Long-term Update PKR
« on: April 25, 2015, 03:17:59 AM »
It's been years since I've posted any updates. I am 10 years post - op on a Depuy PKR. I own a tile install company. What I have found, through years of pain, is my knee hurts much less now because i constantly strengthen my leg muscles.

Regarding my experience (in my opinion),  my longevity has been attributed to leg muscle strength.

Wanted to add that i am currently 44 years old. Had the PKR done in 2005, while I was in law enforcement.
