    The Knee is on the Mend !

    Big improvement with the knee replacement still a bit painful and clicks a bit but it's getting there. Me and our Aud have been working on renovating an old Atlas metal lathe over the past couple of weeks just a bit of electrical work and we're done. I will post a few pics of it when it's finished but in the meantime here is one of my new knee

    They could have done some cosmetic surgery on the legs

    Glad to hear it is on the mend how long will it be before you can stand and do a little turning

    I'm getting about now mate without crutches and can stand ok. I have done a little bit of turning but can't do it for long periods. Me and the Mrs have been concentrating on doing up an Old lathe.

    Nice to see it's going well. Looks like a neat job. My knees are giving me some gype, how does one know when a replacement is required? I shudder at the thought.

    Hang on as long as you can mate. There are other treatments available which can help a lot. Mine were past the point of no return bone on bone so replacement was the only action
