What Made You Decide to Have Knee Replacement?
I worried about my walking at every step and it was slowing me down at age 58. I began having trouble with my knees in my twenties and problems steadily progressed.
What Were You Not Prepared For?
I knew that it was slow going along the road of recovery but older people than me seemed to recover quicker. My bend is about 130 and I lay my leg straight to about a 5 degree. The work to get my knee at that point was a job!..I got a low bicycle and would peddle whenever I watched television. I also did the exercises from therapy as I was directed.
- Patience, Patience, Patience..... and when I got tired and sick and tired I knew the knee would only be as good as I pushed to make it. One year and a half later I am still working to make this new knee as perfect as I can get it.
