Well it's about time I posted something since it's been about a year and a half since the last one. I've broken the 70 barrier ( age that is and not golf ) and now I'm officially 71 as of late January. Last August I had both my knees replaced via TKR or total knee replacement surgery in Billings, Montana. Now 10 months out I'm doing great and feeling no pain whatsoever and am doing all the activities I did prior to surgery. The surgeon recommended that I have both of done at the same time since I was in pretty good physical shape after months of working out in preparation for the expected procedure. Although my knees look like something out of a Frankenstein movie with 8 inch scares they really feel good The photo was taken 2 days after surgery, I know it looks scary but they healed up just fine. The rehab was a bit of an ordeal but thanks to a great physical therapist and some dedication on my part I was feeling pretty good by 5 months out. We're back in Montana now for the remainder of the summer and I look forward to walking my favorite golf course till we leave again at the end of October.
