One really isn't advised to be one their knees after total knee replacements depending on type and all...but general rule of thumb...

My Dr. told me early on that I wasn't going to hurt the knee but some people didn't like the feel of it so didn't get down on it. Now (at 19 mos. out) the replaced knee doesn't feel any different than the other one. I have to admit it wasn't easy at first but had too many things that needed me on my knees.

I kneel on my knees but they don't like it. My Surgeon told me that knees are not for kneeling

They allow you to swing your foot to kick the......(you finish it.)

After two ACL's and the right knee replaced I cannot kneel down without pain either. I don't have the range of motion that most have indicated that they have and I did aggressive PT 3 times a week and at home the other days. Watching me get up and down off the ground is a keystone comedy in itself.

I also have a Dr. Friend that has had his knee replaced and he is the same.

Different strokes for different folks. I also think that the age that you have it done at is a factor.

My doctor told me right after the operation that he got 130 degrees deflection after the operations. Yeah! Right! I was still under anesthesia and he could have wrapped my leg around my head and I would not have cared. Sheesh!

had both knees done about 8 and 9 years ago, really no problem I am now 77 and very active, I still do irrigation system installation getting up is not fun to watch but works. I had only 5 rehab treatments for both knees, with in 1 week I was climbing a ladder, working on my equipment getting in and out of my trucks. Note,,,,, do it carefully,,,, for me it was no big deal........ However when I jumped down out of the back of a pickup, in midair I thought,,,,, this is going to hurt ,,,,, made it safely, but never again.....

I made the same mistake once also.

An RVing girlfriend of ours had her left knee done about a month and a half ago and she is already out in their RV camping with the best of them. She is also of the opinion she should have gotten the job done sooner.

I had my second set of knees done early this year (yes 3rd and 4th replacement). I was traveling comfortably within 8 weeks of the last "revision". Just make sure you continue as much of your rehab exercises as possible. I found I could do hundreds of quad sets while driving :-).
