“You’ve got to be motivated, that’s the big thing.” — Nancy
When you spend your days on your feet like I do, your knees are a big deal. I was at a point where I needed both knees replaced. I couldn’t afford to keep putting off the procedure because my quality of life was starting to suffer.
I called a friend who had her knees done recently. She raved about her ThedaCare doctor and his staff. So I set up an appointment, and I really liked what he had to say. I planned to have one knee replaced at a time, but he said he could take care of both at the same time. The entire experience was fantastic: the care, the surgery itself, the follow-up and recovery. I felt like everyone truly cared for me and had my best interest at heart. Recovery takes a while. And you have to be committed to putting in the work to recover and get stronger again. But, I can confidently say, if I had to do it over again, I’d do it the same exact way.
