Kurt Angle says his recovery from double knee replacement surgery has been “pretty brutal”

During his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle discussed his recovery from double knee replacement surgery…

“A week later, I’m not doing much better. It’s pretty brutal, especially when you have both knees done at the same time. I’ve never went through anything this difficult. I also have a little bit of a back problem, so I can’t use my legs but I can’t use my back. So, I’m pretty much useless. When I did the surgery, what they found out is they found a screw in my left knee, just hanging out in my knee socket. It’s pretty incredible. It must have been from my surgery 10 years ago – the ACL surgery I had on my left knee – and the screw popped loose and was just hanging out in my knee socket.”

“I started rehab the next day. They’re on you. They stay on you and want you to work through it. The more you do without injuring yourself, the quicker you’ll heal. They’ve had me do a lot of rehab ever since I got out of the hospital. I go to a rehab facility three days a week over near my house and then the other four days, I do five different sessions of rehab on my own. It’s a long process, but hopefully, it will work out. It should and I’m very positive about this.” (quotes courtesy of 411Mania.com)
