Thanks all. The operation was technically complex due to the calcification around the knee and it took twice as long as it should have. They had to be evasive into areas they wouldnt normally have to be. Supporting structures such as ligaments tendons etc were all impacted on such was the damage. BUT the consultant said it went well despite that and i should have a full recovery! So once again, thanks for the kind remarks and funny comments. Best wishes to all.

Friend who’s had both knees done says following the exercise and physio regime that’s recommended for you is the key to a good recovery.
Good luck, hope you’re up and dancing soon.

The BBC is running a series of programmes on live operations. You can probably get the live knee op on BBC iplayer. Enjoy. :D

When OH had her knee done, after a bit of hard banging and sawing, the surgeon poked his head round the screen and commented "Nearly done. Wall cupboards are up, kitchen will soon be finished."
