This is the left knee after the right was done last end of September.
I almost got this figured out now.

Thanks for the words of encouragement... I think.

Zimmer  has been trying for years to get the "plastic" material to last more that 15 years.
Which, by the way,  was the standard lifespan for knee replacements.
They have now refined it to last twice that long.
I don't think you can beat that lifespan with any other material at this time.
And I'd rather do just this once for each knee.

My dad had his knees done twice. Starting first in the late 80's. Those first one's lasted about 5 years.
He had them replaced again and they started failing in less than 10 years.

I think the choice at this time, is going with what Zimmer has developed.
I don't drink water from plastic bottles... never have. I offset my plastic use way more than throwing all those bottles in the trash that aren't getting recycled.


So far I'm coming along just fine. It's been two full days since I had it done.
Walking around a little. Resting it some. Using the "rocking machine" some.
My first therapy is Friday. Then three days next week. Continuing on for the next month.
I need to get back to work!

So, Christmas Eve morning my tiny, ancient coffee maker died, and so I brought down the even more ancient one from the attic. That held me over for a couple days, but today I braved a WalMart (because they had it in stock and at a very good price) and upgraded! {#Cheers}

Sure, sort of. You could also make ballet slippers out of Legos.

But if you're dead set on the project all you have to do is add enough energy to break the carbohydrates down into hydrocarbon precursor compounds and drive off the unwanted components and purify it to avoid contaminants.

Just burn enough petroleum and ta-da! Petroleum-free polymers!

Question:  Should planet-saving heroes refuse medical procedures that use petrochemical products?    As a question of principle?

The tragedy of plastics is its use where better materials exist but the deciding factor is only the price. In this case, it's difficult to imagine a better material at any price, so that's where plastic should be used.
