Susan, 69, is married with two children and four grandchildren. Susan had one knee that bothered her and tore her meniscus in the other. She had a surgery to repair her meniscus but it wasn’t very helpful. Susan began to feel more pain and a “deep sense of loss” when she was kept from doing the things she loved. She finally had an MRI on her good knee but there was no cartilage left in that knee. Susan went to an orientation before her surgery and saw a physical trainer to get as strong as possible before her surgery both which helped in her pre-op and post-op journey. Susan would ultimately have both of her knees replaced with just a couple of months between surgical procedures.
