9 weeks ago today I received my second total knee replacement. The first one was 7 months previous. Today I can walk pain free for a considerable distance. It is a life changing experience and means that my place between the rock and a hard place has opened up for me! After being in pain and on high strength pain killers for years....about 11 altogether....I can't believe my luck! Now I can exercise and start to get my weight under control. I have an induction at my local gym on Wednesday and can't wait to get started....ask your GP about exercise on prescription. Watch this space for further updates. Good luck everyone.
