A year ago today I got a new knee. I was promised “pain relief, increased mobility, and better quality of life,” and I can say, I think I got all that.
I was also told that maintenance is a lifelong commitment. You know — use it or lose it!
I’ve taken that advice pretty seriously. We walk twice a day. I do yoga most every day and
several times a week we hike or bike a good distance. My knee does just fine.
The mechanical part still clicks annoyingly at times. Sometimes a burning pain keeps me awake at night. But all in all, I’m very happy with the outcome and hope it lasts the rest of my life!
