Interesting. I have had both knees replaced. On was done 4 years ago and the other 3 years ago. I was diving within 3 months after each procedure and continue to dive on a regular basis at least 2 times a month. My orthopedic M.D. ok'd me to dive as soon as I was able. I did a lot of P.T.to get back in shape. I dive conservatively now staying within no deco limits.
