    Finger/Thumb Thumb Trapezium Replacement 6/16/17

    First my knees, then my hip, now a new thumb joint. Last procedure for many years to come I hope! This may be a mistake but at least having my right hand splinted will prevent me from trying to do too much too soon after my hip replacement! So far, not too bad but I think it will get worse...

    11/9 Right Total Knee Replacement

    Hi I am having a total right knee replacement on November 9th, followed by the left TKR five weeks later - hopefully. I am worried about that time period because my left knee is not much better than the right. That gives me a lot of motivation to do all the exercises to strengthen the right...
