surgery, you're expected to do homework.
People who strengthen the muscles around their knees have a faster, easier recovery than those who are weaker going into the surgery. "If you reinforce the connections, especially of your inside quad muscle, it will be easier for them to reconnect,"
For the months or weeks leading up to your operation, try to get on a bicycle or work with a physical therapist to build your strength and expand your range of motion as much as possible.
2. BUILD UP THE VITAL CAPACITY OF UR LUNGS
Deep breathing exercises
pranayama
Incentive spirometry - started much before surgery , help ur Lungs/body cope and decreases chances of lung associated issues like ARDS
3. KEEP UR SELF CLEAN - Infection anywhere is a strict no for replacement surgery
Treat any infections of urinary tract , skin , soft tissues and other areas .
4. BUILD UR ENDURANCE - start long walks and exercise as much as you can , as ultimately it is needed post surgery .
5.PREPARE YOURSELF MENTALLY - to undergo the rigours of surgery and rehab , a mentally tough person is the one who does very well post surgery.
6. HAVE A BUFFER BUDGET - for extras if stay is prolonged .

WHEN TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF UR PLANNING KNEE REPLACEMENT ?
"In a perfect world, I would love to see you a couple of months in advance,". "
Then you're comfortable with the exercises, you know what you're supposed to feel, and the recovery goes more smoothly." - DR DEEPAK INAMDAR
