Re: Knee Replacement

My wife had TKR ~ 7 years ago; as many have said, the rehab is very tough, but she is certainly better and has less pain. Mobility? Enough. We were sailing Sunday.

She also has a co-worker that had TKN and has been fighting infection for 9 months (parts out, several antibiotic inserts...). He still does not have the final repair in place and the infection still simmers. Active guy. Not trying to be negative, but it is a serious matter, not like a motor rebuild. I have a gimpy knee to, and it makes me pause.
(when asked how he reached the starting holds on a difficult rock climbing problem that clearly favored taller climbers - he was perhaps 5'5")

"Well, I just climb up to them."
