After my arthroscopies I found that swimming helped to reduce swelling.
Didn't need to be a strenuous session, even a 20 minute dip of gentle front crawl worked. I think it is because the muscles are working and that helps move the fluid away from the knee - but at the same time there is no weight being put through the leg.
Would probably need to be done with good swimming form, straight leg, kick from the hip, relax the ankles - so as not to aggravate anything.
Well, I may lack patience but I do recognise that everything changes, so there comes a time to stand back for good, because at the end of the day it's a beautiful world. I've stopped asking myself why I can't wake up with you, and I just pray that it could be magic when the meds finally kick in.
You're just confusing yourself now, Robbie Williams is alive and well, Robin Williams is with the "Angels" I didn't make it negative, you did by using it as an insult
So you would have us believe that you are familiar with a condition such as aspergers and you are defending it against a negative portrayal by others. But you come out with a savage condemnation of a person who suffered from a condition called depression. Those two postions are rather inconsistent, don't you think? Especially since people with Aspergers are at higher risk of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Odd that someone who professes to have knowledge of aspergers has so little knowledge of the effect of depression.
Or perhaps you know as much about the link between depression and aspergers as you do about aspergers - which is nothing. And you are just trying to use it as a debating tactic.
Look Bos just do yourself a favour and apolgise for the stupid comment about autism and aspergers and move on.
No thank you for your advice Ms Cunk. I think you have demonstrated your ignorance of the reality of depression enough on this thread. Please don't try to extend that to other areas.
In addition Ms Cunk, I don't know if you are aware, but there used to be a convention on this site that threads on 'Health and Injury' were generally left alone, and not treated as playthings. Especially threads that deal with subjects such as depression. There was a Lithium thread recently where you added nothing of value to the discussion - so I doubt you have had any real experience of the matter raised - but instead you attempted to make sad little jokes about it. They weren't funny, just disrespectful. I read your comments on this thread in the context of your comments on the Lithium thread. I would suggest that you are ignorant about depression and mental illness, and that you are doggedly determined to hold on to that ignorance. I am impressed that you have the brass neck to tell me to apologise. I'll leave it to others to make up their minds as to whether you should apologise.
