Hi folks, it's many moons since I was last with you. In fact I'm surprised I'm still a member. I'm delighted to see Josephine keeping you all in order. You were all an amazing help in the past. Any road up (I'm from Yorkshire), it must be getting on for 15 years since my left knee had a full replacement, and it has been, and continues to be, a brilliant success. It's still the best joint in my body!! Recovery was very uneventful. My other knee is now shot, and it looks like I''m going to get the full set. The first knee was a total replacement, but this one might well be a partial replacement in the medial compartment. Can I expect a partial replacement do be different regarding recovery time etc? I have lots of holidays to fit in, driving my caravan around Britain, and lots of dogs to walk.
