Exercise vital

The hip operation is a quicker recovery period that the knee, provided you do as they tell you.

What I want to emphasise is the importance of exercise after the knee operation.

After your operation, you will be asked to attend physio classes at Peel Health Campus; they are wonderful.

But, the message I hope to get across is you must continue to exercise after your time finishes at Peel.

I am entering my fifth month after my knee operation and find I still have to do my exercises twice a day.

Is it getting bettter? Yes, but for some of us it takes longer than others do.

I bought an exercise bike as I find that is a great help.
