Old Guy Hockey Knee Replacement Update 6/7/16

June 7, 2016

Hope everyone is doing well. It been a while since I’ve written and  was glad to see some of the guys this morning. I’ve been doing other stuff since I haven’t been playing hockey. Got back to the gym once the knee started feeling better. Got back to work at full speed for the last few months. I want to thank Paul D. for letting me borrow his paddle board,…


Old Guy Hockey Return?

April 8, 2016

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve put out a blog post on OGH. I almost visited the rink on Tuesday morning to try out skating but I woke up real early (3:30) not feeling to good.    So hopefully  in the next few weeks I’ll be trying out the new knee on the ice. Since my recovery has been going well and I haven’t been playing hockey in the…


3 Months into the Knee Replacement Rehab

March 21, 2016

As I left this morning with crappy weather , snow and vehicles off the road , I wanted to put up the pic from 2 weeks ago. I was near the beach and I popped by on that day it hit 75. I think it was like high 60’s when I was there …. Little taste of summer! Anyway …..   Rehab has been going good. It’s been three months since…


Knee Replacement Rehab Going Well

Well it’s been just about 11 weeks since my knee replacement and things are going good! I can walk well and climb stairs without assistance. If you didn’t know I had the knee replacement you couldn’t tell by my walking. Overall I’m happy with the recovery and progress. I am still having a bout with Insomnia but it seems to be getting better slowly. I have reduced PT to once…

Last day for the custom cane

February 15, 2016

How’s everybody doing. It’s officially been eight weeks since my knee surgery. I’ve been walking pretty good for the last week or so and today’s the last day of the cane. That’s the custom cane thanks to Bob Coco.     Even though I can hobble around without assistance, I have to say for the last 4 weeks the cane has been quite a conversation piece! As I’ve written in a…


PT today with a Twist that really made me think

I had PT this morning and after a very grueling but encouraging session I found out my Leg extensions are good. My angles are great …. from a sitting position I’m at 115 degrees (really good … going for 130) and because of my knee issues over the years this is a real good#. My knee was so messed up I don’t think I had 105 degrees before surgery…. SWEET!…

Like my new cane 

January 26, 2016

Thanks again to Bob Coco at No Icing Sports for letting me borrow this custom Old Guy Hockey cane!    Today, after my grueling hour and a half session of PT ,  I feel comfortable going from one crutch to the custom cane.  Thank you  to Keith and Matt at Performance Physical Therapy for taking good care of me and pushing me along! Who knows maybe by week 6 I’ll…


No Icing Sports 

January 22, 2016

Went by to visit Bob and Anita at No Icing Sports this afternoon. Not only do they have the best skate sharpening service around but they also help out Old Guy Hockey players in rehab…. (That’s physical Rehab you wise asses).     A customer of Bobs made this cool cane for Bob when he had his hip replaced. Bob thought it would be nice to put it to good…
