    TKR KathyH New Knee

    Hi Kathy I have been wondering how your hubby did with the shopping?? My hubby was always sent off with a list and always came home with all items from the list - he didn't ever deviate from it ..... all very boring. I would ask him where are the treats and he would reply he only bought what...

    What type of Anaesthetic

    Hi Sheila I am sure our brain and bodies have a switch that goes on when we are getting nearer our surgery date.

    Revision TKR My left knee story, revision complete 8/14/12, hopeful

    Great report Dawn and I'm not surprised your muscles are a tad sore. I really think it's the muscles rebelling as they get used to being worked in a different way. It will take time but well worth it for you. Keep well xxx
