It is likely that you will have booked your operation date some time ahead and it is important that you use the time to strengthen your leg muscles as much as possible. Of special importance are the quadriceps muscles which are at the front of the thighs and support the knees. The stronger they are, the quicker will be your recovery.

As you may be using crutches immediately after your surgery, you should also try to strengthen your upper body muscles so that you will be able to use crutches effectively.

We will make sure your GP is aware of your operation in case you need more medication or develop complications.
