8. Am I prepared to work through the recovery process?
Whether you have a partial or total knee replacement, joint surgery is a major event. Recovery requires a commitment to weeks of post-surgery rehabilitation and exercise to regain muscle strength, range of motion and good mobility. There will be good days and bad days as your body heals. You will need to be committed to following your post-surgery regimen even when it hurts.
