    hope you have a quick recovery.

    I'll be interested in your commentary about the procedure and rehab...going to have it in the near future.

    Make sure you go to a good PT clinic, and listen to them.

    They told us that if you do this, they will send you home. The doctor comes in and confirms with you before any sedation.

    Besides, I will need the other one done within ten years, I am sure they would comp me the surgeries if they screwed up like that. Win-win!

    Also make sure the replacement bends in the correct direction before leaving the hospital. Otherwise, walking or even pedaling a bicycle will be problematic.

    Speedy recovery!

    Good luck.
    A ride buddy of mine had both knees done at the same time. After recovery he was riding better than ever.

    My mother had a hip and both knees replaced (not all at the same time). The knee recovery was harder than the hip recovery, but in either case, she said it wasn't that bad -- mostly because they make much smaller incisions than they used to. She said the end result was well worth it. You'll probably love it so much, you'll want to get the other one replaced!

    Did you get a Pitbull Knee, or a regular knee?

    I'm sincerely gratified on your recovery and rehabilitation process. New upgrades justify the price.

    Best wishes on your recovery.

    Glad it went well for you. What did they do with the old knee? My dogs like to chew on things like that
