Mako Robotic Arm TKR Two Months

@saeternes, @contentandwell : I failed to repeat (JK may remember early posts) or to mention that I ended up with a clicking knee joint. Each step I take, it makes a barely audible sound, and definitely a clicking sensation. So there goes the impossibility of it ever being normal. Also, this is not an unknown or very unusual side effect of TKR. 😕

@ellerbracke I do remember that. I guess that happens sometimes, it did not happen with either of my knees and they are not the same brand. I had a boss who had a clicking hip and they told him they did a recall on it and said they would replace it. He said no, he would rather live with the clicking than have another surgery. I think I agree with him, especially since the clicking is not very audible to other people.
I guess I am pretty content with both of my knees, the L one, done in 10.17 more than the right done about 4 or 5 years earlier. I would love to be able to kneel but it is what it is. I can manage it somewhat with a pillow under my knees.
