I live

Got a total knee replacement 6/ went ok. I got a spinal instead of a general anaesthetic so I got to hear the saw...but that's the only thing i remember...they had me full of happy drugs.

Today the nurse said i was her star patient...walked about 10 yards with a walker...further than one expects.

Very hard to touch type with a blood oxygen probe on L index finger so i'll keep this short...many thnaks to all the well-wishers...will post here a bit when things improve.

I'm glad to hear you're doing well. That doesn't sound fun at all. Might be in the future for me, but I'll stave it off as long as possible!

Glad to hear things went well, and 10 yards at this early state in the game is awesome. :)

Glad to hear that the surgery went well. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery. Let us know if you need anything at all.
