@contentandwell : just saw your post about bilateral hip bursitis. From previous posts, you certainly had more than your share of problems. I really hope that cortisone shots will help you, especially since you seem to be the poster child (woman) of really successful TKR’s,
with an impressive exercise routine (at any age)!.

Thanks @ellerbracke My big concern now is what am I doing at the gym that is probably the cause of this. I am fearful it might be the elliptical, which I think is such great exercise. I had been doing the treadmill but I can't get my heart rate up where I want it to be on that and I can on the elliptical. The other gym things I do on equipment are primarily upper body so I am sure they are not the problem, and I have been doing my water aerobics and jogging for years at this point so I doubt that is the problem.

I must admit, I do feel extremely fortunate that my TKRs were both as successful as they were, even though the flex is not where I would like it. I think if I had read all I have read since my last TKR I may have been much more apprehensive about it, but sometimes ignorance is bliss.

It's funny you comment on my share of problems because I considered myself to be pretty darned healthy but these days seeing how many problems I can relate to on Connect I realize I have more problems than I thought! I do not have any of the problems though that some people have that give them pain daily, so I am very thankful about that.
