I’m still climbing trees and dragging deer. As long as the Dr. does his job, the most important thing for you to do is have the right attitude.
    You are my idol. I had both knees, both shoulder and some back issues but no hips, thank god. Like 06roadking said, listen to your doctor and keep pushing.

    Good Luc

    You got this brother. Try to drop some weight first, less wear on the knees and joints.

    Keep us posted.
    Best of luck

    One of my assistant managers is 300+ also. He also has underlying other medical issues that makes him high risk for surgeries but he had both knees done and is doing well. No knee pain. But he never lost any weight and he ended up needing surgery on his feet and toes because of carrying that extra weight. Doc thinks he may have been over compensating for his knees causing the damage to his feet/toes. I also have several customers who have had knees done and are doing well. One is still rehabbing but is up there in age and not recovering as quick as others have. Good luck. Let us know how you make out.

    I had one done two years ago. I had no trouble and very little pain except during physical therapy. Thy only time I took pain killer was right before the PT and that was recommended by the therapist.

    Take the physical therapy seriously. It is the most important aspect of the procedure.

    After its done you'll be asking yourself why you waited so long.

    Good luck!
