Re: After TKR, is walking "fluid" again?

Thank you Glenn.

I am also mid-50's. The surgeon I went to for the initial exam said he wanted me to wait 5 years. I have decided to go to another surgeon and have it asap. On the one hand, I hate having to do this. But I am bone one bone and can't imagine losing the next 5 years of my life waiting. In many other ways, I've "waited" my life away. I'm done with that now. I have lost several friends in the past 2 years and one brother, none of them over 60. And these were not high risk people, but healthy and happy people who were fine one day and gone the next. So not waiting. I hope I feel as you do next year this time. I'd love to have my mobility back.
