I am home recovering from knee replacement surgery. The surgery was Sept 7, then some time in the nursing home. Now I am home and having Physical Therapy two days a week at home. I can't wait to be be able to drive.

    The PT will hurt but is needed to get the mussels and tendons back.

    Best of luck with the recovery!

    Every one I know who has had a knee replacement has said it was one of the best things they have had done. So, I hope yours works out just as well. Good luck, and do the therapy!

    Have a neighbor that had a hip replacement a few months back and the way she is walking you can't even tell.

    I am sure you will do well. Speedy recovery
