Charlotte Barlow – Total Knee Replacement

IMG_1869

I am getting my second complete knee replacement in two months. The first replacement has left me without that scared feeling of “will it work or will it fail”. The first knee replacement has made me stronger in everything I do. For the first year, I could tell the difference in strength on a regular basis. Sometimes I wonder if I could wear my new knee out from using it so much, so I’m getting the other knee replaced to match. I never thought I would squat down to pick up something again instead of using my back to lift all the time. The first time, I was amazed was when I could reach all the way under my kitchen sink to shut the valve so I could fix a dripping faucet. The list of improvements could go on and on.
