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.
