Anyone had a complete knee replacement in recent years???
Going in tomorrow for one...blew off arthriscopic 2 times now I'm bone on bone...been limping around since January....

The hardware is a little scary, thank God for meds...I know the recovery is going to be difficult...

I'm 25 years too young for this, but got to do it....

Anybody have any encouraging aspects???

I know the pain will be worth it...

You refuse to see evil, and so you welcome it among you. You allow it to exist. You give it power over you. You are a people who have welcomed death and refuse to denounce it. You are an empire naked to the shadow of evil. Terry Goodkind, NAKED EMPIRE

Re: Anyone had a complete knee replacement in recent years???
One of my great friends is about your age and had knee replacement. She had a cadaver (sp?) knee and parts. Sadly hers went horribly (which isn't common so don't fret)

Wishing you the best! It is a hard recovery and requires a lot of work and endurance to keep on keepin on.

Good that is the best way to go, her issues were because of the cadaver knee.

She's been through a dozen or so more surgeries since.

Are they thinking this replacement will last you your life time?

Fight through the pain.

You will be hurting bad for 1 to 2 months.

YOU HAVE TO KEEP DOING THE EXERCISES RELIGIOUSLY
TO CONTINUALLY TEAR THE SCAR TISSUE THAT FORMS.

OTHERWISE YOU WILL NEVER HAVE GOOD MOBILITY.

Wife had it done a few months ago and she is
out shopping, doing the laundry, EVERYTHING.

She did her exercises and cried all the way through.
BTW the oxycodone wont touch the worst of it.

She has a girlfriend who had it done,
spent the first couple weeks in bed,
didn't do the exercises, and she can barely bend
her leg now.
It almost healed like a pegleg.

 Quoting: Oldmotherhubbard


Yes, one of my issues was "Can I kneel", I'm Catholic and they said no problem...I do have some longevity genetically, my Mom is 87, the reason I blew off the other surgeries was because the first doc told me that surgery wouldn't fix the issue, it would come back...

Had the Hylagen 2 times..gelatinous goo that they shoot under the knee cap....next doc told me I would most likely be a candidate down the road for a replacement...so I toughed it out as long as I could with the help of cortiszone shots....

Tomorrow's the day!!!

Re: Anyone had a complete knee replacement in recent years???
you should do great. If the tibia and femur bone the implant is going into is solid, and you are not extremely overweight or diabetic (increases risk of infection), you will prob have zero complications and a good usable, pain free knee for a long time. If you have a good surgeon doing it you are set. Good luck.

I never post here, cause really.. It's usually a waste of time.. But my dad recently had BOTH full knee replacements in the span of about a year and a half, followed by neck surgery. He's nearly 70 now and still kicking strong, if he can do it you surely can. Hang in there dude(ette). Do your exercises as everyone said, stretch, take it easy and you'll be fine.

My Dad had both done at the same time and has no pain...the recovery is painful but you must do all the exercises exactly as they tell you and when they tell you to do them...that's the key to success...

I have had two knee replacements and recovery is a bitch. But after you get done and do all your exercises you wish you would've done it earlier.

A couple of things get a walker for the first two or three weeks and get some good ice packs to keep the swelling down. Then you'll start therapy once you're in it it will go through real quick keep stretching her legs and you'll be all right.

Good luck on the surgery

Going in tomorrow for one...blew off arthriscopic 2 times now I'm bone on bone...been limping around since January....

The hardware is a little scary, thank God for meds...I know the recovery is going to be difficult...

I'm 25 years too young for this, but got to do it....

Anybody have any encouraging aspects???

well I have not had such done but a close friend did, who is in his 50's. It worked very well for him and he had a shoulder done and was waiting on the next knee. My own brother had both his hips done, he was long time runner and destroyed them and once healed, took up skiing again.

It's the "if" part, I should relax, though, my first and only bone density test was good. I could use to lose a few though.

Thanks..

A co-worker of mine had both knees replaced last September.
She's doing great and says it was the best decision she ever made.
She said the next day the constant pain was gone and only had the pain from the surgery.
She no longer limps and is back to walking the golf course cuz she can.
In fact last summer she couldn't pay golf at all.
Good luck and a fast recovery OP.

Day after surgery up walking and using CPM machine....

My surgeon got a kick outta me...apparently during my surgery they had Pandora and rock tunes playing...

Kid Rock's All Summer Long came on and apparently in a state of semi consciousness I started singing along...

Hope to be home by Monday...thanks for all the well wishes....
