Re: Knee Replacement

Ignoring some of the levity offered by some, you have been given some good advice. My wife (who will turn 67) soon will need 2 new knees. The most recent advice the surgeon gave her is: If you are without pain, or it can be reasonably controlled, don't do the surgery (yet), and do proper exercise. We also have an acquaintance, in his 70s, who recently had 2 knees replaced (seperate procedures, of course) and has gone through convalescence. He is happy. And, I can testify to that, he walks fast, again. Good luck.
