"I Resumed All My Normal Activities"
I had to quit almost all activities in my life before joint replacement surgery because I was in a lot of pain.
The moment I knew I had to go ahead with joint replacement surgery was when my doctor said that I was out of options.
My life now has allowed me to resume all my normal activities. I am 71 years old, but my knee is wonderful. The scar is almost completely gone thanks to coconut oil.
Please talk to your doctor about having knee replacement as soon as you can especially if you can't stand the pain anymore. If you have the option to go to a swing bed unit, take it. I was in the swing bed for 16 days and had therapy 6 days a week, and it was well worth it. If you don't have that option, take all the therapy you can. The sooner you get flexibility in your knee, the happier you will be with your surgery.
