Having played sports in high school, been in the Marines in the '60s, kept up jogging for a few years, and since I am now 63 years old and ready to retire, my knee joint has worn out.I've put off surgery because I don't want titanium and plastic rather than bone but the bones hurt. Any one had any joints replaced? How did it go? How are you doing?JoeThe knees are always the first to go. Some say it's memory but as I said to my wife, Whatshername, that isn't always true.As others have written, get it done. My anecdotal experience with fellow members of The Legion is they regretted not doing it sooner. As one said, “In the time I waited I could have been doing stuff I now can do.”There's another aspect: when a knee goes the strain on other joints is increased and that itself is tiring.So do it and change your screen mane to Steve Austin.\Welcome aboard.MichaelR
