"I'm So Glad I Didn't Wait Any Longer!"

My knee was very painful before I had joint replacement surgery. I struggled with lifting things, walking, and getting up and down. I was unable to sleep due to the pain. All of these issues led me to get my knee replaced.

Getting my knee replaced has changed my life. It has been a miracle every minute since I stepped on it after surgery. I had surgery on July 5, 2013, just 7 months after the pain began. I am so glad I didn't wait any longer.

Get a second opinion if you have to. Make sure to exercise every day after surgery.
