Hey there I’m 18 days post-op and would agree with the upper body strengthening and I would add that there are various forms of “dip” like motions at the bed, chair and toilet and “pull-up” type motions at the car required. Don’t minimize the importance of grip strength here! I’ve always trained upper body strength and ran a 20:30 5k 48 hrs. before my operation… 48 hrs post-op I could go 200 ft. in 3 min. with a walker…HUMBLING but I have faith I’ll run again !
Great point on the good leg! Single leg squats and lunges will help you IMMENSELY! I’m very thankful for a healthy right side going through all of this!
