Surgery on the right knee
Feb 21, 2013
1 week from tomorrow I have total knee replacement on my right knee... I am so excited... On December 20th I had total knee replacement on my left knee... It was the best thing I have done since having Gastric Bypass. This is life changing for me. So many things are going to change and be so much better.
Left knee done now!

Sorry so late posting on my left knee surgery.... I had total knee replacement on Dec 20th and came through it with flying colors... Not only was it bowed backwards from the contractor but it was also bowed sideways something we did not see in the xrays... Now it is straight and has no contractor in it at all... it has be 6 weeks now and everything is going great.... the scar is great... PT is on going and that is good.. It hurts I won't lie but it is something that I have to do to work the knee...
I got the date for the surgery for the right knee and that will be March 1st so I am expecting the same with it as well.... I will keep everyone posted on how the right knee does...

But you know me I will get it done.. getting more excited with each passing day... Yes!!! getting my goals done...!!

I had found this on my timelline today and wanted to update it...I had Bariatric Surgery Feb 7th 11, I weighed 407lbs day of surgery. I was on 2 blood pressure meds, water pill and a pill for incontencent.. It is almost 2 yrs out now and I am at 218lbs and only have 18lbs to reach my goal of 200 lbs... I no longer take blood pressure meds water pills, or pills for incontencest and no longer have a problem with that... I do still have my CPaP but will be doing a sleep study in Dec to see if I can come off of it.... I have came out of my wheel chair, walker and cane... I walk everywere now... I do have contractors to my hip and knees caused by sittting in a truck for years and then in a wheel chair for years... Now I am working to release the muscles so that I can have knee replacement... I started PT 2 weeks ago and yesterday I started working out with a trainer at (Live Fit) yesterday... Both are great workouts for my hip and knees... I have come along way with a lot of hard work but would do it all over again to be as healthy as I am today... I am trying to pay it back for all that I have learned and want to help others with their fight with obesity...

my water intake is 49, my BMI is at 31.1 when it use to be 72 and my bone density is at 7.8 and my workout age is 41 and my real age is 53 so this is exciting to know that the numbers show my working out and my weight loss has paid off for me
