    As an update the Doctor released me for full duty on Thursday the 16th. I returned to work Friday. My knee was at 113 degrees also on Friday. I plan to work until October 4th and then take my 5 weeks vacation and then retire.

    Glad you are well! Sounds like a good plan, too!

    Local orthopedics is my 2nd home... had so many procedures done, pinched nerves fixed, shots, etc. that I changed my email to steveaustin.

    The Doctor told me typical life is 15 years. However if the knee is monitored properly they can simply replace the "plastic" wear strips which is minor. But if it wears into the metal then they have to do a total replacement. The therapy is critical as others have said. The goal is 120 degrees and I'm pushing to attain that. The Doctor also said expect good days and not so good days for the next 6 months until everything is basically where it will be. Understandably this is a significant surgery so it takes time for everything to recover. Good luck if you go forward with yours Ken.

    Don't take this as "fact." My right elbow has a life expectancy of 15 years also. Got 41+ years on it right now. Unfortunately, eight year old knees need some tuning up.

    As I recall, you need 120 degrees to rise from a chair without pus Hong off. You are close!
