    Good luck. Not had major surgery like you have, but I was out of action for over a year after being diagnosed with Leukaemia. A total of six months and two days in hospital during which I had four courses of chemo therapy, and something like eight months recovery after I was discharged. Total remission now but there is a little 'thing' called Chemo Fatigue that will be with me for the rest of my life.. it's a total pain in the ass but I try not to let it get in the way of anything I want to do.. Hope your return to work is smooth and event free.

    Glad you are getting back to work.

    I am glad to hear that you are doing good enough to go back to work. Hopefully all the changes that they made while you were gone will be good ones !

They should be taught that their presumed victim is more dangerous than they are. This is not a matter of weapons, but of will."

    As an aircraft mechanic I think you should use your new knee
    to kick an engineer.

    Otherwise glad to hear you are back in service.

    Wow, hope all goes well. My dad had both knees replaced quite few years ago (15+) and his job kept him on his feet (walking) all day long. He was able to go back without any issues and is still not having any knee problems. Ease in to it and you should be just fine.

    We NEED you to get back to work. The elderly guys on here need you (and I) to make their Social Security payments!

    Thankfully you are in remission and hopefully you can build up strength to over come the C Fatigue. Not long ago that terrible disease lead to a painful end. Godspeed.

    How do you feel with your new hardware? Did it alter your gait? Are you pain free? Have you been active enough to endure the rigors of a work week without getting exhausted?
    I hope all goes well for you.
