@Montana Lady: Thanks for your comments. I made a mistake when I said it was my six month check up. It implied that I had my knee done six months ago when I really had it done 11 months ago. Six months ago was the last time I saw him. I agree with you on it being one of the best things I had done. I should have had it done several years before but never got to it. Then push came to shove and I had no choice. It’s so nice to walk without pain in it. My left knee still bothers me somewhat but I won’t have that done until it really bothers me and he agrees with me. I think that working out in the gym has helped it a lot. The doctor was very pleased and told me to come back in a year so they can check on the implant to see how it is holding up. They follow the patient for two years to make sure that every thing is going good.
