Reply To: Knee replacement – help me!

To start I sat in a chair and did 3 sets of 10 leg extensions every day. After awhile I added 2 and 1/2 lbs weights. Once that became easy I added 3 sets of 15 getting up from a chair using only my legs (I kind of hold my arms in “I dream of Jeanie”). Finally, I was able to do deep knee bends, 3 sets of 15. Almost forget I joined a gym and do 3 sets of full leg extensions every other day. I think it took close to 2 years to get where I am today.e

As for IVIG, I was really lucky. The emergency room doctor had seen a GBS case before. After determining that I had not had a stroke he suspected GBS. Within 48 hours IVIG was administered. I realize the good fortune I had so it helps me grind through the work.

I hope this helps.
