    Hip problem or something else?

    Can you good people tell me what the symptoms are when needing hip replacements? I have had a pain in my side for months especially when I walk. I had two cat scans for something not related to hip, but no problem showed up in my side except a small kidney stone which has passed. Still have...

    Can't use the new board.

    I can't get the new forum to work for me... Other times I get a message saying the forums address is wrong, try again, etc. I can't get around on different forums, including the one on bugs, errors, and techy questions. I don't know which thread this message might appear in, but I need help in...

    JAS system, 10 months out

    Well here I am at 10month post op and my knees never got straight, so my surgeon is allowing me to try the JAS system.

    Dreaded count down has begun.

    Friday is my day. Today was my pre-op with surgeon. Having bilateral in order to heal better/more in alignment. All doctors are different even at the same hospital. My doctor said I'll have no ice machine, no CPM, & no TED stockings. He feels the Lovenox blood thinner will be enough to keep...

    No one seems to know what Anesthesia is the safest. I talked at length with an anesthesiologist and walked away not knowing any more than when I walked in the door. Now today, after reading two posts from two different members, I'm just as confused as ever. One had a general anesthesic and ended...

    Contracture and TKR question

    I looked in the library and didn't see anything about contracture of the knee. If a person has contracture, will a tkr solve the problem, or will the surgeon need to do more than tkr during surgery? From my understanding, the ligaments, tendons or muscle have shortened over time, so I'm...

    Can you tell me where my thread went today? Did I ask something I shouldn't have and it was removed or lost or? I think my subject line was "What is this" and went on to tell what I was feeling when I sit down. I wondered if anyone else had felt this and knows what its caused from. I've...

    My journey with bad knees and fears about surgery.

    I am so terrified to have this operation but feel its necessary or end up in a wheelchair and be a burden to my daughter.
