Knee replacements are all pain, no gain
Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
No, it's not Superman. It's you with your new knee -- at least if you believe all the garbage that the mainstream medicine marketing machine has been slinging.
I tell you, every time I hear some slick-talking surgeon bragging about the benefits of knee replacement surgery and boasting about how he can wipe away YEARS of joint agony with a few swipes of his trusty scalpel, I have to ask him:
Do you actually ever TALK to these poor saps after you replace their knees? Or do you just cash the check and move on to your next victim?
Because I'll take my two eyes over a surgeon's word any day. And what I've seen time and again is that the folks who opt for knee replacements are the most miserable and disappointed people on earth.
And two new studies prove that most of them had no idea what they were getting themselves into.
If you've ever undergone a knee replacement -- or know someone who has -- you know it's some of the worst pain imaginable. It's like having your joint bashed with a lava-coated baseball bat over and over again.
So some clever researchers set out to understand which knee replacement patients were at risk for the worst pain. And what they found has them sounding a wake-up call you'd better heed before EVER going under the knife.
You see, researchers found that you're at an EXTREMELY HIGH risk of suffering from the worst post-surgery pain if you have arthritis... or if you're a woman between the ages of 45 and 65... or if you're overweight... or if you opted for general anesthesia... or if you spent a long time in a tourniquet... or if you lost a lot of blood during the surgery... or, get this, if you have large knee caps!
It sounds like just about every blessed soul who opts for this butchery better expect to endure the worst pain of their life. You won't read that in your hospital's cute and colorful brochure, but that doesn't make it any less true.
In fact, one study's author even admitted that the pain of a hip replacement isn't in the same galaxy as what you'll experience getting a new knee -- and most hospitals are terrible about helping you manage the pain.
Friend, don't let that pain in the knee become a pain in the arse. Keep your weight down, and try cod liver oil, which can block the enzyme responsible for cartilage damage and can start delivering benefits in as little as 24 hours.
Remember, surgery is a last resort -- not a first line of defense. Because when you fall for the mainstream's lies about joint replacement, you'll soon find yourself knee-deep in worse pain than you ever imagined.
