I had both knees done at once and would never recommend it to anyone. The biggest mistake of my life. 7 months later my knees feel like a tight band around them is keeping me from doing simple moves and causing great pain. I'm told it is scar tissue just give it time. So my question is what can you do for scar tissue? Will it dissolve or always be with me. Is there a way to break it loose?View Thread
I had double knee surgery 7 months ago. It was the biggest mistake I have ever made. I thought it would cut my time in half but it more than doubled it. You are helpless without a good leg to stand on. I did all the exercises and more, went to therapy. I can now walk without pain but I have a tight band around both knees struggle to get up and down. Anything more than walking is still very painful. I feel if I had had only 1 knee done I would now be ready for the second one. I am 69 but very active and was forced to give up so much that I opted for both knees. I am afraid that I will never ride my horse again.View Thread
