I can walk without a limp!
The doctor's incision technique does not cut up the front of the knee cap.
He did a 6-7" half moom shape incision off to the side of my patella.
That promoted greater range of motion and feels very natural not restrictive.
When I bend I do not feel it and you can hardly see it.
Do not have to see him for another 3 yrs!!


It has totally changed my life!
Way to go Judy. Glad your still on the straight and narrow.
Like you my surgery changed my life. I was almost in a wheelchair it hurt so bad and still cranking out work at the shop.
It's been like 3 years since mine and like others have said the miracles they can perform are amazing.
I have been there and I know what people go through and to hear successfully stories makes me happy. I'm blessed with a second chance and I'm taking advantage of it......

My cousin had a complete knee replacement 11 weeks before the 4th of July.

He was boating and climbing the torturous 137 steps up the hill from the boat dock on the 4th.

Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing ...

Thank you! You had knee troubles too right?
I think I remember reading about it.
I hope if I have it right your knees are doing better.

Yeah it was the weirdest feeling for they make you walk on it and climb steps a day after the surgery.
I know all I wanted to do was ride my motorcycle.
The PT thought that was funny for not many ask that I guess
Thanks again for the kind words!
