I've just cut the grass. It was not a a happy experience and I am now lying on my sun lounger with both knees throbbing. The left one.. I.e. not the one already slated for replacement..is much more painful at present and an XRay yesterday confirmed that it too is buggered.  Not that I'm complaining you understand...I'm known for not complaining...:rolleyes:

Phil. We were walking through a market a couple of years ago and a woman was pushing a stroller with a big brown hen in it.

Careful Phil, you'll be up before the beak.!

Must say though, I've often seen pushchairs with dogs in.

Talking of knees Col, my neighbour has recently had a knee replacement on her right knee, the whole works, ball and socket!

I can't believe how quickly she's recovered. She says it's still sore, especially at night, but not the pain that she had before.

Another neighbour had the replacement but she did not follow the medical advice or the physiotherapists. She is still hobbling around on sticks, years later.

Hope you soon get yours sorted out soon Col.

Yep.. that's what I'm getting on the right knee.. though I don't know when.  It's not quite a ball and socket and the more I read about the knee joint the more complicated it looks.  But a surgeon I spoke to a few weeks back said:  "We cut the front of your knee open.. top to bottom.  Then we shove your knee cap to one side.. cut off the end of the femur (thigh bone) and fibula (main leg bone) , glue new ends on both.. put a plastic pad between the two , put your knee cap back in place and sew you back up."

Seems fair enough to me... :wacko:

 

And yes.. a lot of people have told me that following advice and physio etc., after.. is essential.

I'll do whatever it takes to get back to being able to walk again.  I cannot believe how things have deteriorated in a few months.

 

As for the other knee.. I'll just have to see what the surgeon advises.

 

In other news.  My Tomatoes, Green Beans, Radishes, Beetroot, Cucumbers, Spuds and Kale are all coming along nicely. :)

I may branch out next year and try more exotic stuff.  I'm also thinking of giving over part of my lawn to a raised veggie bed.

 

As that cantankerous old sod Churchill said:  'Keep buggering on...'

Absolutely essential to do just as you’re instructed Col.  My husband had a total knee replacement a few years ago.  He did the physio and was supplied with an ice contraption that he wrapped around his knee several times a day to reduce the swelling and help the healing process.  He recovered really well and clocks up at least 4-5 miles a day, bit of an obsession really but thankfully he doesn’t expect me to walk every day with him.  A knee replacement is far more complicated than hip replacement.  My Dad had both operations but wasn’t strict enough with his physio (he’d got nobody encouraging him) and neither operations were a great success.

Best of luck to you Col. My neighbour is very proud of her 'war wound.' The staff had her standing the same day (morning op) and walking the day after. I think she was in hospital about 4 days and when she came home she couldn't wait to show me the scar and staples. That was at the front, top to bottom. She doing marvellously now.

My missus said to me, "That's the only other woman's leg you're going to look at sunshine"!

@DJ360  I liked the surgeon’s description of the knee op, but just one point …. It’s the tibia, not the fibula which is the main lower leg bone!   But as long as the surgeon is competent (he will be) and you follow all his instructions for aftercare, I feel sure you will then thankfully be pain free and able to walk wherever you choose and for however long you want.
