Update on Webbie's new knee?
He's probably too busy rehabbing, but does anyone have an update on Webbie25's progress with his new knee? Thanks, Mel

Hey, Mel-thanks for the query. It is going about as expected-working on gaining range of motion, walked a couple blocks today, doing CAM on the stationary bike, stuff like that. Still a while from feeling 'good'. Talked to Lewis (Steve) today-he had both of his knees done and he is ready to start softball practice this weekend-wow!
Talk to you soon.

Webbie, I know what you mean about feeling "good". My surgeon said I wouldn't care much for him for several weeks. Glad to hear that it's going well. I'm scheduled in a few weeks since I didn't get any cancellation move-up. Keep the faith, Mel

Webbie, Keep up the good work and softball as well as pain free movement will be right around the corner. I have my pre-op in a couple of weeks and get my new knee Feb. 18. Couldn't be more anxious. Mel

Mel-email me-weber5069@msn.com--I'd like to keep up with you on your surgery. Is it a total knee replacement? Thanks, Webbie

Hi Webbie, As they say, it's in the mail. Hope your rehab and recovery continue to go swimmingly (a little pun). Thanks, Mel

Webbie....Just a little advice..if you have a pool that you can use! it is a great device to help you in your rehab.I had both knees done six years ago and was frustrated trying to get back to softball. My PT guy told me to simulate as much softball related motion as I could in the pool. it made a huge difference for me. I still do some exercise in the pool at least three days a week.
Just my two cents on the matter.

I'll second Mr. Manassas's pool advice. I found that helped me to increase my range of motion a lot since I did not have to support my full body weight.

Mr. Manassas, MurrayW-thanks for that-it is fabulous advice. When I had my ACL replaced in 1990 I 'ran' miles in shoulder deep water in the pool at the Riverpoint Club here in Albuquerque. I think I will see about doing that again. Thanks!
