What are the Precautions after Knee Replacement

Posted by Dr Manu Bora

Dr. Manu Bora is a leading orthopedics who specializes in treating sports-related injuries. He has completed several knee replacement operations leading to happy and healthy patients. He enlists the precautions that are required to be taken after knee replacement surgery. Those are:

  • Dr. Manu Bora advises that you take strict bed rest for one day after your knee replacement surgery. This will give the time for your body to heal and accept the replacement.
  • One day after the surgery, you may start walking with the help of a walker. Meanwhile, the health care specialists will also teach you some minor exercises and instruct you to bend and stretch your knee. Again, it is crucial to go slow and heed what your doctor is saying to avoid injury.
  • You may feel drawn towards exercising for hours every day but do not overexert your knee initially. You must only focus on mild exercises as advised by your doctor and neither be at complete rest nor rush into intense training.
  • An important point to keep in mind is that you must keep your foot at an elevated level compared to your heart. This will ensure that the swelling drains off quickly and does not accumulate in your legs
  • Similarly, to avoid inflammation and swelling, it is essential to keep your legs in motion and walk regularly.

If you follow all these precautions, your knee replacement will surely last very long and may even go up to 25 to 30 years.
