    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...

    This is all I get the last few days when clicking on Bonesmart. I'm using my iPad as I always do.

    Anyone taking Celebrex in the US?

    I'm not sure where to put this, because it applies across the board. I just found out about this today, and have already used it. Pfizer offers a Celebrex Savings Card that pays anything above $15 up to $75 on a months prescription, every month through the end of the year! I have a high...

    URGENT? Blood in Urine...

    Maybe a bladder infection. We stopped for dinner on our way home from a weekend away tonight at 6:30 pm and I had blood in my urine when I went to the bathroom. I did not have blood three hours earlier. At home now, and at 8:30 pm, I still have blood in my urine. The question is, do I wait...

    Bilateral TKR Journey Continuing June 4th, 2012

    I thought I would start my new thread while I'm not drugged. A placeholder if you would. At the suggestion of Daniel, 3years old, I will have one Cookie Monster knee (right) and one Elmo knee (left). Cookie Monster (CM for short, or maybe Cookie?) and Elmo, are waiting patiently for me in...

    Did you go to inpatient rehab after the hospital?

    A quick question to start with, if you had a spouse around, how much time would you want them around in a day? I visited a new place, but it's 25 minutes from home. That's a long round trip drive more than once a day. I'm wondering how much time i'll even want him there? Will I be lonely in a...

    Rewind: What questions would your pre-surgery self ask if you could start over?

    I'm meeting with my chosen (thus far) surgeon tomorrow, and am trying to come up with a list of really important questions. What were the best questions you asked, or wished you had asked in retrospect? Is there a posting about this already? There is the surgeon, his nurse and the surgical...

    BTKR with MIS? Anyone had it?

    I've been reading a BTKR recovery journal, and was wondering if anyone has done a journal for BTKR having had the minimally invasive incision. It would be a helpful comparison.

    Journey started

    Hi, I'm new here and have been reading, reading, reading! I have a tentative surgical date of June 4, 2012, but I am still in the decision stage. Which doctor and hospital is the biggest decision, and then to do one at a time or go full out with a BTKA. I'll be reading and posting as I go...
