- Camino(s) past & future
- Camino Portuguese Coastal Route(2016), Del Norte (2017) Camino Portuguese Litoral Senda (2018)
I'm starting this thread as future advice for others who are contemplating a Camino after knee replacement. In my case, I've had two this year, one in January and one in April. I'm leaving on Wednesday, Porto to Santiago and I feel good. I have been very aggressive in my post op therapy to improve my range of motion and to regain and repair the surprising loss of muscle that resulted after my surgery. I am on my feet a lot and am walking 3 - 4 miles a day. The bones have healed and now it is the muscles and the balance that need continued repair. I have previously done the CP-Coastal (2016) and the CdN (2017). I will be 63 in September and I'm way over weight. Nonetheless, as a fellow pergerino has advised, I will go "not too far and not too fast", and that is how I will roll on this adventure. I'll post periodically to update my progress.
