Got the call from the Orthopedic doctor's office and scheduled my knee replacement for 29 April.  Yea!  I'll limp through (see what I did there) a few more rounds of golf between now and then and then be sidelined for about 6 weeks or so.  Mixed emotions.  Sad that I'm going to miss some prime golf days but glad that I'll be able to play pain free again (well, at least from my knee).  I'll be living my golf vicariously through MGS and Golf Channel.  🙂

You will be glad you got it done.  I developed a few bad habits playing on a bum knee that I had to "unlearn".  The doc also said that if I had waited any longer, he would have had to do a bone graft.  One side of my knee is numb from cutting nerves, but it's not pain so all's good.

Oh, I know.  I was very glad when I had the left knee done 4 years ago.  I've been playing (limping) since January.  Doesn't hurt to swing, but hurts like hell to walk to the ball.  However, I know that I'm not firing off my right leg like I used to and not clearing my hips nearly as well as I should be.  So, after recovery, that'll be my goal to work towards.

I understand about the numb feeling .... left knee and shin still have little to no feeling even after 4 years.  Sort of like the last 30 minutes of novacaine wearing off 🙂
