right knee -- hard date to forget -- 12/24/07 -- yup, that was my Christmas present! Truely it is the best thing I've done (well, besides losing weight SP and adopting a healthier lifestyle).

I was 53 and thought I was just too young for a joint replacement, but clearly my body told me differently.

The left knee is also problematic with osteoarthritis, but haven't had it done YET as with my weight loss, I have absolutely NO problems with it. I wouldn't hesitate, though, when and if it becomes a problem.

I found I had pain in the soft tissue for almost 2 years. It just slowly went away till one day I noticed I didn't have any pain.

I had a knee replacement 13 months ago. I find that I have plenty of movement and virtually no pain in the joint itself, however I still have difficulty with weakness and pain in the soft tissue surrounding the joint. I want to get the weight off my body to relieve some of the ache. Anyone else have a similar issue?

I had a total knee replacement done on Nov 30th 2009. The best thing I have ever done!!! I waited 17 years to find a dr that would take a chance as I do have a disease in my leg.

After ten days I was walking with no walker or cane after 17 years. I am doing so great now that the dr has to keep telling me to slow down...Merri

Right Hip! 50 yrs. old! Best thing I did. I like to walk, some tapes, and machines (winter). I'm trying to be consistent but... I won't give up. I'm back at it starting today. No more excuses. emoticon Wish you the best!

No, thank you.
Here's hoping that my new lifestyle, losing weight, and exercise helps me avoid either.
