It can be discouraging to read of the quick or even "normal" recoveries of others when your recovery is only offering up challenge after challenge for you. It's important to know that even a longer-than-normal or more difficult recovery from knee replacement surgery can still result in a successful outcome!! It can! Over the years, we've had members who went through a difficult recovery - some taking two or more years - only to emerge on the other side with a functioning knee. Once these folks do recover, they go on about their lives and their story becomes lost in the history of BoneSmart. In this thread, the staff will pull stories from members' recovery threads, shorten them a bit for easier reading, and present them here so those of you who are experiencing problems can see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
