    Had the waterproof dressing and 28 staples removed today. I feel human again. X-rays perfect. doctor pleased with my progress. Can walk about 500 feet without walker or cane. May start driving short distances. I am very pleased with my new knee. Life is great!

    DONT START DRIVING
    Its not that you cant, it just in case you need to make an emergency stop that type of an action could cause damage . it gets easier each day .

    My wife says no driving until October, which is fine with me. Barren Ridge Therapy is only 1/2 mile from home, but she will continue to drive me until then.
