Surely it will mean greater mobility for you and perhaps less pain?

Try to look at it that way.

Good luck on Wednesday

Had mine done many years ago, pain was pretty bad when the drugs wore off but now its fine, it does set off the alarms at the airport but they seem to enjoy searching me and I get a free prostate check

German hospitals being the money grabbing thieves they are, Probably recycled it and sold it to some 3rd world country

Not 3rd world ... they actually grind all the knees and hips down and turn it into "bone cement" ... don't worry its all checked and sterilised!

Good luck with the op ... my 86 yr old M-in-L has just had hers done last week. Gone from "couldn't stand due to constant pain" to "walking 100 yrds pain free" within 7 days (thats further than she's walked for years!).

What would you do without them your knees, your knees,
There's so much good about them, your knees, your knees,
Loose them and you'll wear a permenant frown,
You could stand up but you'll never sit down,
Or join in the knees up with old mother brown, without knees.


Though they may cause much laughter, your knees, your knees,
Make sure you always look after, your knees, your, knees,
Your legs would be pegged from your thigh to your heal,
I think that would give them a pretty rough deal,
How would you handstand oh how would you kneel
Without knees.

Well had my op 9 weeks ago. Total cock up has a cronic infection and has to come out in op 1 . Then no knee joint for min 6 weeks as they try to get rid of the infection. Hopefully they do and then another op to put another one in. Oh joy...
