Custom PFR questions!
« on: April 01, 2014, 03:11:36 PM »
Recently learned I need a PFR, starting with my right knee, but also needing same on left...many years of knee problems starting in the late 80's when I had lateral releases which included quad reductions (generous)...3 fai hip surgery in the last 10 yrs...and now 2 knee caps that are shot... My OS uses the KineMed custom prosthesis and claims they are much more successful than the "off the shelf" models...I can't seem to get info from anyone about activity level once rehabbed.

I want to be able to downhill ski (in WI, we don't have mountains, it's low key) and inline skate/hike with my daughter and dogs...Does anyone have experience with the custom PFR???  I am 43 years old, and still desperate to be active...

I understand that after this op I may not be in control of my activity level...just looking for some feedback from people who have the custom PFR, or any PFR!!!!  I am not close to needing a TKR, thankfully....

Thanks!
