Get it as soon as you can.

The sooner you get it done, the sooner you are done with the pain.

Absolutely no advantage in waiting.

Quoted from KornFreak28:Did you have one done?

A few months before the pandemic, I drove a friend from church to be admitted for surgery.

He's a plumber, and in his 40s. Because he is young, they did both knees at once, and made him an inch taller (not kidding).

The paperwork he got from the hospital said that there was a 10% chance of needing a second replacement, if he lived another 20 years.

The data was all from replacements done way back in the 90s, so obviously the current knees are better made than those antiques.

So with the new technology of current knees, probably less than a 10% chance of needing another replacement seems like great odds to be pain free.

Even if it was 20%, I'd take those odds, lol

Quoted from jayhawkai:

I think the more surprising piece of information is that The Tall Man goes to church.

If the man upstairs can forgive me for all the monstrous things I've done, he'll forgive ANYBODY....

Glad to hear that! Did he regain his full range of motion?

I've been on the other side of the world, but last time we zoomed, he said he was doing great

I'll ask for specifics next time
