Wishin you the best of luck, Spec!  

From my dad's prior experience with the same thing... if you keep on top of that physical therapy, the new ones will be better than the old!

I'm pulling for you too Spec.  Bad knees are no fun at all.  Follow you doctors orders and like speckmisser said, the new ones will be better than the original.

Best of luck. I'll keep you in my prayers. Follow the docs orders and you should do fine. I know several people who have undergone knee replacement and they all turned out great.

Good luck to you, Spec. Be thinking about you...

By the way, have them put in some "zerk" fittings while they're in there. They get a little squeaky - just give um a shot of silicone....:smile-yellow:

Good luck Spec.  Be sure to get into rehab.  Any questions about rehab just send me a message.  Hope you don't plan on flying, those new knees will send everyone at the security check point into a frenzy.:skeered:

Good luck spec. My Dad had this same operation 2 years ago and he is doing good on his new knees. The only thing he can't do is kneel so he just rolls over to get up or down.

Look out  Spec's going to get the doctor to put in bionic knees so nobody will be able to beat him to his favorite spot.Probably have some attachment that will turn them into moto ducks.Spinning knees the new thing.
Good luck, everyone I've had contact with thats gone thru the operation has done well.

I was at the doctor yesterday and here is what I found out !! I will be under for about 4 hours then about 3 hours in recovery they will put drains in both knees for 3 0r 4 days after they are done to collect blood if I bleed alot it will be put back in me along with the other 2 pints that I have already given ! They say there is a alot of pain and to ask for the drugs alot !!LOL!! never figured I would like drugs !! I will be in Vallejo Kaiser for about 5 days after the operation and back on my feet  without crutches in 6 or 7 weeks !! Say a Prayer for Spec I will need a few with this!!
