Had a total knee replacement week ago. Dr. Bryant from SCOR Orthopedic where I live did an excellent job. Recovery is going good so far. I think some of that is due to staying in good physical condition. At almost 70 I was going to the gym 3 -4 times a week before I ended up with bursitis and the option for me was the knee surgery. The only thing I feel would have helped more would have been to stretch my hamstrings regularly at the gym. If you are active like I was I found that at the first couple of therapy sessions that has been one of the more painful parts of it.
