~ Knee Replacement ~
Hi all ….. About 6 years ago I had a knee replacement. For some reason it didn't work out and even though the doctor tried everything from extracting fluid to injecting some other material … nothing helped. So about a year later I had a revision. That worked much better. I still have trouble with it though when I get out of a chair …. that's when I can feel the ache. Also, when it rains, my knee is a great barometer. Now the other knee is acting up and I'm dealing with it with Motrin when it's more sore …. and this is another barometer too. I've decided that if I ever have to have the other one done, which may be, I'm going back to the doctor who did the first one. He is in Frederick, MD, and I moved to Stanton, VA 4 years ago. The doctor that did the surgery is the best one in the whole area up there (Frederick is outside of D.C.), and I'm familiar with his methods. And, I loved the rehab. place where I went. So, we'll see what happens …… I know my kids won't be happy if I go up there (my 2 girls live down here and my son is in Alexandria, VA., but it's my body.
So we'll see what happens in the future.
