"Getting Stronger With Each Day"
Before knee replacement I suffered with entire leg pain for over three years. I always thought it would just go away. I was on a golf league but sat out the summer of 2016. It hurt so bad I was walking with quite a limp and was getting bent over.
I then went on a trip to New Orleans in early October 2016. It was very hard for me to keep up with the rest of the group. It was a painful trip. I came home and immediately made an appointment with my doctor to set up surgery.
I have had no pain since I went into surgery!! I am back to walking with a straight back and I am getting stronger with each day. I plan to return to golf in May 2016.
I would advise anyone with this pain to go in and have it checked out, the sooner the better. Let your doctor advise you with what steps to take.
