It is nine weels and four days since North Shore Hospital gave me a Total Knee Replacement on my left knee.

So many people have this done these days, some more than once, it is easy to think there is nothing to it but it is a major event in your life.

While it is true that from time to time the pain seems bad it is better than it was for years with just bone on bone in my knee.

If you are contemplating one of these do not delay. And if there is one lesson you need in advance be sure to exercise the new one at least once a day. Do not get stuck at a desk or sitting around feeling sorry for yourself. Your new knee needs all the work it can get.
