  • got me some new metal

    well i'm 6 weeks out of surgery, had a total knee replacement. now i got a metal arm and a metal knee joint. if you have never had a knee replacement please take very good care of the ones you were born with because this is one heck of a thing to deal with. one thing for sure if i need to test my pin pointer in the field all i have to do is get it close to me and it starts singing.

    That is a tough ordeal I am sure. I hope you begin feeling better.

        Hey Toc - My wife had both her knees replaced and I know she had major issues with the rehab. I remember they had her up and on her leg the very first day after surgery. Hope all's well with you. How are you doing with the rehab? Hang in there because it does get better. Wishing you all the best.

          they had me up the next day, i had a late surgery. the doc told me it would be hard because of all the trauma i had in the past. i started the rehab right off but couldn't do much. it took me a couple weeks to get to 95, a couple weeks later i made it to 120 with help, but in the last week i can't do much more than 90. i will be off for another 6 to 8 weeks till i get back to sort of normal. i sure been missing the rock hunting and swinging. now deer season is fixing to be wide open and i got to get my freezer filled, dang good thing my son still lives at home. bad as one knee is i can't imagine dealing with both, women seem to deal with pain a lot better than men.

        Well that is not the metal I was hoping to see posted here.I am glad that you are one the mend and your sense of humor is still intact.

        I myself have been dealing with bad knees all summer, however mine should not require replacement.
