This time has gone better than the other knee.  4 years later and they've done big improvements.  Was only in hospital overnight (4 days, last time).  Had a nerve block medicine pump attached that provided pain relief directly into the nerves, blocking a good portion of the pain.  That ended yesterday.  Only negative thing about that is that, in addition to blocking pain, it blocked muscle response.  Having hard time triggering muscle action to lift leg....didn't see that last time.  Anyway, had first PT today and all went well.  Still painful, just like last time 🙂

My father had his second TKR 3 years ago, his first replacement failed after 22 years. He was walking with no cane within 2 weeks of the operation, and 4 months later was golfing on par 3 courses with my son & I. I hope your recovery goes quickly and easily!

I was golfing after 6 weeks after knee replacement 4 years ago.  I suspect the same will be true of this rehab. Thanks for your words!

My wife has been in the photographic business for over 40 years.  While she is an excellent photographer, she doesn't like photographing anything that talks back at her.  She actually prefers being a "lab rat" and has owned her own photo lab for 22 years.  Today she told me that she is selling the business.
Ten years ago she got a call from a local school district that they wanted her to take over for a H.S. photography teacher that quit 2 weeks before school started.  It was at an alternative H.S.  She taught in the mornings and ran her business in the afternoons.  After the first two weeks of teaching, she decided to run her classroom as a business where the students were her employees and their grade was their paycheck.  She got them to dress better, learn how to interact with others professionally, and encouraged them to strive to be better.  The kids loved it.
Based on what she did in the classroom, she started a non-profit foundation to teach kids employability skills because when she took over that classroom, they all needed it.  Doing all three things were too much, so she gave up the teaching after 5 years.  Now that she is selling the photo lab, she can focus on the non-profit.  Much of what she does is speak to local charitable organizations about grants, as well as to local businesses to support her program through job-shadowing opportunities while kids complete her program.

Thanks for sharing her great story about teaching practical skills. Care to share a link to her non profit.

My urologist was FINALLY able to get my kidney stone out! Woo-HOO! Never felt pain that bad! Good gracious. Ouch! Two trips to the ER, and two tries to grab it and it finally is out. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone....

Congrats!!! Those things are the WORST. I churn them out every 2-3 years. It’s terrible.

I could tell you a story that would make a kidney stone pale in comparison...but, there's women and children around and breakfasts to keep down.

It involves another area of the anatomy, surgery and more painful than child birth.

Anyway, congrats on being pain free!

Yep, definitely no fun at all. Had a few myself over the years. Glad you're feeling better.

I wouldn't wish that pain on my worst enemy.  Enjoy your freedom 🙂

A guy that has been playing with us for a couple years broke 80 for the first time today. He was happy, and we were happy for him.

My beautiful daughter on prom night. 1237CFBD-4C05-40E5-B750-B9495346C796.thumb.jpeg.0ca79e84b462720bb1fb400fee262ca3.jpeg

Wait until you see her in a wedding dress. That will make the ductworks open up
