Welcome to the team!

I would suppose having one leg longer doesn't do your back any good emoticon Have you tried a shoe insert? It might even things up a little better. Does your physical therapist have any suggestions? I'd imagine they have run into this situation and might have some creative ideas.

Come join us in the pool and chat. It's been kind of quiet lately. I think everyone is out of steam after a busy summer.

Hello, I had a total right knee replacement on June 3rd. I am still in physical therapy. I can straighten to zero and bend to 110. This was the best thing I ever did. I have to have the left knee done next, but not sure yet when that will be. I just know it won't be longer than a year after the right knee.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do about the limp I now have? My right leg is now longer than the left. Walking is difficult as well as rehab when the other knee is in such bad shape. My orthopedic surgeon does not like to do both knees at the same time.
