    When I had both knees replaced each time the Dr. put an X on the knee to be replaced when he talked to me right before surgery.
    Before they push the first "cc" of relaxer or anesthetic, a nurse came in and engaged the wife and me in a protracted conversation about which joint was to be replaced.
    When she left, at the site of the incision, one shoulder was marked "sey", the other marked "on". (depending on your point of view! LOL!)
    After surgery, the surgeon had perfectly dissected the "sey"!

    Bhr, messed up my hip in 1991. I didn't have it replaced, just repaired.
    in 2005, I was sitting in a rocking chair and realized there was NO WAY I could sit that my hip didn't hurt!
    Remember the show, "The Real McCoy's"?
    Remember how Walter Brennan who played "Grandpappy Amos" gimped around. All bent over, pumping his elbows for balance?
    That was me! Every step was painful. I was in pain sitting, standing or laying down.
    In May of 2005, I had my left hip replaced. If you didn't know, you'd never suspect I have a prosthetic hip.
    Surgery, recovery and rehab was excruciating, but well worth every pain and twinge.

    Sarge - Wishing you the best of luck with the surgery.
    I had my right knee replaced 13 years ago, and was very glad I did it.
    If it had been my left knee, I could have resumed driving right away because the right leg does all the footwork in driving.

    LMBO! Yes sir!

    Last Monday, the therapist was manipulating my shoulder.
    He began feeling the muscles and commented that one muscle was extremely "tight".
    "This will hurt, but we've got to loosen that muscle."
    "Okay." I said.
    Then he began trying to shove his thumb between my ribs!
    Fat boy like to have come up off the table!!!!!
    MAN that hurt! Not only that, he did it about 20 times! Me gritting my teeth the entire time!
    An hour later at home, I reached to turn a light switch off and realized it was now a painless effort!
    Before bedtime, I discovered about half a dozen movements that were no longer "AS" painful!
    Wednesday, he repeated the same procedure. STILL hurt like hell, but I was rewarded with increased range of motion!

    If this is your first, the physical "terrorist" (LOL!) is your best friend.

    I wish you the best on your upcoming surgery Sarge. Sorry to hear you have to miss deer season but it will be worth it. I've had both my knees replaced and it is good to be able to walk without pain again.
