"The Improvement is Huge"
Before having joint replacement surgery, almost all of my activities were very painful due to bone-on-bone pain and bad joints. My activity level was almost nothing due to the pain.
My quality of life was so impaired, I had to do something to try to improve my everyday living.
After having joint replacement surgery I have little to no pain-- There's no comparison to before joint replacement. The improvement is huge. I'm back to doing things and living life without the horrible daily bone-on-bone pain I had before the joint replacement. Life is good.
Rehab after joint replacement was difficult and painful, but with time it all healed and the pain went away. Life improved so much. It was worth the effort to get joint replacement surgery.
