I have about 30 days to decide if I will have my knee replacement surgeries in the next year or not. Of course I can always change my mind, but we have to sign up for our 2012 benefits and I need to plan for the medical reimbursement account.
You would think it would be an easy decision considering how great I am doing with my new hips, but I have never made an easy decision in my life. I over analyze, worry and then analyze some more. Somebody just tell me what to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As usual I will go through the list of pros and cons a few thousand times before deciding.
The knee pain will eventually be gone.
I will have very few limitations to what I can do.
I can stop defining my life by the surgery I am going to have or recovering from.
I will have to take two 6-8 week time-outs from this new mobile life I am enjoying to recover from surgeries.

Surgery is always risky; blood clots and infection.
What would you do????
