"I Toured Europe for 27 Days"
Before surgery, every step was painful. Only after taking over the counter pain meds could I endure golfing and walking. In addition I had to stop snow skiing.
One day, my knee made a loud pop while I was pushing my left shoe off with my right foot, it was very painful. That's when I knew I needed surgery.
I'm 75 years old and ever since surgery I have not experienced pain in my knee. I did my rehab to strengthen the knee area, used a walker for a few days and a cane for a few more days. I was able to return to golf in less than 3 weeks. Then, two months after surgery, my wife and I toured Europe for 27 days and I still had no pain. Finally, I returned to snow skiing this March without a problem. Kudos to Dr. Chenger for a job well done.
My advice, you'll know when you're ready for the the surgery. I knew once it affected my lifestyle significantly, it was time. I also found it important to not skimp on my rehab. I did roughly, two weeks of rehab and the total function of my knee returned. I never would have believed the difference that it has made to my lifestyle, if I hadn't experienced it myself.
