Knee Replacement - Pros And Cons

I am suffering from knee pain due to osteoarthritis. I know that I will have lots of different answers to this question but how many months was it before you were fairly pain free and felt glad that you had the operation

Also how does the pain compare to the arthritic pain before the op and how long before you could walk a mile comfortably without crutches.

My knee seems to have taken over my life at the moment and I feel that I have to go through with this op as soon as possible.

Pregnancy :: Breastfeeding Pros And Cons / Reviews / Feedback ?

Being a first time mom, I'm trying to get all of the input I can. Every post I see on here about breastfeeding is positive. With everything, there are always 2 sides. My question is, who planned on breastfeeding but didn't continue and why? Is there anyone who is unsure or doesn't plan on breastfeeding? Please don't give abrasive responses about how breastfeeding is the only way. I just want to see this aspect from all, unbiased points of view.

Pregnancy :: Natural Labour Or Epidural Shot - Pros And Cons?

I'm a first time mommy and will be delivering my first baby August 21. I'm scared..I hear it's one of the worst pains a woman goes through, yet worth it :) but my question is "would it make a difference if I get the epidural shot? I heard it just numbs the lower part of your body but not that much. Than I hear others that it does." I also hear from my mom and mother in law that I shouldn't and I should do it natural. I don't know what to do. I kind of don't wanna do the shot just because I also heard it causes back pain later on in life and plus every time I've gotten shots to numb me (example dentice) it never numbs me or works. It is probably way different than the shot they give you for labor but I just need some help and suggestions. I wanna hear from other moms that have gone through this I'm kind of scared too...

I don't normally have pain whilst walking but the lump rubs up against shoes, aches and limits the sort of footgear I can wear.  I should love to be able to wear heels again but do not want to end up in a worse situation post op.

2 questions:

Does anyone have experience they can share of the pros and cons of this newish method of operating  ?

Are there centres in Somerset / South West who offer this treatment?

Why Women Think Circumcision Is Better?

I estimate most of women do not care if a man is circumcised or not. After all, what do they fall in love with... the man or his penis? In my opinion women who claim that circumcision is better, who seem to prefer circumcision are insecure about their femininity and think that circ is a way of leveling the playing field.
