    I am out of action for awhile. I have become the $6 92 cent man 2 new knees. Titanium coated stainless steel knees with nolathane bushes courtesy of Stryker Here's hoping the knees are as good as the heads lol
    Just doing doing some research to see who has the recommended lubricant. So far it seems the best I can find is Jim And Pete's

    They should have shaved your whole leg(s) it would have looked way smoother :eek::p

    Good luck with that healing!

    Dang Kiwi, hate to see this. Get better soon, your SRT Chariot awaits her master's return. What is that stuff in the jar, real honey, or some kind of salve?

    " be kind to your knee's , you'll miss them when they are gone"

    I have better ones now but apparently heavier. They are Stryker #8 the biggest they make.
    Getting around pretty good now. No rush tho with sick pay and holidays I don't go back to work until end of July

    The best thing you can do for your knees is switch to an automatic. :p

    You will confuse your fit-bit device when you start running at freeway speeds when those new knees break in.

    I just stagger around. I look like I am ready for the old folks home hahaha
    They ain't getting me yet.
    I can get about in the house with no crutches. When we go walkies I take them for safety. In the next few days it will become a hiking stick. The exercise bike is also going to happen this week as I almost get full rotation of pedals. So things are going well. Very tiring tho. I have at least 2 extra sleeps during the day. The Surgeon is very happy and so is the Physio.

    Knee surgery might not as satisfying as a boob job (for either the host or the benefactor), but it will be nice to be able to do the simple stuff again.

    Hang in there, time is what cha' need.
