Hello, I have made several. complete and partial.
It is completely safe to perform any sport as long as you maintain a good muscle tone of the lower limb to ensure its stability.

Playing softball will not hurt the prosthesis, so when you recover you can perform them safely.

thats good to know...but is my surgeon saying I should NOT play softball or Jog or run
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
why is he saying this
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
does it wear the prosthesis our quicker?

Of course even you should not do it.
That is why I tell him he must recover slowly and properly.
Your surgeon should tell you that you still can not because you need to recover and it is your doctor who will tell you when you can start them.
His surgeon was the one who saw how his bone and ligaments were found when placing the prosthesis, so it is he who can assume the necessary time to start the sport later.
But the most important thing is that you always exercise your knee.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

If you meet your recovery you can play softball without problem.
Although you should keep in mind that any sport has a risk for the traumatism, but that does not prevent you from doing them.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
