ice hockey after knee replacement

by John
(fenton michigan)

I play hockey now 3 times a week ( had knee surgery 20 years ago)on left knee

I have no ACL use a donjoy knee brace & 3 advils , plus extra strength ben gay before each ice time. But it is not getting any better. I believe I am at 65% performance on that knee.

If I can still play hockey ( and water ski on the the slalom course) that is what I would like to do, with improved performance.

So my question is after knee replacement surgery can I play hockey?
