I finally made a BIG decision....31 years after I was told I had severe osteoarthritis in my left knee.
On November 9, 2017 I will have my knee replaced with a custom joint from Conformis.
That's 31 years of figuring out how to prolong and preserve my knee while finding a way to stay active, keep fit, stay sane (well, that's debatable) and enjoy a high quality of life.
Those of you who suffer from knee pain, or any kind of chronic pain, know what I am talking about - it is a daily challenge to do the activities that help, not hurt.
Since I made this decision, I want to share the Journey with you from now, through surgery, and rehab... the concerns, questions, emotions, pain, triumph... each week I will make a live video (Facebook - Healthy Knees page - be sure to "like" and "follow" the page to get the latest updates).
The video shows my emotions with this big announcement....and some cool details about the process for a custom knee. Find out what is different -
31 years of taking care of my knee is also 31 years of my "test kitchen" to see what works (and what to stay away from) - all put into the Healthy Knees programs for you.
I wish you the very best in health,
PS - Here's the link to the Healthy Knees Facebook page
get on over there to "like" and "follow" the page so you are the first to hear about the journey. Later this week I'll be in Telluride, Colorado meeting up with high-level fitness folks. I'm going to gather a few to talk about "How much pain is enough?" and when it's time to make those big decisions.
