In 2013 I had bilateral knee replacement. I posted under the name Gazelle7777. I started my thread from just hours out of surgery through to months later during the healing process... ups and downs, good times and rough times..... All My threads are still up and you can just put Gazelle7777 in the search engine to find what I have shared. For some reason, I was not able to open up that account and had to start a new one. So I am now June Lands. Anyway, @Jamie You were here and so helpful that many years ago and I just wanted to check back and tell you how well I am doing! In 2014 and 2015 I had both hips replaced as well and have my hip replacement story here under Gazelle7777. I am a walking testimony of how joint replacement has changed my life and allows me to do all the things for years I never could do... and to be PAIN FREE. I do not even take an aspirin anymore. I do all my yard work and walk miles everyday. This website was my godsend so for any of you going through the process of preparing for or healing from surgury, this place will become your safe place. I remember many sleepless nights after surgury where I came here just to talk to others and feel such positive energy. I to this day direct those who plan to have joint surgery to this website to get all their information. I Wish all of you a wonderful joint replacement journey and hope that reading my journey for knees and hips will help you through.
