Sun, Mar 31 6:34pm · After knee replacement surgery in Joint Replacements

My injection was an osteoarthritis treatment done by Dr. Berger in Chicago. He inflected the needle right in the tendon. Eventually he will do quad sparing TKR surgery on me when I can't tolerate the pain. Not there yet.

I was diagnosed with bone on bone in my right knee last October after an injection in December I am confident I can put off TKR surgery for another year. My BMI is normal and I am the fittest 66 year old male in the gym.

Yes Debra you are correct. I was going to have it this month, however; after meeting with my surgeon we mutually agreed to hold of and see how it feels in 6 months or so. He gave me an injection and right now I am pain free.

That is so inspiring. I am a 65 years young male and looking at a TKR this summer. My surgeon gave me an injection and said I have good range of motion in the knee even though I am bone on bone. No pain right now and working out in the gym and doing low impact P90X. My last 5k was in October wherer I placed 2nd in my age bracket with a sub 30 minute time. Since then I have put my running shoes on the shelf and hope for a comeback this time next year after surgery. Fingers crossed.

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.

Nov 18, 2018 · My Knee Replacement Surgery Experience in Joint Replacements

My recent X-ray shows no cushion and just bone on bone on the inside of my right knee. I am 65 and very active. Yesterday in fact I placed second in a 5k race finishing in 30 minutes. Be that as it may the knee problem all started 48 years ago with a high school football injury having cartledge removed from the inside of my right knee. The chickens have now come home to roost. I am scheduled to go to Chicago next week and meet with a surgeon who performs minimum invasive knee replacement surgery sparing the quad muscle.
Recovery time is cut in half. I am optimistic that my consultation next goes wee and that I move forward with the surgery.

Nov 10, 2017 · Video Q&A about Smoking Cessation and Lung Cancer Screening in Lung Health

I am a 45 year old male who smokes cigarettes to the point of being tobacco dependent. My attitude is not to quit smoking so I am letting the chips fall where they may. What statistical data is available on how long I have to live while smoking?
