In 2013 my right hip and left knee were so bad I could NOT stand on either one of them to get on my LTD, so I got both replaced in 2014.
Got my strength back to the point I could ride, then the valve stem broke off the front wheel,
It was an amazing battle to get the tire off the wheel, they had just about fused together.
Then before I got all the things fixed on the bike I needed my right knee replaced. Recovering from that now.
My doc just uses a simple X-ray, if it shows bone to bone and bone spurs, then you are ready for a replacement. When he looked at the x-ray of my right knee in 2013 he said he would see me on that one in 3-5 years, well it was 4, He knows his stuff.
Dang I hope to ride this year.
