As stated in the topic heading, does anyone have any experience with riding or racing after a (partial) knee replacement? My operation will consist of replacing the medial part of the left knee joint and reconstructing the ACL. The thing is I'm only 42 and I'm not ready to hang up my boots so to speak. Any advice or experience is most welcome.
