When I completed the Oxman, I was pretty damned sure no one else that day had a 12 month old knee replacement. So, I then began to wonder how common it is for a TKR patient to have goals like mine. So I went to Google Scholar to find some research stats on the subject.Continue reading “Stats: How many people return to sport after a total knee replacement?”
I have had to do a massive mental shift this month: completely unexpected! Watch to find out what has happened…
If you know anything about me, you will know I’m determined, pig headed and have grand goals. This is how I came to decide that my first race in almost a decade after a long long road through knee injury then subsequent major surgery should be not only a middle distance multi-sport race, but alsoContinue reading “Racing – I’ve made a decision”
I can’t believe that in two months I have my 1 year follow up!! It seemed like a million years away when I saw the surgeon at week 8 and he said that was the next time I was required to see him! Here’s my news this month.
Smith & Nephew, my new right knee has behaved itself pretty well most of the time, until this week when it suddenly started misbehaving. This does NOT sit well with me, and just exacerbates knee replacement paranoia and makes me think I have done some type major dislodgement or something!
I can say that this knee is no longer dominating my life, which seems strange because it has done exactly that for the last quite a few years! I also received a comment from an orthopaedic surgeon from the Uk who said that he had been replacing knees for 25 years and he was seriouslyContinue reading “Vlog update: 9 months post RTKR”
I am on the verge of being able to say I have achieved something with this bionic knee that I didn’t even achieve when I still had my own two knees! Want to know what it is?
Lets get some things straight shall we? Should a knee replacement cause you to re-evaluate your life goals after your operation or not? In this blog I will discuss this very real question for athletes facing a knee replacement.
If you have followed my journey so far, you will know that I am not one to easily take no for an answer. So therefore when I make goals – they are GIANT goals. I am a very goal driven person, it is something that really works for me.
We decided to have a bit of fun! The race over Bluff Hill Part 2: which knees won? We had some fun with this before my op (here’s the first video: https://youtu.be/zJR8STDWH7U) and decided to have a re-run, this time asking which KNEES won?
