"Life is Normal Now"
Before my knee replacement, it was very painful to do any walking at all. It was almost impossible to stand while doing work in the garage.
My wife urged me to go see my doctor, so that we could move forward with a normal life. We were about to sell our house, and I knew I couldn't let her do all the work, so I knew it was time to do something. I had been putting this off for about three years, and it was time to do something about it.
Life is normal now. Walking around our new neighborhood is great, and I have lost weight in the process. My surgeon was great and my follow-up appointments were great.
The fact that you can have your knee replaced with an artificial one and walk again is amazing. Thank you to my surgeon and thank you DePuy Synthes.
