    So glad for your mom and you are a good daughter. I always helped my parents through surgeries, etc. You will never regret it.

    My mom got the other knee done yesterday, it was so stressful for me and her (she was more worried than last time but it was entirely what she wanted to do). She is doing well. Two bionic knees. Luckily we only have two knees!!!

    ANM, I hope that your mom is looking forward to many years of increased mobility.

    Our experience with one bionic knee has been positive. DW made a daily practice of a morning walk. Her weight gradually dropped by 40 pounds over a span of 2 years. She had a great many soul-satisfying experiences on the walking paths.

    Hoping for a speedy recovery!! I agree that the relatively short recovery process will mean a long time of being able to get around much better.
