Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I can understand your anxiety, never mind the statistics, it's your body! But I've seen from the comments quite a number of cuties had the same operation(s) and are doing well, that must be some consolation. Get well and running soon!

by iris2006 18 Mar 2009

Best wishes and a speedy recovery. Hope to see you back soon Gramsbear. You are in my thoughts.

Judy God SPECIALIZES in "SPEEDY RECOVERY" Is there ANYTHING too HARD for the LORD? Be BLESSED and VICTORIOUS in claiming your healing in JESUS NAME it is so ;D *2U

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I know exactly how you are feeling - I am due to have a knee replacement at the end of the year. I managed to put it off for the summer although it's painful to walk. Everyone I have spoken to has been pleased that they had the operation so just keep that in mind and I will keep you in my prayers. Love, Jo

by marjialexa Moderator 18 Mar 2009

Oh, Judy, God bless you mightily! I hope you get through the surgery and physical therapy in good shape. My girlfriend had this surgery in January one year, and in April we were walking all over the beaches & markets of Nassau, which she could not have done before. But she was very diligent about the therapy, so make sure you do that. Love, Marji

by uscmom 18 Mar 2009

good luck with your surgery and make sure that no matter how tough the physical therapy seems, it is for your own good!!! Keep that in mind and you will be dancing in the aisles before long.

by memasanders 18 Mar 2009

You have all my prayers dear. Hope all turns out well. God Bless.

by jrob Moderator 18 Mar 2009

Judy, you have my prayers, no question. One of my dearest friends just had both knees done at once and she is doing really well. She said it was painful, but get up asap and get going like the dr. says.;)

by meganne 18 Mar 2009

Judy, Judy, Judy, Cary here just to tell you to keep a stiff upper lip and do as the Doctor tells you, There's a Good Girl!

And from Meg, just make sure you do the exercises and don't whimp out on them or you'll pay the price later. And I'll be praying for you to have a speedy recovery, which you will, if you do your exercises.
hugs n roses, Meganne

by shirlener88 18 Mar 2009

Judy, of coarse we understand your hesitation and worry - but we will be prayeing for you and waiting to here of your speedy recovery and when you update us - we will be so pleased to have you with us again. I will continue to pray for you - until I hear that you no longer need the prayers.

by dixie 18 Mar 2009

GOOD LUCK with the operation, I had a full knee replacement 2 years ago, I put if off for quite a while but it has proved the wrong thing. If it is left too long as it sometimes affects the hip and that is what has happened to me. I now have to have a hip replacement very soon. Make sure you do all the exercises regardless of the pain because it will help you get back on track much sooner.It will certainly be worth it in a few months time, no pain etc.
I will be thinking of you

by gerryvb 18 Mar 2009

Will be praying for you, starting now...Hugs and good luck.***

by gerryb 17 Mar 2009

Prayers are with you! You will do great AND be so surprised at the pain relief! I have both knees & hips replaced (am 65) and face a "reverse total shoulder" soon. Hit that pain button, don't be afraid to do so! Take a pill about 30 mins. before PT and work hard at PT! You'll do great. People are surprised when I tell them I've had all the replacements. Only thing that gives me away is all the alarms going off when I go thru security at the airport! If they don't put you on a "constant motion" machine, ask for it!! They are wonderful, relax you, bend the knee for you, and help a LOT!! Should be on it by the second day, probably. Hang in there!

by simplyrosie 17 Mar 2009

Prayers for you, the surgeon and the hospital staff. May GOD direct their hands and may you have a speady recovery.

I'm sure you'll do fine but will keep you in my prayers. MIL has had both knees replaced and is fit as a fiddle. Just make sure you do your physical therapy. It's the key to your optimum outcome. You'll be playing hopscotch in no time.

It sounds like is is all according to how much PT I am willing to keep up with, Hahaha! So, now I know, Keep on keepin on! Thanks...

by denice 17 Mar 2009

Judy, A friend of mine had had one knee done and will get the other done this year. She says is much happyer with the new knee than the old painfull one. She is actually looking forward to the next new knee. The only thing is the physio therapy you need to do after. Very important and hard work. Her therapist said if she had not worked at it so hard she would not have recouvered so well. Take care, it will go well.

Best of luck with your surgery. I have had both hips and both knees replaced within the last 7 years and I am doing great. I had a hip problem that was from birth but never caused me any problems until I turned 50. Lots of prayers and hugs to you. I am new to cutie and just getting started.
