@artscaping Dear Chris!!! As one who can identify with you on every level here, from knees to age to babies, I can only tell you that I had second knee done 5 weeks after the first, six years ago, and in 4 weeks I “graduated” from therapy with flying colors. Both knees are pain free and neither one has to carry the weight for the other. I can’t advise you, And you don’t need a reminder that we are all different. But one thing I might add is that you don’t need total 100% recovery to get back to doing what you love. Just ask yourself if a month postop would be better than what you are living with now and that might help you with your decision. Best wishes, Nancy

Wow, my dear Nancy…..you have done it. I see what you are saying. I was comparing this to my prior life and thought I had to get back to walking 10 miles in the sand every day. Thank you so much. Yesterday I had the knee drained again and was told to get ready for surgery. I will explore the surgeon's plan for this knee when I return from Texas. Until then, I am just going to be TuTu.
