In brief: Life Changing
If you have a bona fide need for replacement and have seen a reputable orthopedist, this surgery can change your life.
You will have <1 week in the hospital, perhaps a week in rehab if any, and will have 2-6 weeks of rehabilitation to go through pending any complicaitons, your general health and condition. You will have some pain, stiffness and muscle atrophy, thus the therapy. Ask a lot of ?'s.

In brief: Okay
Knee replacement surgery is performed for the diagnosis of arthritis.
It is a very successful surgery if done for the correct reasons. It is necessary to have a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon to determine who is an appropriate candidate for this surgery.
