Hope it turns out well for you Mike. I think you need a deck of cards, a board, and one of those big vacuum bottles, the kind with a pump. Because I'm thinking you're going to be spending a lot of time in a chair, so if you put the board over the arms you can play solitaire. The vacuum bottle is for coffee, and with the pump, you don't have to worry about picking it up. Remember, no pictures, it didn't happen. Have fun.

Did you offer to cut the replacement parts on your CNC?

Hope all goes well! Give us an update when you're able.

Best of luck with a speedy recovery. They’ve got that down to a science now Mike. My buddies dad went to the US for both knee replacements. He was supposed to wait 6-8 weeks before the second one, but it went so well he did it 2 weeks later

If all goes well, I will be going home tomorrow - one day, in and out!

@ JOAT - I have Solitaire on my PC, and chair to sit in, so I am good. And my sweetie will be by my side at my beckoning call.

Yes sir, I will. I had the left one replaced in 2007, so I am familiar with the therapy. Everyone keeps saying the technology has come a long ways, so I am hoping for the best.

Good luck, Mike.

My Wifes neice just had both knees done at the same time.

No general anesthetic, and talked to the surgeons during the op.....
