Bilateral knee replacement

Hi Everyone,

I am a 59 year old female, who is about 50 lbs overweight. I am to have both knees replaced April 4, 2013. My Dr. insists that his patients who had both replaced at the same time fair better than those who do one at a time. My left knee is the main problem but lately my right knee has been trying to catch up. I've read some of the posts about doing bilateral replacements. I guess it depends on you and how well your body heals and the type and amount of therapy you receive. If anyone is in the NYC area can you recommend a rehab that you think is really good? What type of pain relievers work best and anything else you can think of that may help.
Thank You
