NO MORE KNEESLES!!!

Wed the 11th I got a whole new knee on the right side. I came home Saturday and already have a ROM of 90degrees. Pain is not too bad as long as I keep up on the vitamin V (Vicodin). Today it snowed AGAIN and the temp dropped from 32 to 24 in about a half hour. Hopefully I can get back on the straight and narrow by spring, probably around June. Gee, I love the north woods...

Did my right one a few years ago and the left is coming soon. I feel your pain, literally, but hang in and do the exercises. You'll be glad you did it. Here's praying for a fast recovery.

Thats great, I know you will be back to better than normal by June.
Maybe next year you will make the Quartzsite. I think you would really enjoy it.

As a nurse speaking, your range of motion is GREAT!! Keep it up--nothing worse than adhesions and poor ROM.

Hope you have a great recovery! I had my left knee replaced Dec.6th and am going back in May 1st for a little rework. I made it to 118 deg ROM but my joint is loose so they are going to install a thicker disk to take up the slack. Stay warm and no playing in the snow!

Way to go Navy. Did they install zerk fittings so you can shoot the grease to it if you start feeling a little "rusty".

There some lumps that may very well be hidden Zerks. Will see when they yank the staples. But entire leg, back and front one huge bruise just starting to show.

Well Dave; You can come down to Fiesta Key in mid May if you want to get out of the snow. But it mite be a bit early for travel. Hang in there Wis has 2 seasons , Winter and Const time so you are almost done with winter in 2 months , then they can tear up the rds from winter . Next winter come south. sailer

Dave, if you would have said something at the fall rally, I could have drilled a couple holes in your knee and put in zerk fittings. I bet that would have fixed you right up!

Stick with the therapy! It hurts, but it works.
