hi I was a 51 year old woman with a busy job and 3 kids a dog 3 cats a husband who likes to white water raft hike etc and two really messed up knees. That was until July 5 2012 when I had both my knees totally replaced l am 3 days post op and I can walk without my walker to the bathroom and around my room and with the walker down pretty long hall to the pt room. Now I can't say that it doesn't hurt but I am so very happy I got them both done I was told oh you are too young well I finally said no I'm to young to watch everyone else have fun.soon I will be back in the raft and swimming with my husband kids and dog. My advice is go for ii two at a time is the way to go!View Thread
