I want to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers. I'm back at home and awaiting start of PT this week. Everything went well. Doc even straightened out my old bowed leg in the process. If anyone is looking for a great surgeon, I know one. I'll be tinkering on tractors again before Christmas

Hope you get back on your feet soon. Almost everyone I know who has had knee replacement tells me they wish they would have done it sooner. However you're making me squeamish! LOL. I see the knee doc on Wed. Feels like someone's stabbing a knife in it every time I walk with the left one. The scoping three months ago didn't do much good and he warned me it might not work. He told me what the next step might be and that step involves making it look about like yours does in the pic. Jim

Hey that looks familier!! Hope you get along good at rehab again DO WHAT THEY TELL YOU!! A friend of mine didnt and she had to go back into surgery and have her leg "manipulated" which means they bent it way back under her butt and then she had to start rehab all over, Kenny.

Don't hurry on the tinkering, listen to what the doctor and therapist tell you.

I am trying to get all my work done before I have shoulder surgery. It looks like it will be a while after that before I am wrenching anything.

When they rebuilt my kneecap I had an incision about that long, but they stapled it. Best therapy I found was raking hay with the super M, doc wanted to know what they had me doing. "Raking hay, lost my insurance".

You will need to do a lot of work yourself along with re-hab . I got a large rubber-plastic ball at WallMart for 2.50 put it between my kneesto build up the muscles realy helped along with some wts around the ankle. Therapy people said i did good they are great but you need to do a lot yourself. I was walking a week later slow but i could walk without walker. Good luck and work hard speeds up recovery. Check with your ins co to see how long they pay for therapy so they dont cut you off from treatments. My ins co said they didnt care how long they just wanted me fixed and thanked me for bieng a customer.

Yep good old pain and torture and yes that is how you will feel BTDT many time and when I had knee surgery at least my knee did not look that bad but I had that orthroscopic (sp) type and yes did the PT thing. Just take it easy and do as the doctor says you should/can do and nothing more or you will pay for in

Welcome back. Best practice is what the "thera-pest" recommends, Jim

Watch out for the physical terrorists at rehab.
