How common is it for someone to need a knee revision surgery?

Uncommon

Knee
It is relatively uncommon to require total knee revision surgery. It may be necessary for a number of reasons. The three most common are infection in the joint, loosening of the original components, and wear of the plastic (polyethylene) insert.

What is the best and fastest way to tone and firm triceps and fat knees or the anterior and posterior thighs aside from exercise?

No substitute

There is no substitute for exerecse. Stretch, strengthening and low impact cardio. Start easy and often, don't over do it, then increase gradually. Slow but steady wins the race.

I'm 51years old and I really want to loose weight and tone up. My knees are bad and I really love step aerobics. What do you suggest?

Lower the impact!

Knee
The best exercise for a person is the one they'll do! But if your knees can't be trusted, you might want to try something with lower impact. I was amazed when I tried water aerobics; it is really quite a work-out! And the water makes you practically weightless. Losing weight will put less impact on your knees, of course. I encourage you to work with a personal trainer; even a few sessions can help

What's next for my painful ostioarthritis knees, beyond, "Aleive"? I'm in pain, only 52yrs. Young! 115 lbs, female, now stay at home. Enjoy light home exercise to keep tone only & no knee stress. Not on my feet a lot. Dr. says, it's because of "over use"

Low impact

Aquatics, body weight, or resistance bands/ tubing biking, and/or elliptical. Aquatics allow you to perform body weight exercises, but being in water actually reduces the stress on your body due to buoyancy. Once you are able to perform body weight activities then look to add light resistance w/ bands/ tubing. Eventually a knee replacement may be needed.

Is it common to have pain years after knee surgery? I was born "knock-kneed" and as a child had my knees and legs "reset" in an attempt to correct this. Now as an adult, my legs and knees ache tremendously especially with a drop in barometric pressure or

Sometimes

It sounds like you may have had surgical osteotomies as a youngster. You should have your knees xrayed to see if osteoarthritis has developed.

I had an inguinal hernia repair surgery last year, what exercises can i do to tone my obliques and abs?

1SizeDOESNOT Fit All

Inguinal_hernia_repair
The goal of any operation is to get people back to their baseline activity (and MOST people can!).However, activity restrictions may vary quite a bit from patient-to-patient, depending on the size and type of hernia, the nature of the repair, and the patient's health. Abdominal exercises will stress the repair, but the ability of your body to tolerate this stress is best answered by your surgeon.
