Re: Bad Knee

Okay, here's mine, hope the deal works to make the images bigger, so you can compare the stapling: two different people did it.

NB: this was after bilateral knee revision surgery: the bilateral knee replacement had been done about a year and a half before.

Re: Bad Knee

63 year old male, I had a Bilat TKR at the end of Nov. Home on boat after 5 days in hospital, took almost no pain relief because it made me lazy and not wanting to exercise, just put up with a bit of pain when walking 2 to 5 km per day. Now just a bit stiff on arising, but find kneeling very strange, not painful but strange, because of modified sensation in skin on knees. Before op I was just about crippled, now almost back to normal; one of the best decisions I have ever made!!!

Re: Bad Knee

I'm starting to think that sailing and bad knees are related

Quite sexy Miss Ann!

After the initial op and working the joints, the difference is amazing in mobility. Nothing is ever the same but it sure beats the inabilty to move and suffer the associated discomfort.

Re: Bad Knee

Bruce, I know what you mean about strange sensation when kneeling. I used a towel or piece of foam, when I remember, and that makes it more comfortable. By now, I've pretty much forgotten and do not notice much strange sensation.
It is a tad harder crawling into, or I should say, out of those tight places and I no longer fit into a ship's trunk. Small price to pay.

So sorry to hear that your first surgery only got you a year and a half. Unacceptable! Did you ask some serious questions about that?
