The other day, we received a comment. Here it is. Feel free to chime in, especially if you’ve had personal experience with knee replacements.
Hi, My name is Steve from New Hampshire and have been snowboarding for about 26 years now. I made the switch after tearing up my meniscus again skiing and having it removed. I don’t want to stop; I have a collection of over 96 boards that I have accumulated over the years and just love the sport. I am just returning from a 4 day trip to Loveland Ski in Colorado with my 2 adult sons, one of which is a career Army Ranger so I know he would have gotten me off the mountain if there was trouble.
I am contemplating a new knee in the Fall of 2017 and need some opinions to help me make this life-changing decision.
Please let me know.
Steve from Derry, NH.
When I learned downhill skiing, my first instructor had undergone two replacements, either knee or hips, though I can’t recall which.
