    I take it that you meant to post "looks GOOD" not "looks GOO".

    Hope all mends well and fast. I'll slip a couple of prayers your direction.

    Now don't go changing your spelling or my post won't make any sense.

    Good wishes for a full and speedy recovery!! Follow the Dr. and therapists instructions to the tee. DO NOT push past what they tell you can do. My best friend thought he knew better because he had minimal pain and ended up damaging the bone and required graft surgery to fix. They took one of his ribs to rebuild the bone....
    May 2020 find you safe, happy and healthy!

    Don't let the physical therapist push you to hard, you know how you feel. They have a tendency to push too hard. I am 5 1/2 months post total hip replacement, had the home health care nurse, physical therapist and occupational therapist come to the house twice a week for the first 4 weeks, the physical therapist at times wanted to push too hard to where the pain would actually set me back. Yes you have to move and exercise the new joint just don't over do it. Good luck with your recovery.

    At first I thought this thread was meant for the two word game thread . . .

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    Good job! I've had both knees done. Make sure you do the rehab and force yourself to do all the exercises! Do you know what knee type/make you got? Mine are Stryker Traithlon full knees. I can now run 47.8mph and have a 17 foot vertical leap!! Although when I jump over a fence its in slow motion.

    Hope your recovery & rehab go well.

    Ditto that advice. My dad had both replaced quite a few years ago and was back walking his rounds in no time. Another family friend's mother had one replaced and did not follow the medico's instructions and was miserable for months. I still don't know if she is to where she should be. Of course, these are all anecdotes and your mileage may vary.
