Mary Ellen: I just moved from one moment of pain into another. I spent about two years having great difficulty getting up and down any stairs, even just one or two. Prior to surgery, I had very long walks with the dogs. We can walk from my house to the ocean and then walk along the ocean for a couple of miles and then back home, and I did that every day. And it got to the point where I could barely walk across the living room instead of down to the water. I had my surgery, and in less than a week the physical therapist says, ‘You can walk up those stairs.’ And I’m like, ‘Really? Okay.’ And I could. And then I walked up and down two, three more times just to make sure I wasn’t dreaming, and it was effortless, painless, totally functional. My knees bent perfectly, straightened perfectly. Right now, I am walking better than most people who haven’t had their knees done. Now that I have my new knees, I can hike through the woods again with my dear old doggie.

I had consecutive victories from the day I left the hospital, and I’m still having them. I reached my goal of being able to walk normally and dance normally and move about my regular life. ConforMIS was a great choice for me that I am dancing happily. I’m only 61. I expect to be dancing for at least another 20 years. I would say if you’re looking towards knee replacement that this is definitely an option that you should explore. I did not have a lot of pain. I did have a lot of mobility very quickly. I did have a lot of weight bearing very quickly. I want people to know that they shouldn’t be afraid to go ahead and have their knees replaced, and that for me ConforMIS has been an outstanding solution.
