I’m almost 72 now, and very modestly state that younger men can not believe my physical condition and abilities
In early 2011, I could barely walk. Dr. Benton Emblom stated my MRI showed bone-on-bone degenerative condition in my left knee. He performed total knee replacement on a Monday morning and I returned to work Thursday afternoon-
as a construction superintendent on a large school build project.
After physical therapy I never looked back. I've had 100% use ever since. To this day, I am still running big construction projects. My job requires me to walk several miles per day and average 12 flights of stairs per day.
During summer of 2012 my hip hurt so bad I was walking less and less. My quality of life was very low. I once more came to Dr. Emblom, but he looked at the MRI and Dr. Andrew Cordover was consulted.
The next Monday I had partial disc removal at L4, checked out hospital Tuesday noon and returned to work Wednesday morning. I received Immediate relief and recovery to better than ever quality of life.
Getting older is not as bad as some want you to think! :)
