Jane Fonda has undergone surgery to replace her left knee. The Oscar-winning actress had the operation Tuesday, and blogged about it beforehand.

In a wistful post titled "So Long Old Knee" on her Web site, Fonda wrote that her knee joint was to "be sawed out and in its place will go a titanium rod and ceramic joint."

According to Fonda, it had been "a strong, faithful knee." She said it helped her "up a lot of steep mountains and across rugged terrain." And she recalled smooches by former husband Roger Vadim (vah-DEEM'), who liked to kiss her knees.

The avid blogger took to Twitter as well, writing: "Drugs starting to hit. Wheeee. So long left knee. You're toast!"
