All the best, I wish you a quick recovery, I'm going to have my other (2nd) knee done in Jan/Feb.
Had first one done March 2009 when I was 56.

I had both hips replaced, the only prob is, I now have very limited movement in both, but mine were both damaged when I came off a M/bike 40 years earlier (front tyre blowout) and had pins and plates fitted both sides.

Ops done in 2000. Ist one I was out of hosp in 9 days, 2nd one out in 6 days but had to have some stitches redone as they pulled out..

The good news is they no longer give me any pain.. Yayy.. :)

I think they have done away with the old method of doing it through the side and leaving 10 inch scars, I think they do a sort of keyhole op now that is quicker, and does less damage, so recovery is faster. :)

Get well soon innit.. :)

Well they released me yesterday tea time so only in for 3 days or so. Still got the big scar though. Good news is they've lengthened the leg somewhat as it was always shorter than the right, seems very odd. Reckon around 12 weeks recovery though so may be off work sometime. Oh well.

Thanks for support chaps.
