I am going in for complete knee replacement surgery on Monday February 13, 2017. The hell of this knee pain is just too much to take most of the time. It will be at St. Josephs Hospital in Toronto and they are very well known for being among the very best in this field. I will be in for three full days at the hospital and then it will be a long haul towards rehab before i am 100%. I have done all the preliminary stuff leading up the the surgery in the last two months and now it is on. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this surgery and what their experiences were, good or bad. One of the hardest things is not being able to drive for 4-6 weeks, before it is safe to do so. Wish me luck guys, i hope it all goes well. Cheers. George

Best of luck George! My sister-in-law had the surgery a number of years ago with no problems at all. They sure don't keep people in the hospital very long these days not that it is place to be for very long. Had to get much sleep with all the racket. Keep us posted on how it is going once you are home.

I'm sure all will go well George. Don't have to drive the car to feel it.Can remember as a kid 11 or 12 just sitting behind the wheel of my first car, made me feel good!If missing it, pull the car out of the garage and sit in it. At least it will help with withdrawals from driving and you don't get any dents/dings sitting in the driveway! Will be waiting for an update . All the best. Jim
All the best George.

Wish you all the best George I had two done by the age of 23 because of sport that was 22 years ago now has not stopped me doing anything and these procedures have come along way since then much less trauma just don't rush your recovery the more you look after it in the beginning and follow your rehab plan to the letter the better your long term mobility will be, speedy recovery mate

I got in Thursday morning and so far it is nothing but pure hell. Even responding right now is one of the most hardest things to do.

Up date as of Tuesday February 28, 2017. Saw my surgeon today and all is well and according to plan. No issues, just regular PAIN. Old fashion rehab (exercise) is my life now at home. As of tomorrow i start professional rehab at the hospital twice a week for a month. I am staying positive and focused and look forward to driving in the next two weeks. Cheers. George
