My Knee Replacement Surgery Experience

My recent X-ray shows no cushion and just bone on bone on the inside of my right knee. I am 65 and very active. Yesterday in fact I placed second in a 5k race finishing in 30 minutes. Be that as it may the knee problem all started 48 years ago with a high school football injury having cartledge removed from the inside of my right knee. The chickens have now come home to roost. I am scheduled to go to Chicago next week and meet with a surgeon who performs minimum invasive knee replacement surgery sparing the quad muscle.
Recovery time is cut in half. I am optimistic that my consultation next goes wee and that I move forward with the surgery.

Hi @santi – I'm very interested in the minimally invasive technique you describe that cuts recovery time in half. I'd like to read about it if you have a link to share. I am in the process of scheduling my second TKR at Mayo Jacksonville. And Congratulations on your 5K! Personally, I can't imagine doing a 5K in 30 minutes with my sad knee. In fact we have a 5K Pink Up the Pace to benefit breast cancer research and I was proud to walk it in an hour last month!! Is your knee in a lot of pain? I'm just curious what led you to decide this is the time to do it.
