BeeBee,  You are so right about staying healthy.  You are an inspiration to all of us, to stay busy and healthy and strong.

I've been told, throughout my knee surgeries and following therapy, that it is NOT GOOD to do any doubling up on PT post surgery. I tell others to do what they tell you - no more and no less!

A good therapist will know how much homework to give you. Doing less results in less agility. Doing more results in huge fatigue and possibly the need to skip sessions. Not a good idea. 

Your enthusiasm is great but the advice should come from a professional. Otherwise, damage can result. My two cents.

You  are so right on doing more than what your PT tells you to do.  I remember 1 time when my knee was feeling so good and I was riding the one bicycle she had me on, I told her I think I'll go a bit longer on here, my knee feels great.  She said that's up to you.  I was in so much pain that whole weekend, when I went back in on Monday I told her how it had hurt.  She said...I knew you would feel the difference but you needed to know what you can and can not do.
