Re: Torn Meniscus Anyone?

Your story is so like mine - after the surgery for a meniscus tear I went from bad to worse as it was just bone on bone. I had a tkr last March and am living a full pain free life again. I still have some swelling and tiredness, but what a difference from my life 12 months ago! I am gardening again, am spending this summer (today the hottest day so far this summer - feel sorry for you all with your bad winter at the moment) on our boat and working full time, on my feet all day.

It took me a long time to come to terms with having a tkr, but am so glad I did.
