I'm new, too...
« on: October 21, 2005, 05:15:41 PM »
I can't believe I never found this website before!  I have had years of knee problems, and finally decided to get this thing fixed once and for all!!!  I had a LR on my left knee 11 years, but continued to have problems.  It's been 4 weeks since my TTT, and I've determined that the worst part of all this is the crutches!  PT is going great and I'm getting a lot of my range of motion back.  I'm looking forward to getting a lot of good information from all of you!

OA in both knees
