Hi there. It's been a long while since I visited this community. Life has been pretty good, despite several issues I deal with . I've been totally in love with Zumba, and am in pretty darn good shape from it.
Unfortunately, my left knee has given up on me. Both knees are in bad shape; I've had 5 surgeries, 3 of them ACL reconstructions. I tore the lateral meniscus in my left knee in September. Despite physical therapy & a good knee brace, the pain finally drove me to visit an orthopedic surgeon. X-rays alone were enough to make it clear that it was time for a new knee. Bone on bone, bone spurs galore, and exam shows ACL is about totally gone again (third time in this knee) I'm 51 years old.
So, any words of wisdom? Advice or helpful hints for an easy & successful rehab from this trip to the hospital?
