betty2
Mornin KG walking is getting more difficult for me but I do try and keep on the move as much as I can bear it. My problem is the knee keeps locking and when this happens the pain is terrible. Yesterday I ventured into town for a wee shoppin trip, and I suffered dearly for my escapade . Think I overdone the walking a bit too much
My daughters friend husband had the op last friday and he is home already and doing well. Still in crutches tho but thats to be expected.

ALll I want is to get back on the go again canny take tae this livin in the slow lane. JIST NO ME rolleyes.gif
betty2
Have to get back to playin housewife hoover is winkin at me Have a nice day all
Elma
Betty, when my Hoover winks at me I just wink back and say, "See you tomorrow." laugh.gif
Elma
Keelie and Betty, my friend has had two knee replacements, a year apart, and is walking really well now and has no pain. It has made such a difference in her life as she was in constant pain before the ops. Another friend had one done just over a week ago and is home and trying to do too much already, we all think he is heading for trouble as he should be waiting for it to heal properly first before walking without his walker. I think it's the macho thing, of course he's a man!!!!!!!!! ohmy.gif
maryhillgal
He's a man - says it all eh Elma. laugh.gif
betty2
Hi all
have,nt heard any bad reports on knee replacements, I certainly am waiting [not to patiently] for word from the hospital, I,ll put up with any discomfort or pain of the op. Its natural that there will be these factors to deal with. But with all the pain and discomfort which I,m enduring at present , this op. cant come quick enough for me. what I canny fathom is the ones that have been told they cant have the op because of their age [too young] I know of one in particular who has been told this and he,s is only 40 and he suffers as much as I do.

Elma the hoover likes its wee walk rolleyes.gif just like walking the dog, a task which can be a nuisance but has to be done rolleyes.gif
betty2
Well after another night wae nae sleep am gonny hit the sack an hope that sleep comes even if only fur a wee while. Need it tae charge ma batteries sad.gif
maryhillgal
I hope you get some sleep Betty. I am just about to go back to my bed as I have been awake since 4.00 a.m. with pains in my hips. Sweet dreams!

Betty, I have to have replacements in both knees and was told in my mid-forties that I would have to wait until I am 60. I have asked time and time again if they could do it sooner but was told that the reason I had to wait was that they would wear out too soon on a younger person and surgeons don't like to do this op. more than once because, unlike a hip op, the parts for the knee replacement are glued to the bone. When it comes to removing them to re-do the op, they have to hammer and chip the old replacement off the bone which could result in damaging the bone and infection might set in, this could mean losing your leg.

I've just turned 60 and now I am worried about having the op. done because a friend has had a bad experience, he went private and he caught an infection and nearly lost his leg. He has the same surgeon as me only I will be having it done on the NHS but this has worried me a bit......although I know loads of folk who have had successful knee replacements and are urging me to go ahead with it.
betty2
Thanks Avril for filling me in on that score. Dont be put off by youre friends bad experience guess there are occasions when things dont work out as planned , but thankfully in the case of knee replacements they are few and far between.

I cant wait to have it done just cant get used to living at this slow pace Thiking positive is what is getting me by
betty2

Isobel
Hey guy having another busy day painting. Just been reading a few posts here while having my lunch. Betty my brother in law has had two knees two hips ,knuckles replaced . I have to tell you he is doing great.So you just keep that positive attitude. The only think I would say is don't get two done together. One of Jim's pals had both knees done at the same time ,big mistake he has had lots of problems.
betty2
One at a time is enough for me Isobel, Bein positive is what,s keeping me going , but its the waiting game, I know I wont have the op before I go on holiday in june , but hoping it will be arranged when I get back from vegas
