One nice thing is that now they have knee replacements designed for women. Women carry their weight differently and stress different parts of the knee. They used to just make a small guy version. But I have been seeing literature on the newer prostheses designed for a woman's body and way of moving. If anyone is having this done I would be curious as to what their doctors say about the new replacements.
I thought it would be a good thing to add a thread on knee replacements since it looks like a lot of us are facing them sooner or later. I copied the post from Jill (China Doll) from another post.
