    Excellent news!
    I too have a friend who has had her knee replaced and it has made a world of difference. icon_cool.gif

    I had arthroscopic surgery 5 years ago just to clean up the inside of my knee - a procedure I had postponed for years. My only regret was that I hadn't the guts to have it done much earlier. From constant nagging pain to full, painfree mobility in just a few days. You will love the results. Keep us informed so that we can be your cheering section closer to the time! grouphug.gif

    Thank you all!!

    I am going to go into this with such a positive attitude! I'm 53 and grandma to 4 little girls that want me to take them for mani/pedi days and shopping. I've not been able to do this and I just wanna cry! Once done, then the even more serious and daunting job of losing weight. Not being able to exercise has been a horrible side effect of this bad knee, can't walk and I am so remote/rural there is no where within 43 miles to do water aerobics. The surgeon laughed when I said I was looking forward to the PT afterwards...I want to feel the burn of muscles working! icon_smile.gif

    Regarding the 'burn'.....It's almost a guarantee that you will get what you wish for! icon_wink.gif

    Good healing thoughts, vibes and prayers will be sent your way!
    I have two sisters-in-law, many friends and my mom that have all had it done (some had double knee replacements). The first weeks of rehab might be tough (everyone is different) but the results will be well worth it! icon_smile.gif
    Hugs.

    Good for you Cindi. My SIL had her knee replaced about a year ago. She said the pain was way less than she expected. Her therapist told her to take pain medication before each session. She did, but didn't even feel like she needed it. Good luck and you'll have so much fun running after those granddaughters, you'll wonder why you waited to have it done.
