Now to the patience part. He made me repeat after him " I have had a very extensive, very complicated revision and it may take a long time to completely recover "
I love this guy!
I can feel your frustration with the slow process. The good news is it sounds like you're in good hands and if you take it slow you will get a good end result.

I do feel like I'm in good hands and it truly makes a difference. The slow part ...

It does feel like forever! I occupied myself with Christmas shopping on line, then when things started coming in I set up a wrapping station where I could elevate my leg so I could wrap whenever I had the energy. It's wasn't enough to fill the day, but allowed me to make a schedule of sorts. After 32 years of teaching I was used to having a routine or schedule for my day which helped the days not drag on.
Your OS sounds like a caring, understanding Doctor. He's a keeper.

That is so funny because a few hours ago I did exactly that - set up a wrapping station and wrapped a whole bunch of gifts with tape and wrap on one side of my stack of pillows and gifts on the other ! Amazing how anything different is exciting - but also how tiring everything is. But today was a better day and I'm grateful for that

Hi all. I've been busy with life stuff as have we all I suspect but wanted to drop by with some positive news for a change. For whatever reasons, my knee has finally decided it's time to start healing. I'm rather suddenly able to walk much farther with very little discomfort and almost never any pain. I suspect starting an NSAID has helped a lot ( though my tummy isn't so happy...) but I really think somehow it's just time. And I have to say it looks like I've joined the @Josephine club... because I have had virtually no physio and have magically achieved and maintained ROM of 120/0 for almost 3 months. Next is strengthening and since I'm off to the south tomorrow it will be the pool and stationery bike for me. So, looking forward to a new era and wishing all a happy holiday and happy, healthy New Year !

Well, that's so very kind of you to say that and I am delighted. I am presently putting together a list of people who have benefited from the 'BoneSmart' method as I want to deliver a paper at the BOA conference next year!

@Randi , I've merged your new thread with you old thread, so there's some sort of explanation as to why the 2015 thread has been resurrected. I hope that's OK with you.

Do let us know when you have a surgery date for your second knee, won't you?
