I’ve spent most of my life on my feet working as a cashier, and it took a toll on my joints. At work, they let me sit on a stool when I needed, but eventually even sitting became painful. The pain was horrible. On a scale of one to ten, I’d say it was a 12. For seven years, I sought relief with pain pills and anti-inflammatory shots in my knee, but it just wasn’t getting any better. Finally, when it began to affect my work and my income, I decided to have a total joint replacement.

I had never had surgery in my entire life and I thought my leg was going to look ugly afterwards. But I have to say, I am thrilled. I love my new knee. It’s been six months since the surgery, and I am completely pain free in that knee. It works so well, I want it to have a “mate,” and will probably have my other knee new replaced in the near future.
