Yes Dennis.. there were a few guys in the Rehab hospital when I was there that had both knees done at the same time.. I tip my hat to them.. having been through it no way I would recommend doing both at once but each to their own I guess..
I was offered to have an epidural and not go fully under anaesthetic but having watched a video of what they were going to do.. there was no way I wanted to be even partially awake when it was being done...lol
Keep us up to date.. a couple of pics just so you know what it all looks like in the first week or so :)

The last one was after 2 weeks when the dressing came off.. no external stitches or staples.. some new dressing and glue combination.. half my scar is almost invisible now.. I do have some numbness on the outside of the knee but it is slowly coming back.. :)

Good Luck with it its just 9 weeks now since I had my hip replacement done. and the difference is great. Gone is the sickening grinding pain.I can now walk further than I have done for years. Cant get my leg over yet, but it will come. Exercise, Exercise, now off for a walk to the pub. ;)

Hi Andy, just want to say thank you for starting this thread as it has reassured me no end, after a few years of a problem knee and one failed op I go in on Wednesday for a new knee and having read all the comments on here I am a lot happier about it. Take the painkillers and do the exercises seems to be the key !

Cheers

Dennis
Good luck Dennis
