Although I didn't post during my recovery from my two knee replacements in 2010 and 2013, I have spent a lot of time reading about recoveries on BoneSmart since 2010. Back at the beginning of my knee journey I was concerned that I had lost my ability to play basketball forever. Through the information I gained here on the forum, extensive pre-surgery strengthening and a structured post-op exercise program, I was able to return to playing full court competitive basketball three times a week for 3 hours each session. Now at age 67 I decided I wanted to tell my recovery story and let people know that it is possible to return to an active lifestyle after knee replacement surgery! While I understand that not everyone wants to be as physically active as I am, I think for those of us who live this lifestyle, it is important to know there is hope that we can get a life back that includes physically demanding sports. My story of a return to full court competitive basketball was recently featured in a BoneSmart Spotlight article and I'm creating this thread to talk with anyone interested in my recovery details. I'm happy to share them with you and hopefully help others to a successful recovery. If you are reading this thread and haven't checked out my Spotlight story, I suggest you do that first. You'll find plenty of details there about how I did it. And then I'm ready to answer any questions my fellow BoneSmarties may have!
