In response to are the new knees better: yes and no. I wouldn't be walking at all without them, so that's good. I am not pain free and they still limit my mobility significantly - by the end of the day I can't take the dog a short walk :( Because I lived with pain for so long the nerves in my legs laid down pathways of pain - now almost any stimulus in my legs, my brain "hears" as pain, even gentle massage. I keep working to reprogram, but that's hard.
The weather is changing today so the pain level is higher. It's time for some perocet, I hate having to depend on drugs just to get through the day or night.
I am the summary of the choices I make.
