Many patients are afraid to exercise following surgery, although exercise is a critical component of post-surgical recovery. The exercise starts in the afternoon following surgery, when the patient must be up and walking. The idea is to walk a little farther the following day, and then a little further every day after that, including the first few weeks at home. Patients are often liberated from medical limitations and urged to resume exercising two weeks following surgery, with just the amount of wound pain as a limitation. The kind of exercise is determined by the patient's general health. Some people with severe knee difficulties are unable to walk but may be able to swim or bicycle. Many patients start with low-stress exercise and are encouraged to proceed to more strenuous activities as they are able.
