Yes, I agree @TIC1015 . I’m sorry to hear about your friend. My 54 year old brother died suddenly and unexpectedly in January. It does change your perspective, doesn’t it.Good luck! I’ll keep you posted! Honestly, the first was a breeze compared to the second. I wished my doc would have done them together. It’s 7 months & still takes all my energy & a good nightly cry, most nights, just to get in bed. I’m praying for the day when nothing really hurts & I feel a little more stable! Most 90yo’s walk better than me & could beat me in a race!. But this too shall pass & it is all worth it!Hello @TIC1015 , I’m having both my knees replaced (in what they call ‘staged’ bilateral surgery - so one after the other, rather than both together) so I’ve read your posts with interest. I had the first done 5w1d ago and I’m having the second done in 2w2d. A lot of what you say resonates with me too: taking it slowly, weak hip and back muscles, depression… I’ll be watching your progress with interest. Best wishes!
I just lost a friend to cancer at 57. We are lucky!
