“I was to the point where after I had arthroscopic knee surgery, my knee declined really fast, where I couldn’t walk. Even to just walk through the grocery store was extremely painful and difficult. I had to stop 8-10 times just to rest because it hurt so much. Basically I got to the point where I couldn’t walk.

With my new knee I noticed the incision is much smaller than my previous knee replacement surgery, the recovery was much quicker, and I was home within three days. I was off crutches the third day I was home. I was at the gym doing my own therapy about 10 days after I got home. I was feeling that I was probably 75% back within three months, and 100% back at six months.

I would probably say the first week of therapy was the most painful part of it, but after that the pain continued to get less and less, week by week, more of a discomfort rather pain. I work out regularly now. I do elliptical machines, legs, and I water skied this summer. I skied better than I did my entire life, and I have been water skiing for 20 years. I now have zero pain with walking, skiing, exercising, and I have my confidence back. I don’t even think that my knee has been replaced. I would say if people are in a lot of pain and having trouble their daily routines, I wouldn’t hesitate to tell them to have this procedure done. It can change your life from not being able to do the things you want to be able to doing them even better.”
