All the best for the fishing. I know where you're coming from re llimping.
Just had my left knee replaced in January following my right knee last March.
Following last years op my first weeks fishing was in May. Managed OK but avoided the lumpy bits of wading. Due on the Dee first week in March, may be a bit soon after the op but hey-ho it was booked anyway. Think I'll turn up on crutches first morning and warn the ghillie that its Help the Aged week.

Forget the ice packs to reduce the swelling. Just get in the river at this time of year. I've found it reduces the size of everything below the water line!
