What Made You Decide to Have Knee Replacement?

Severe arthritis limited activities especially long walks.

What Were You Not Prepared For?

Five weeks into a fabulous recovery, I noticed a very annoying clicking sound. I haven't discussed this with my surgeon (appt next week) but from my research it doesn't sound like this is going to go away!!

Lessons Learned

  • Be sure the pain in your knee is unbearable on a day to day basis before TKR - the new knee has it's own problems. I wish now I had waited until the pain was so bad that I would welcome 'clicking' over pain.
