"I Feel 10 Years Younger"

My life before joint replacement surgery caused me to stop going to the gym, walking, and exercising. 

I realized I needed to get joint replacement surgery when the weight gain from non-movement made the situation worse, and I needed to feel good again. 

Joint replacement surgery is the best thing I ever did! I bought a FitBit and walked 10,000 to 15,000 steps a day. I returned to the gym and used the elliptical and circuit training machines. I can do anything I want, and I feel 10 years younger. 

Definitely go to physical therapy! Learning to use those muscles before surgery will help with the recovery.
