    all the best 3.jpg Lmarshall, much luck tomorrow. It'll be a bit tough for a couple of weeks, but it will be more than worth it. And you will LOVE you straight legs---I really recommend taking pictures today---you will forget how bad it was without something to compare---and showing them, others will be amazed at what knee replacement can do besides eliminating pain. I'll be looking for your first post from the "other side".

    Thank you Bottomshollow, I will be taking some pics of my legs and my walking tonight. Hoping to get a video library done if they let me in the hospital.

    Don't Be Ashamed Approx 8.5 million people in UK and 27 million people in USA are suffering by this condition. This disease increase over the time and cannot be cured. Some therapies can only control the condition and help with regular pain. Therapies can keep the patient active but cannot cure the disease entirely. Hands, knees, joints, back and neck are the parts of the body that are affected in this disease.
