It was compromising walking on the stairs or playing tennis. Every night, when I went to sleep, I woke up every two to three hours with excruciating pain. I knew in my heart, at this point in time, with both knees compromised, I had to do something.
It is called bilateral knee replacement. Two knees. At the same time. Usually it is performed by one surgeon; at times it is done simultaneously by two surgeons. And it is a massive trend in knee replacement nowadays.
