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.

Hi Debbra,
Thank you for your reply. The pain in my knee is very manageable at this point. The pain is felt when I am sitting at my desk for a prolonged time or when I am asleep at night. Sometimes I have to get up and apply Ice when this happens.
I want to be out ahead of this and am being very conservative yet by the same token by proactive as well. Google Dr. Richard Berger in Chicago which will lead you to his website.
