Post #1310719


I'm having my total knee replacement March 8 and was wondering how I can best prepare for the gardening after I'm better.
If you've had this surgery, when were you up and around and what did you do to get there? How did it affect your ability to garden? Can you kneel down now? How about squat? If you can't do those things how on earth does one weed? Bending over at the waist will kill my back ...

I'd love your input.
