I'm 56 going on on 15! I agree with "I got hit by a car" - you are as old as you feel! Me, I prefer a wee bit more years on what I feel - a well built man of 35 - 40 years old sounds fine by me  ;)

I will be 60 in June. (gulp)  Having a birthday definitely beats NOT having a birthday. :)

Had my TKR a week ago today. I continue to say that Percoset is my friend.   Susan

I turned 17 almost a month ago. My AP US History teacher asked me if I felt any older... I told him I've felt like a 80 y/o person for a couple years now...
7.22.2004: horseback riding accident :(
5.9.2008: scope + plica removal on left knee.
12.16.2008: de-plica-tize my right knee.
3.14.2011: lateral release + medial plication on left knee.


It's great to be a Tennessee Vol!!!!

I am 42, my knees feel like they are 80+.  I am often told I look a lot younger (which is a good thing).  I did get carded at the liquor store a few months back.  My husband asked me if the clerk had his glasses on  ;D

I took my first breath of air 40 years ago. My knees feels around 140 (that is how old theoreticaly they could become apparently?), From fellow skiers, out of breath after climbing up a mountain and looking down a 45 degree slope they have never faced before all sort of weird come out, not one of my collegues this last winter season guessed I was over 32 though! My mum thinks I am either 101 or 13 depending on how she feels. My husband thinks I am a cute 21 - guess I blinded him on the day we met and he hasn't recovered yet. The surgeon thought I had remarkably young knees. On a bad day I agree with my mum - either which way! ;)
