Really? That Is Still Hard 6 Months Post Knee Replacement

I’m finally getting back around to my blog after a bit of a hiatus. Thank you, Covid-19, for giving me the time again. ( If I can find a bright side in all the madness) I thumbed through the old journal and pulled out the useful info from around the time of my 6 months post knee replacement mark. Learn what was hard, really hard, easy, and really an overall update on my life at this point in the knee replacement journey. Some things may surprise you. 

The Hard Stuff 6 months post knee replacement

Shall we start with what I found surprising? The “how in the heck is this still so difficult” stuff? Why not? As long as you promise to keep reading the maybe more obvious things later, Hehe. A number of these fall into the hard category while others are downright, very hard, to impossible.

So Easy 6 Months Post Knee Replacement You’ll Wonder Why You Waited So Long

This next section involves all the little things that help me through the pain that still occurs at 6 months. The pure frustration I feel when the things I listed above get me down. This section is all about the things that came easy at 6 months post-op knee replacement. Some I could do before, but it would be a struggle. Others I could have never done, and now I don’t even have to think about it! Oh, that’s the best feeling in the world! 

How Far I’ve Come And The Journey Ahead 

It’s pretty crazy to look at this list and think back to Weeks 1 through 4 or even those years pre knee replacement surgery. I really have come a long way! I am excited to see what the future holds for me and my bionic knee. I have some big plans for this knee of mine, including running some races, leading ultimately to a Disney Princess Half Marathon sometime in 2021 or 2022, depending on when they open everything back up! 

Did you find out anything surprising? Are you at the 6-month mark and experiencing some of the same, or maybe some completely different easy activities or difficulties? Let me know by leaving a comment below or contacting me HERE

Until the next part of this knee journey, take care!
