Discussion: Knee replacement thoughts
I came here to post this question. I had right knee replaced eight weeks ago. I had to give up soft ball after 2005 season (I was in three leagues) due to the excessive bone on bone pain. A career change, insurance and life delayed surgery till this year. I'm 54.
I'm very encouraged at what I have read here. My thoughts on having it done:
Locate a surgeon who does a lot of procedures and minimize the amount of muscle that is cut. Let him know your expectations and select the right joint.
Attack the rehab with all you got, at every stage ask, what is the maximum I can do. but still listen to your body.
One thing I would do different, Prior to surgery I would work till I could easily touch my toes if not with my palms, and stretch my quads till I could hit my butt with my heel. Good Luck
