"It was so great I'm having the other done!"

Knee pain had caused me pain for about 12 years. I had stopped almost all physical activities, such as biking, swimming in the ocean, dancing, traveling, etc. because I couldn't stand for a long time on my knees. My knee would get stuck and I couldn't bend or straighten it for about 5 minutes. It was hard to get up from a table in a restaurant because my knee was so stiff after sitting there. I couldn't keep up with my friends when walking or hiking.

Life is better already, 7 months after my knee replacement surgery. I have been in the ocean swimming every day for a week, been on a segway all over Richmond, VA, dancing, walking, doing yard work. I even took a train to attend a concert, and stood for almost the entire 3 hour long show!

I saw a huge different following my first knee replacement surgery. It was so great, I am having the other knee done this week.
