Discussion: Knee Replacement
Had total right knee replacement Oct 31, 2006. Told doctor Iwould on the field in April. He said I could as long as I followed his instructions. I was back bowling in Jan 2007 and ot practicing in March. Played twice weekly starting in April and went to Reno R&R tournmaent, hit .954 and didn't use courtesy runner! No pain, swelling or other problem. Played 3rd, 1st and pitched and would have played outfield if necessary. Can't tell you the change in my life to be pain free and able to still play the game! I had the DePuy from Johnson and Johnson which should last for at least 15-20 years. I also have returned to golf and play twice a week without using a cart. Needless to say I am happy to have made the choice for replacement as I was also bone on bone. Only problem is the other knee needs replacing but told doc would not do it until end of season.
