Arthritic knee

onefield1, Jun 7, 3:18pm
I had a knee replacement a few years ago and now the other knee is starting to go. I am in the habit of taking long walks and I'm not sure whether to keep on doing this for as long as I am able or to ease off in case it is making the knee wear out quicker. Any advice please?

I would say your knee is going to wear out anyway and I say walk while you can

Bone broth.
A teaspoon of gelatin in hot water every night or more if you can drink it.
I put a tablespoon in cocoa powder.

Agree. Same with my hips. Stop walking and you have other side effects to deal with. Maybe a second replacement is the option.

How long a replacement lasts does have a lot to do with what you do. The surgeon would have explained all that.
So, have walks, just not as long.

Swimming, warm pool handy? Use that daily, much easier on joints, just walking in the pool. Gentle on knees and hips.
