Prune juice . Drink prune juice , about a quarter of a cup's worth , daily . It will soften things up .

Maybe go ahead and shave the left side, too? smile009.gif

If I had the time and energy I'd shave it all! If I had the money I'd do the laser hair removal. I could be described as 'furry'. ?

You reckon the weight of all that hair will unbalance him and throw his hip out?

Did you know Joe Namath had three bad knees? His left knee, his right knee, and his hiney. smile002.gif

That's bad...?

Oh yeah. That's awful. I took 2 stool softeners and a cascara sagrada capsule ever day to keep regular until I weaned myself off of the narcotics. Great job, KMD!

Are you having the other knee done and is the new knee titanium?

Will probably have the other one done with the new year when I get my vacation allotment. I think it's titanium.

@kmdskit3 I had both of mine done at the same time. One of the best decisions I ever made. The most common material used is stainless steel with the wear pad being ultra high molecular weight polyethylene.

Bathing always make a person human again.

Ain't it the truth!

how does it feel?

btroje Level 9 July 7, 2018

Very achy now. Supposed to start feeling better Monday.

Ugh that sucks. I had wrist surgery in May. Felt foggy from the anesthesia and pain meds for weeks, severe pain, physical restriction, it was so frustrating. Good news is, we are on the downhill slope now. Take care of yourself!

Hope you feel better sooner rather than later! I sympathize about medication constipation...it will come to an end!
