"Walking without a Cane"

Before surgery it was painful to walk. I had to curtail my activities (water aerobics, line dancing, and fishing) a great deal.

My turning point was when I saw the x-rays of my knee, showing bone on bone. I knew then why I was having so much pain. 

It has been ten weeks since my surgery and I am walking without a walker or cane, I can ascend and descend stairs, and can pedal forward and backward on a stationary bicycle. 

I continue to follow a daily exercise regime and I am continuing to improve.
