Just a little status report

It is now three weeks and 5 days since the total knee replacement.
-The continuous passive motion machine went back on Nov 30... peaked at 100 degree bend... didn't need it anymore
-The surgical incision is almost 100% healed... no swelling... no redness or any signs of clotting
-Physical therapist just left... walking on a cane with no limp at all. Actually getting around the house without the cane most of the time
-Climbed the stairs today with full weight bearing on the surgical leg... a pretty major milestone
-Pain is almost non-existent at this point except when I get up from a low chair... something I couldn't do at all before the surgery
-Will be free to drive tomorrow (Dec 5)

I am thrilled with the results of this Knee replacement. If anyone is considering having one done, I would be happy to share what I have learned.

Good news is the right knee replacement was a complete success.. bad news is, the left knee is now in need of replacement. :( I don't have a surgery date yet, but it should be soon (very painful). When I have specific dates, I will post them so you will know how long I will be unavailable. The site remains in Brian's very capable hands.

Hope everything goes well. You've been through it once already, hopefully that makes the chances high that the second one will go just as smooth.
