    Re: Hi I just wanted to let you guys know

    Hi, Lisa !
    I went through complete knee replacement last fall. Bone on bone in both knees. I am so angry at myself that I put it off for so many years & suffered with pain & missed out on so many occassions because I couldn't keep up. I lost 20 pounds before the surgery & that made a world of difference in my recovery. Look at the bright side.... you are young ... therefore will recover faster, you are a candidate for the surgery .... some are not or have no insurance coverage, you probably have family & friends who will help you during recovery and you will have a mini vacation to read, sew, etc.. GO FOR IT !!!!!!!!!!!

    Lisa, I'm so sorry you need to have this done, but from what the other gals are saying, it'll be an improvement for you. Hang in there!

    Lisa, I too need a knee replacement in the future. I was in a car accident 15 years ago and my knee got wedged up against the dash. But they keep telling me I am too young (51). I can live with it the way it is for now. After many, many surgeries I don't look forward to any more.

    Take care,
    Monique

    Hi do not despair I had total need replacement a year ago (3/2010) I am doing well. The key is to do your therepy after surgery. At present I am preparing for my second total knee replacement in June. I'm looking forward to it so my the pain will be gone. My diagnosis sounds the sam as yours. Keep the faith and continue to pray and have a positive attitude. Be blessed.

    Oh, that's not good news - but I know after my Dad had his knee replacement he felt like a new guy. Key to recovery is doing the therapy!

    All the best to you. It is always tough losing weight but tougher when your knee is bad. Keep the faith and good luck.

    Do not dispair. My second cousin had a full knee replacement at 90 and is doing just fine. She is 97 now!

    Lisa, so sorry you have to go through this. I too know many people who have been very successful with knee replacements. Now stop this talk about ending up in a wheelchair. You'll come through this just fine. Beside, you can still sew in a wheelchair. You sound like a real upbeat gal who will make the best out of any situation. Don't forget, you'll come out on top!

    Hugs,

    Ugh! Mom has had the Synvisc stuff injected in there to help lube up the bone on bone rubbing. She says it helps some. She's up for a knee replacement soon too.
    Glad to hear that your new knees are working so well Sandy.
