@johnbishop– John, I have many friends including a 91 year old mother of a dear friend who has had knee replacement and in many cases both were done at different times and although they all had varying degrees of pain, all have told me that they were so glad they went ahead with the surgery. I would also recommend getting several opinions about different Orthopedic surgeons because I know there are some very good ones out there as well as not so good. One friend kept putting it off and that ended up causing a major hip problem as he began to walk in a way that he was compensating for the pain in his knee. In the end he had both knees done as well as a new hip over a 2 year period. The other key thing that all said was to make sure you kept up with the PT and in some cases loose some weight.
All my best to you! Jim@thankful
