I assumed I needed a full knee replacement. Dr. Mayman, after examining my condition, suggested a partial knee replacement. As he said, only one side of the knee was an issue and at my age and health and weight, I am the perfect candidate for this surgery. Having said that, I am now two years past the surgery and all is well. I skied 66 days the year of the surgery but had to end it because they shut down the ski areas. This year, I skied a total of 100 days and 1.6mln vertical feet, an incredible achievement considering I’m 67. Everyone keeps asking me, “How’s the knee?” And after thinking, "Why are they asking me?", I say, "Fine, it’s every other part of the body that aches!"
