    Dave just purchased today what they call a scooter but it’s just a four wheel electric motor cart which you sit in and ride on the sidewalk. He’ll be able to go to the library or the stores and just sightsee which should brighten his day.

    I had to buy a ride on buggy for the golf due to my upcoming total knee replacement, it has it's drawbacks

    I haven't failed, i've merely found 10,000 reasons why it didn't work

    Gis, I hope your surgery goes well and that you have a speedy recovery. When is it scheduled?

    In the UK we have the NHS, normally there is a waiting list of approx 12 weeks for consultation and then surgery etc
    I'm expecting to be taken in middle of October.
    My right knee has had 6 operations so far in my lifetime, soccer injury and mostly arthroscopy type ops for cartilage repairs but i did have a lateral release where they released the tension on my exterior ligaments.

    However, the total knee replacement should take care of the constant pain i'm in.

    After care will be physio etc and generally building up the muscle above and below the knee to relieve stress

    Gis, thanks for the update. Yes, I have heard of the "waiting times" in other countries. Ouch. I too had a tendon/muscle "lengthening"... wow. I was 20? It was my R hip... it's called Snapping Hip Syndrome. Painful! and loud! You could here the muscle snap over my hip joint across the room with every step. Odd since this mostly happens with professional dancers - and I was 15 when it started. I have a 3" scar like a hernia repair there... fixed the pain but the popping hasn't ever gone away fully.
    Anyway! I hope things go well for you & no severe pain while you wait. Keep us posted! My Dad had a knee replacement last year & up & around the next weekend without any assistance (not smart). He was good - so was my friend after her last fall & my MIL ...

    Oh... luv the pic! hahaha
