Knee replacement

Postby Ofcmark » June 8th 2019, 6:43pm

Well I finally couldn’t take all the pain and the shots were not working so I had a knee replacement done last Monday. I am up and walking around the swelling is starting to go down. Been taking an Oxy every 4 to 6 hours which makes me very sleepy. I have another week of home physical therapy and then another two months of outpatient I figured I’d get it done now before retiring November

I know the feeling. Don't rush anything.

Good to hear you're on the mend, Mark. Like the rewstar says, take it easy and listen to your sawbones.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Dude, total knee replacement is some next level Jedi-like shit!

Technology has come SO far in the last 30 years.

Glad you are doing well. Keep up the therapy and get ready for the retirement.

Knee replacement recovery can be tough, but when it's done and you realize that you're free of that incessant, grinding arthritic pain, you'll feel 20 years younger! A smooth recovery to you, sir.

A business acquaintance went through one the beginning of this year, he was back walking the course golfing three months post surgery.
He told a co-worker whom is having one done next month to strictly adhere to the PT.

Hope all works well for you.

Just had a total hip replacement (anterior) the 1st of February. Like you said the pain just keeps building till you HAVE to do something. Back at work in 7 weeks. Everything is working great with NO restrictions.
You gonna be just fine. Hang tough Mark. :okk:
After all, no ham-wristed louts complained when all watches were 34mm - no cries of "looks like a little girl's watch on my wrist!" Like King Canute on the beach, that's where I draw the line - come what may.

No kidding I had the right knee done two years ago totally different experience this time I also think I have a more skilled surgeon in a far better hospital. At this time with my right knee the doctors were talking about putting me in a nursing home for follow up physical therapy. With my left knee been home since Monday and started physical therapy Tuesday

Feel better, Mark. In my circle I have a hip replacement and major foot sugery among my friends. It takes such patience and therapy to recover. You'll get there.
