After an accident in Mexico, I was treated for arthritis for 6 months with no relief, a 50+ year old woman protocol. I learned then to be a more assertive partner in my healthcare. Meniscus tears on both sides of my left knee were discovered and successfully cut away, I was told I would probably get arthritis in that knee and, sure enough, 9 years later it began. I had trouble doing everyday activities and also my favorite activity - paddle boarding! A total knee replacement was recommended at TCO and I readily went for it! Dr. Kelly
and Lindsay were my heroes! It took over a year of hard work and great help from superior physical therapists but I am able to hike 10 miles, always take the stairs and enjoy life in retirement!
