"Get It Done"

Before having both knees replaced I was in pain 24/7. I wasn't able to take long walks with my dog. I had my first knee replaced in September, 2014 and the second in October, 2015. I had known for about a year that I needed to have them replaced, but I put it off.

I am in rehab for my second knee replacement. If this one does as good as my first replacement, I will be a happy camper. My biggest problem in rehab is the swelling. It slows down your rehab. Take your medicines and don't be afraid to talk to your surgeon and primary care physician about anything.

If you are considering joint replacement, don't wait. If you need it, get it done. Walking in pain is not worth putting off.
