    Bilateral TKR 6-4-2012 surgery, 5 year anniversary

    Hello Bonesmarties! I am a former Bonesmartie, retired from posting for a couple of years, but I thought I would revisit you and post my 5 year follow up. My surgeon sees his patients at 1 and 5 years post surgury, so I was in to see him in March, a few months early. In fact, he retired a few...

    wberry's First Timers TKR Nervous Cat

    wberry's First Timers TKR Nervous Cat

    Hi Wberry, I'm an older timer, popping in for a visit. It's been 2 1/2 years since my bilateral tkr. While bilateral was the best decision I made in my opinion, for me, you just need to trust and go with what your surgeon feels is best for you, and for him as a surgeon. You should have a good...

    TKR 3-17 RTKR and Totally "On Course"

    Phil, just dropped by, it's been awhile. Good luck with your up coming surgery, I hope it goes as well as the first! That left knee might take a little longer to be ready for golf, so it's a good time to get it done. Sent from my iPad using BoneSmart®

    Gary Stevens, Jockey just got TKR

    110* of flexion several hours after surgery --- he just didn't have a chance to swell up yet. It'll go down, and back up again I bet. Sent from my iPad using BoneSmart®
