Knee surgery

Hello…I am now just 10 days away from having a left knee replacement…it was postponed from November.

I was wondering how swollen my knee will be afterwards and for how long?

I guess I need to be buying some loose joggers. Any thoughts and suggestions?

    Hi Nicholaj, wishing you all the best for your knee surgery.

    I had my right knee replaced 8 days ago, although it wasn’t as swollen as I expected I too bought some lose fitting joggers. You don’t want to be trying to pull on anything tight fitting, like leggings or jeans. I also wore a skirt made of jersey/jogger material, which made moving easier too. I made sure I wore my trainers for good grip & stability especially when the physiotherapist gets you doing post op exercises the following day.

    Good Luck.
