    ekars2, you have posted in an old thread that is no longer active. For the best results you need to start a thread of your own in the Knee Replacement Pre Op Area forum. Here are directions about how to do that:

    To start your own thread in the knee replacement pre op area--On the white bar at the top of the page, click on "Knee Replacement". Then click on "Knee Replacement Pre Op Area" You will see a black oblong at the top right hand side of the page that says "Post New Thread"--when you click on it, it will open a title box. You determine the title you want for your thread and then go down to the dialogue box and proceed to post your message.

    BTW, welcome to the forum. We are very pleased to have you here with us. I'll be looking for your new thread in the knee pre op area.

    Hi ekars2,
    I have osteoporosis in my hip and take once monthly Boniva. I had a LTKR last April and things are finally improving. My problems had nothing to do with the osteoporosis, but rather with prior knee surgeries, scar tissue, atrophied quad muscle, etc.

    Welcome to the forum. It was a big help to me when I was going thru considerable pain and doubt!

    ekars2 I have moved your post and replies to the knee pre-op forum where you are more likely to get replies. Sorry I missed you yesterday. I generally just look for very short threads and new members. Yours didn't show up as it was tagged onto and very old thread.

    I have scrubbed for many, many TKRs where the patient had osteoporosis, men and women! It's not a problem.

    welcome back 6.jpg we're glad you're here 6.jpg @ekars2, I am posting here so it will be easier for you to locate your old thread. If you'd like a title change, just let us know what to change it to and we'll take care of it.
