Had mine in 2009. Surgeon said I would never be able to climb ladders, etc. I worked another 8 years... climbing ladders and climbing up and down steep banks of excavations. I do have trouble kneeling but most of that is due to how bad the tendons had atrophied before the surgery. I have always thought that as long as I don't "shock" it such the epoxy could give away, I should be okay.PapaD, I’m curious as to what you can and can’t do after knee surgery. Is jogging or running out of the question? My father had it done 10 or so years ago and he has mentioned something about not supposed climb ladders anymore and something about kneeling. He’s elderly now so those activities are long gone.
I've also seen many who have lots of trouble after TKR, but are quite obese. I'm far from skinny. Still, I'm not a what I would consider "fat".
