    Hickok may the Lord guide those doctors and heal you quickly. My brother do everything they tell you and do not undo what Lord does as the therapy more important than actual surgery.
    You will be in my prayers everyday.

    Before I had my right knee replaced a year and a half ago, I told my daughter that I would treat each pang of pain as a stepping stone to new strength. I post-op therapized myself enthusiastically and am walking like a man again. It's a cool way to get a little younger.

    Father please be with Ken as he undergoes knee surgery. Please guide the medical team that will perform this procedure and then with the team that will take care of him after surgery. Pleae be with him as he goes through therapy and lastly I am asking for removal of pain. Father, Ken is a faithful follower of You and I humbly request Your blessing upon Ken, his family, and the medical teams that will work with him. AMEN

    Prayers for your safety, health and a full and speedy recovery.

    +1 on do the rehab. If possible set up your first rehab appointment dates as soon as surgery is done for when the doctor thinks you can start. Sometimes it can take a week or more to get an appointment from when you go to make the first appointment and that can allow things to start healing tight or binding up.

    Sister had that with her knees, I had it with a shoulder. Both of us waited to set up rehab appointments until doctor said it was time to start rehab. After a few weeks of rehab we both had to go back to be put under so they could break everything free and start over. You better believe I asked before that second go how long before I could start rehab and had an appointment set up before the second trip to the surgery. Having them break free the healing scar tissue was not fun, no way I was going to do it twice if I could avoid it.

    Prayers sent for you and for your doctors. God is the healer, but he created MD's as well. If you have avoided exercise recovery is harder, if you have continued to exercise the muscles around the knee recovery will be easier.

    Just before I had one done (in 2006) the doctor came into the prep room where they were getting me ready to go into the O/R and he said ..."you seem awfully calm"...I told him I'd given it all to God and God gave it to him and if it got screwed up he could deal with God...

    He laughed long and hard and did a beautiful job...the exercises are the key to a successful recovery...you will call your "physical therapist"...a "Physical Terrorist" before you are done but it makes the work the Ortho all worth while...So I'll ask my God to look in while you are getting the work done and I'll bet things go fine...best wishes...for anyone that has not seen one..I'll put in a pic....I'd not go to you tube to see a replacement being done, however...probably better to read a reloading magazine, etc.

    This is the very best advice anyone can give you.
    Any pain you have after your surgery will be good pain, because with each passing week it will get better.
    If you never get the knee replacement all pain hence forth will only get worse.
    Do you exercises until tears come and you want to cry, it's the best thing you can do.

    I am a sovereign individual, accountable

    Friends, operation on Wednesday, overnight stay and just got home on Thursday.

    Thanks so much for prayers offered up on my behalf. Go to rehab tomorrow.

    It was real. It was fun. But it wasn't real fun!!!

    Really not too bad, as I worked out with leg weights for nearly two months. It is uncomfortable, but not unbearable.

    Rehab promises to be a thrill!!!
