Default knee replacement surgery

I got a new left knee on Jan 3rd and I was back at work grooming in 3 1/2 weeks. I was nervous over nothing. I worried how my 5 dogs would be...if they were gonna knock me over or jump up on my sore leg while in bed. I worried about cleaning poop in the yard. I worried about cooking for them. All was a waste of worries. Everything went smoothly and I will be able to walk em and go back to handling classes. The knee is super strong and they can jump up on my lap and everything. Im glad I did it. Next knee is one year from now.

Glad to know all is getting back to normal! I know that you are glad for the freedom a new knee can give. I have had patients have that surgery and know just how much a difference that it can make. Blessings!

That is wonderful. I would worry too with five dogs to care for. A couple of months ago I fell down about five or six stairs and I now realize how I took my knees for granted. This will have such a great impact on your day to day life. I am so glad you are a fast healer and from your results your doctor must be amazing. I am sure you will be a lot more confident when it is time for the next one.

That's great! Everybody I know who has had a knee or hip replacement has generally declared that they don't know why they waited as long as they did to do it since they feel so much better after.

I'm glad you recover fast from this. Knee stuff makes me nervous too.

Default knee replacement surgery

Your scar looks great for how recent the surgery was. Congrats on the quick recovery.
