    I will be having total knee replacement/resurfacing this coming Tuesday, Nov. 8. It will be so nice to get rid of the horrible pain.

    I have an excellent surgeon and the hospital I am going to has a dedicated wing for the "joint replacement center". So I'll be in super good hands.

    Have a very good friend who will be taking care of all the animals while I'm in hospital.

    Of course I am feeling pre-op jitters-nerves, but trying to keep my mind off that. [​IMG]

    You will wonder what you took you so
    long to get the replacement. Good Luck
    to you and I wish you a speedy recovery.

    I hope all goes well and everything is as you would like it to be. Lord knows I feel your pain. I'm not quite to the replacement period .

    I have friends that have had it done and they seem to be doing very well,


    I wish you the best and a speedy recovery,

    My mom has had two knee replacements (and two hips...). Don't get discouraged if it takes longer than you think to get totally mobile again, just keep doing what the PT says and you will get there. Oh, and make sure you eat plenty (extra) of protein, you will need it to rebuild muscle.
