So bottom line it for us. How much are you considering this knee surgery/replacement....................or, not at all? Moms needs a knee surgery/replacement but she is afraid of all that crap so she is hobbling around horribly avoiding the surgery. It all sucks pretty bad.
It boils down to how long I can stand the pain.
Next on the list is steroid injections.
I need to get to a point in my work schedule where I can afford a couple of months off.
Unfortunately, this will mean a severe cutback in my charitable contributions!
The other problem with inserting a new knee sooner rather than later, is that it will probably wear out by the age of 55 and I'll need a second one at that time.
