During the past 11 months I have had 3 knee surgeries and I’m unable to even walk to the mail box. After my first 2 surgeries my knee was getting worse and not better. So I kept asking around town for referrals. Finally, on my 3rd opinion I received an excellent description of the problem with a recommendation for a total knee replacement. My hospital stay was anything but pleasant. I am happy to have my husband, children and friends by my side with each step to recovery. I am waiting for the day I am pain free and able to live life once again.
