Well back home now after having half of my left knee replaced.
I'd forgotten how much it hurt the first time :shock:
Hopefully be more mobile in about 6 weeks. Wearing a lovely
pair of compression stockings at the moment. I would post pictures
but I'll wait till the swelling goes down.
Fair play to te hospital, they do supply some pretty powerful drugs
to keep the pain under control ;)
Hope to make it to the Nano, but looking unlikely at the moment :(

Well done Dave it will be worth it in the end i am sure.

Pity you cant make the Nano as I understand that before a new knee is fully operational it has to be T4d to the leg !

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Good luck with the recovery, medics have told me that I am too young for a replacement at 72.

If you need anything at all let me know you know where I am andystephens24@aol.com and I will let you have my phone no.(just around the corner)

Damn my seceret life is out now.

"Good luck with the recovery, medics have told me that I am too young for a replacement at 72."

It helps to have Medical Insurance, it's all about money now unfortunately.
I was told I'm on the young side at 56 for the right one nearly 61 for the left one,
but I'd rather have one or two months of fairly intense pain than the constant aching
and intense pain when you knock it or twist your foot round.

Unfortunately the hospital dog had first dibbs, I've never seen a fitter dog :-o
Thanks for the offer Andy, but my wife likes to fuss.
She's thinking of having hers done in the New Year so I can look after her!

Getting better now, still swollen, looking forward to getting outside. Have to use two sticks still, but only for a few more days, then I should be able to get about with just the one. Can't wait to be able to pick up my new car at the end of the month :grin: good job it's an auto...just a taster
