So he would be looking on average needing 2-3 of them done. And contrary to how most doctors act there is nothing routine of having to put someone under. There can be many complications and depending on the person they can be worse. And people heal faster at a younger age vs older for the most part so he might be just fine with the first one but how will they handle the second one?
Knee replacement aside I would limp the rest of my life, later in life, for a couple million bucks and so would nearly everyone in this forum.
