New knee

Withy is to get a new knee on May 14th. Currently I am walking almost normally so anyone seeing me would wonder why. I do myself, actually. However I am assured that at any time the knee could lock, as it did a fortnight before we were due to go to Teneriffe.
When I finally got to the hip man for my first hip, he said he did not know how I managed to walk. Yes, I had quite a lot of pain but I could walk without a stick. He said that I had a very high pain threshold. That must mean that I do not feel pain until it is quite severe. Once I am aware of it, I am dreadful Embarassed

Ivy's Avatar Good luck and there is no rule that you need to be in agony before you get the op done. My MIL had her first hip replacement after years of agony and didn't wait as long with the other hip, guess what recovery time was quicker. sending healing vies from the 14th xxx

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar From the sounds of it it is a good thing you are getting the new knee now - suspect if it got left by the time you were in a lot of pain things would have seriously deteriorated . . . and then having to wait weeks for the op would be too much . . .
