Knee replacement surgery

After waiting much longer that I should have, I got my right knee replaced today. Doc says the surgery went well. The pain blocks haven't worn off yet so I feel pretty good other than being woozy from the anesthesia. Recovery should be a blast.

I had a Stryker Active knee put in Sept 2016, I am very pleased with the result but it took about 18 months for it to go to the back of my mind. I will recommend that you follow the Drs instructions to the letter, commit to your therapy, and diligently guard against any infections. Two of my coworkers did not and one is on his third knee because of infections, and the other had blood clots, a couple heart attacks and then died. all preventable.
Good luck, and a speedy recovery.

Love your enemies, it will make them crazy.

I started riding again the following April, just around town at first. by May and June I was doing 100 to 125 mile trips a couple time a week. I considered it an important part of my rehab. That is where commiting to the therapy paid off.
By the way I was 69 at the time.

Love your enemies, it will make them crazy.

I can't believe you're able to post today. It was days for me.

I'm glad you're good though. Have mama get you some stool softener and take it with your narcotics.

Thanks joe. The pain blocks are wearing off. I just hit the pump for the first time about an hour ago. The nurse came in few minutes later with stool softener meds.

First 30 days really suck, the next 60 days suck. After that, you’ll ask why you waited so long.

Going pretty good so far Fred. Mama mowed the yard for me the other day. I drove myself to the doctor's office yesterday for my first followup and went to the grocery store this morning to pick up a few things. Home health sends a therapist 3Xs a week. I'll start going for "real" therapy in 4 weeks. All in all, it's not as bad as I thought it would be.

Well at least with post surgical pain, it gets better with each passing day. At least until you start PT. And have to do that pain equals gain thing.

Hang in there Salty, you got this covered.

On the up side, you get to spend the summer chilling and drinking beer, while watching someone else cut the grass.

You could always get a trike for a temporary fix or if you like fixing bikes get a CanAm. You doing good keep up the good work.

Glad to hear it's going as well as it suppose to Uncle. Sorry I missed your post.

Sounds like ya got this to me.

Know a good friend that his wife tore her lateral collateral ligament (LCL) they replaced it with a donor. Creepy.

Next day they had her in bending it 90 degrees he said. That was a few months back. Last we talked he was a beliver in seeing results on his wife with sticking with therapy she miles ahead where she should be now.
