    Hi @tez67 - & welcome to the community. That was young to have needed knee replacements, but hope things have improved for you since your surgery :) Please have a look around & join in with any discussions of interest.

    Hey @tez67, welcome to the community. I hope you're doing okay after your knee replacements, it takes a while to recover from them from what I remember.

    I say from "what I remember" because my Dad had one of his knees replaced in his 20s. I was still very young of course but I remember him using a walking stick for quite a while. He's always had bad knees, the other one has managed now to his 50s and the doctors are trying a lot to help keep the cartilage that is left stay. Likely he will need it replaced soon, but it is amazing how far we've come in 30 years.
