    26 year old having partial knee replacement surgery on Monday
    Aqhagirl posted:
    I'm 26 as my topic says and I'm having partial knee replacement surgery done on Monday. It could end up being total it just depends how bad it is once he gets in there. Eventually my left knee will have to be done to but the right one keeps getting worse so something had to be done soon. I'm in so much pain right now on good days I can walk with braces but bad days I'm lucky if I can walk even a little with crutches. I love to exercise so this is very hard for me. Some good days I'm able to slowly walk a few miles on my treadmill but bad days it's none at all. I just wondered what ill be able to do after surgery. How long do I need to wait before I can walk a little again? Will I ever be able to run or ride my horse again? I can't do either right now. My mom has had both her knees replaced but she still has pain problems and it's been like 7 yrs at least. Am I still going to have pain? I wondered also if any other young people have had this done? I could really use some positive stories I'm scared.
