Well I finally went beyond the VA to get my knee fixed. After being told by the VA for 6 years, you need a replacement but you are overweight so we cannot do it, I finally went to my local doctor and told her what was going on. She suggested a local surgeon to see and within 2 weeks I am scheduled to have A total left knee replacement on Jan 11, 2012. I am very excited and scared about having this surgery but I know it will be for the best in the long run. My 4 grandchildren mean the world to me and I want to enjoy their growing up years. I want to be able to play with them and to go to zoos' with them and not have to sit down every 10 feet.
Life is finally looking better and I will be able to lose weight once I can actually move around again.
