    I had both knee's replaced, and was wondering if I can kneel just to get in the bath tub ?

    I have arthritis from my neck down to my feet, I like to soak my body in the tub !!!!

     

    Thank You,

     

    Sincerly Yours,

    Jeanette

    I had both knees replaced at different times: 2003 and 2006.

    I do get in the bathtub and soak because it feels so good, but have to use my arms to get out of the tub.  Sometimes I get out in stages going to the edge first and then up from there.
