Knee Replacement #2 Under 40 Knee replacement.
I had a good cry today. Just came home from the OS and while I known -- Have known my left knee was very bad since 2006 the past few months have been a struggle to control the pain. My quality of life has slowly been stolen from me the last few months. I get up and go to work.. Come home and my left knee is burning with pain all night with an intensity I have known only too well since 2005. My last round with Supartz injections have been nothing but a painful nightmare that totally has stopped me in my tracks. I had my right knee replaced when I was 36 and it looks like 2009 I will have my left knee replaced. I often find comfort knowing that this pain will be gone once the left knee is done. I have had such a positive first implant experience with the Zimmer Gender knee. I wouldnt think twice about having my left knee done. My right knee will be two years old Dec 5. Sometimes it is all a blur how my knees have fallen apart over the last few years. I guess I will just have to keep saying to myself .. One day my knees will be great.
My OS is most positive that my implants will get me a good 30 years.
