Do I give in

I am so what in a mind to give up to stop going to the p luminary course I have been going for 3weeks 2times a week but I find I am in so much pain with my knees afterwards (I have had 2new knee replacements )that I find it hard to walk for a day or two I know that it might do me good to do it but it is stopping me do other things I like doing like a walk around shops and a bit of fishing or alittle bit of gardening or just a ride out so do I stop or do I carry on ??

You need to discuss it with them....the last thing they want is to make you suffer.

Yes,you must talk to them about it,you don't want to do any damage to your knees,or even discuss it with your Doctor.Im sure you could delay it for a little while,& join at a later date.

I believe having knees done,is much more painful than a hip replacement,so please take care xxx

Hi Edtongue, sorry to hear you're having problems with your knees. Sounds really painful.

I would have a chat with the PR nurse & she what she advises.

Take care 😀

Don't know when you had your knees done, but it sounds like you're overdoing it. You might want to wait a while longer. As others said, talk to your Dr.

The physios can alter the exercises to suit your particular circumstances. Do speak to them rather than giving up.

Yes, the P R physio let me do the leg raises without heavy weights because of my knee replacement and the damage to my muscles and nerves in my lower right leg.

Tell them about your problem there are lots of exercises you can do sitting down :)

Everyone's right about altering the exercises to suit individual needs. Im wondering how long ago you had your knees done Ed, and whether that is a factor? You say they are new.

Even Len Goodman on Strictly stays sitting down now after his, while the other judges dance in to join him.

Keep going but don't do the leg/knee exercises and tell them why.

Go and explain the situation to them....there is always chair based exercise sor reduce the number of exercises that affect you. Just put 100% into the ones that you do try. I found that as I went along, because my stamina increased and the times on each exercise increased, I couldn't fit half of them in in one session, so I got a bit picky choosy....on my side of course.
