You can do it Wayne. Replaced left knee about 20 years ago and the right about 15 years ago. Always refused therapy and really did not need it. Just started walking. They are still working although at 79 I do use a cane because of Diabetic neuropathy. They should last me until I expire.

Hey John,
I've seen you most weekends all summer last year and didn't know you were having trouble with your knees... glad everything is going well for you. As was said, make your therapy appointments... they really do help.

My sister had one knee done last year and the other is scheduled for later this spring... she stayed at a nursing/therapy center to recover as she lives alone and did recover well. She hated the center, but was smart of her to do it....

My wife had a full hip replacement in 2009... worked out well for her.

Heal well.

If you look for trouble, it will find you!

Knee update: it is now eleven days out, and I have been off the pain meds for two days now, with no ill effects. I’m still having trouble getting comfortable at night for sleeping. I am walking unassisted,albeit with a pronounced limp for now. PT is going well and I am regularly doing my home exercises. I was able to drive our car down to the inspection station to have its emissions tested, with no problems. Two funny stories about PT. During my first session the therapist was checking my range of motion, seeing how close she could get my heel to my buttock. I quipped, “Is that all you got?” She had me screaming “uncle!!!” in about half a second. A couple of sessions later she put me on the reclining bicycle for the first time, put a heat wrap around my thigh, and told me to go forwards and backwards, and that my knee would eventually loosen up and I would be able to go all the way around. She then went to her office to do some work. After about three minutes my knee did loosen up, and without me trying I did do a complete Revolution with the pedals. I was so surprised, I yelled out “S———!” She looked at me througn the window of her office and started laughing. She knew exactly what happened.
