Knee Replacement

Well, finally stopped procrastinating and going in on July 9TH. to have my right knee replaced.
Barring no complications with recovery it will put me right in time to be ready for Archery.

Joe -- A friend's dad had it done and was playing tennis again in a few months. The doc also said he was doing 2 or 3 other replacements THAT DAY. It's crazy how far medical advancements have come.

My dad gave up a vertical bow for a crossbow years ago because his shoulder was a mess. He just had it replaced last week and he's holding out faint hope of being able to use a compound again.

I switched to a Crossbow last season as well for the same reason. Was a tough decision at the time but I love the Archery season
and I won't look back ,general rule for the knee recovery is 12 weeks max so that puts right in the zone
for the opener.

TY
I had the left knee replaced in 2008, had some complications and that's why I waited so long to have the right one done.
The left knee is not like new (has limitations) but I am virtually pain free.

My Dad has both of his knees done...I will echo 59Willys and stress the rehab part of the recovery.

Good luck with the surgery, the rehab, and the archery season!

Your a old pro at this That was my big concern, Getting range of motion back. At rehab one guy had to go back under and 3 big goons bend his leg back and forth At first, Mine was so bad when i stood up I be on my toes. I had my wife sit on my knee 3-4 times a day! thank God she only weighs 110 lbs. worked

Joe -

Are you getting a full knew replacement, or a partial replacement? The full knee replacement can be brutal and my dad was off of his feet for a good while after his was done. The partial replacement? I saw a lady who was back to work just 7 weeks after hers was done and looked completely fine.

Either way, best of luck in recovery and getting back out there this season.
