Knee pain kinda gone?!
« Reply #94 on: April 19, 2019, 05:40:08 AM »

Knee pain indeed seems kinda gone. Will see for sure next week when I go back to the gym.

Mini-update for Wednesday, April 17, 2019: I did 10 Smith squats[url=http://with 115 lbs today. The Smith machine helped a lot with balance. I could also jog for 2 minutes. Had to slow down to walking because of impact pain, in the left knee and right quad. Cardio-wise, I could have gone longer.

On an [url=https://exrx.net/Aerobic/Exercises/EllipticalCrossTrainer]elliptical machine I can go for 10-20 minutes, because it absorbs the landing impact.

Side note: when I walk with weight (e.g. a backpack) or when I exercise, I'm sweating WAY, WAY more than before the surgery. Nobody I know sweats that badly. Not sure why that is. I did lose some conditioning by being in a wheelchair for months, and I used to sweat before, but not to this level.

My diary. Tibias+femurs 3.75+3.75cm at the Paley Institute (5'5" -> 5'8") in my late 30s.
One of the last patients to use the PRECICE 2.2 nail. I met the first STRYDE patient and I strongly recommend the new STRYDE nail instead.

HI OverrideyourGenetics, Ive seen that you've apparently used Internal Precice 2 on both Femurs & Tibias....
Now please let me ask you:
1) How did each one feel, which one felt more unbearable & harder pain ; Tibias   or   Femurs?
2) Knee Pain, regarding to this do you feel that internal tibia= knee pain permenantly  or does femurs has that risk too?
3) Internal infection in femurs ? what really are the dangers and troubles of having a nail inside your bone canal did you take multiple antibiotics throughout your journey ?
4) Achieveing the maximum goals (8cm) in Femurs....for someone like me i am a girl and financially not rich so i get one shot at this and i am starting at 152 cm so getting the full and i mean FULL 8 cm is the only option....is that possible or are there other dimensions to the issue ?

*Thank you in advance & sorry for too many questions but there arent much patients that have been through both .
