Any of you old Geezers have a knee replacement?????

Well it looks like I'm having a knee replacement scheduled for January 23. Any of you older geezers been through this?
Kind of anxious and excited to have this done.
The doc said I was a perfect candidate for a partial in my right knee.
Bone on bone, but my left knee hurts worse? But it has more cartilage in it ? Surely some of you old guys have been through this?

I'd be a bit anxious, as well. But keep in mind that the docs do this every day, and they know what they're doing. You'll be back tap dancing in no time.

Who the heck are you calling an old geezer???

I haven't had it done yet, I've had both knees scoped and get injections when the pain gets bad in the right one. I was fitted for an orthopedic brace on my right knee.

Yup, both knees done at the same time. Partials in both. I was back to work in 5 weeks and 3 days(but, at that time, I had a desk job). They're way better than the OEM knees but aren't the 22 year old knees I was hoping for. I still have pain but not like before and I can walk 7-8 miles per day and stand for 8 hours at a time so they are better. Most folks I talk to don't have any pain after rehab.

All I know is that getting down on the concrete floor of my garage is much more painful and time consuming than it has ever been. I have sprained my left knee twice, both times chasing my kids around and cutting fast but was able to rehab with exercises in a few weeks.

I hope your knee replacement goes well. Ask them about the model you would be getting, what the break-in looks like, and make sure to read the manual and clean and lube it before you hit the trail.
How much time and real effort are you dedicating to the people and causes you truly care about?

And be sure to do all the rehab you are told to do. ALL of it. If you get lazy you will lose mobility (my observation of my Dad and step father) Do exactly as you are told for as long as they tell you.
