What Made You Decide to Have Knee Replacement?
Unsuccessful arthroscopic surgery.
What Were You Not Prepared For?
The callous attitude of some surgeons . One surgeon looked at me and said, "You are too old for knee replacement surgery." I am not. Another said that I had arthritis and to learn to live with it. This is unacceptable to me!
- Research any prospective surgeon. Do your homework. I ended up with a marvelous orthopedic surgeon and therapists and walked out of the rehab hospital ten days later without even using a cane! Also, do your exercises. It pays off!
