What to expect 5 months after knee replacement?

Asked anonymously on 27th April, 2022 at 4:13 pm

Regarding what to expect 5 months after knee replacement - If there are no complications then you can work freely as per your wish.

 

But after knee replacement, some patients do not recover as quickly as others. Consider the following:

  • Patients who conducted knee-strengthening activities before surgery have a better chance of recovering faster.
  • It may take longer recovery time for those patients who are older, smoke, or have other medical concerns.

Note: Although deviations from the "normal" recovery timeframe is not always expected, but such fluctuations are usually acceptable as long as the patient, doctor, and physical therapist continue to collaborate in the pursuit of a complete recovery.
