Hi All, Last December I had a left THR and it has been amazing. But the left knee has actually bothered me for several years. I had physical therapy on it about 3 years ago but was told it didn't need any intervention at that time. Now, once my hip was done my surgeon took a look at the knee...no cartilage left. The bones also want to shift and not stay in proper alignment. When it does that, it's pretty painful. But the joint itself is more stiff and cranky rather than the screaming pain the hip had. The doctor said let's see how I did this summer and then decide when to move forward. I have a lot of trouble going downstairs and skipped some tours of ruins this summer where I knew there wouldn't have been a rail. Going downhill, especially on gravel or uneven ground I won't tackle without my walking sticks. So I'm leaning to moving forward with this and get myself repaired so I can engage more fully in fun stuff while I'm young enough and strong enough to do it. I don't want to lose ground, just because of a cranky knee. Any thoughts or experiences????
