Well I just got out of the hospital again from "Knee Replacement #2". My Orthopaedic Doc said that my right knee was even far worse and far more ate up than my left knee that I also just got replaced recently back in Jan, 29, 2014 of this year. I wouldn't wish this on a really bad enemy. I was just getting over the other one and then the right knee got to hurting so bad they had to use high powered pain killers just to keep me from going over the edge mentally. But I'm now on the mend and back here at Spyderville again to resume my duties.
Not looking for sympathy at all>> but I am trying to forewarn anyone that you don't take this surgery lightly because it's not for the faint of heart and I know that many out of the "baby boomer" generation will be faced with knee & hip replacements unfortunately. The physical therapy has been nothing short of a "Stephen King" created monster to say the least. The old Commander Cody song with the lyrics "HAVING TOO MUCH FUN" really came back to haunt me because I certainly didn't take good care of my knees in my younger days and now my enemies and detractors are grinning with glee.
Well I'm glad to be back here at Spyderville and if anyone can tell me any tips about how to minimize this extremely aggravating pain I'm all ears. So I'm going to try to focus on the new Spyderco stones and also revamping my "wish list" and "gotta have" lists as well. Sure have caught up on my sharpening chores as I sit in this recliner for hours at a time. I can't even imagine what many of these retired pro football and rugby players are going to face "surgery wise" going down the road but it surely can't be good. On the mend and back at Spyderville again!!! Any tips on how to mend up will be highly appreciated.
