Weight Loss is the way to go. Tibial Osteotemy benefits being felt

In January 2018, I underwent a Tibial Osteotomy operation in the UK. I had been suffering from the onset of arthritis on my right knee and needed a solution that would avoid a knee replacement operation and get my life back to some level of normality.

In my last blog post I mentioned being diagnosed as being on the range as Pre-diabetic (type 2) – this means my last blood test showed my blood sugar to be higher than normal. This has made me urgently realise I need to make life changes to bring my blood sugar levels to a point that avoids me taking medication, or being affected by actually having Diabetes.

For the past 6 weeks I have worked on reducing my food portions, eating less sugary food and increasing my exercise intensity.

I have dropped 4kg in weight. My weight now is 105kg and my target is to get to 90kg in the next 60 days.

Eating less processed meat, eating more vegetarian dishes.
For Diwali, we had Spinach Paneer, Pumpkin Curry and Roti.

I have kept my knee exercises on point also and with the recent weight loss, I am feeling less of the pain. Previously and on some days, I do feel pain around the scar, joint pain in the knee . This will not go away completely, however it has lessoned considerably since my weight loss regime.

As the weather has become colder, I feel a lot better than the same time last year.

This does go back to the advice that was shared post Tibial Osteotomy of losing weight and eating healthily. I have found it difficult but have found my stride (albeit via another health condition) and expect to continue.

I am thinking of taking up Yoga now; some of the stretch positions put the knee in some painful positions for me but I’ll give it a go to see how it fares.
