    @Jewlz1 @Jo Wo I've had no side effects whatsoever from the meloxicam oh, maybe some slight heartburn now and again but not often. If I have the surgery it will be my fifth joint surgery and I'm just over it! I know you all understand and if my GP advises me to go ahead with the surgery I...

    @Jo Wo Wow, that's a bummer if I can only take it for a short duration. I've had absolutely no side effects whatsoever and in fact oh, the knee that has to be replaced doesn't even get sore after exercise oh, something that my other knee which has already been replaced does get...

    @FourCats Thanks for the insight, ForCats: I've done some research on this anti-inflammatory and I know that it's not something that works for everyone or that there are people that have side effects, Etc. I think it's just been so amazing for me and I really don't want to go through another...

    HUGE QUESTION: I started taking meloxicam about 30 days ago. What a wonder drug this is been for me! I've had literally no pain, no discomfort, no nothing for 30 days now... I've also been back to the gym on a regular basis and have walked as many as 18,000 steps a day and I'm now actually...

    @newlybionic Well the proverbial hit the fan so to speak as I ended up having a severe reaction to all the ibuprofen and acetaminophen... I actually felt every symptom that is associated with covid oh, but I didn't have covid. Call my GP to first ask if he I would speak with my orthopedic...

    @newlybionic Yes, my GP has given me the limits and parameters on taking acetaminophen and ibuprofen in combination, every day for the knee. Unfortunately it is wreaking havoc on my digestive system and causes heartburn and I'm not even taking up to the limit that he advised I could. So, kind of...

    Okay, so I was supposed to have surgery originally back in April with an orthopedic surgeon that I had been referred to by my regular orthopedic doctor. I went to see this orthopedic surgeon and was told I had to quit smoking that very day and the surgery was to occur in 3 weeks, around April...

    Odd, as I don't remember telling them that I did not want to participate. Yes, I would definitely like to do the program now rather than later, if possible. Thank you so much for the update Jamie. I look forward to hearing from them... Diana @Jamie

    Jamie, happy to oblige with putting my tagged names at the end of my emails instead of at the beginning. And no, I have not received anything from one step therapist, or the app. However I did start swimming today and it was the most wonderful experience. I can't walk far at all anymore...

    @Celle @Jamie @Jaycey I used to be in really good physical shape for a long time (20 plus years of ballet) but over the last 2 years or so that's changed. I am now feeling like a complete blob, 65 years old but committed to being back in the best shape I can be for my surgery which will...

    @NightQuilter Hello Miss quilter of the night, question for you. When you said you were able to create space between your thumbs before your surgery how did you go about doing that? I'm very curious to know...

    @Yellowrose I hope you understand that your feedback, along with everyone else's, helps me feel so much better even though I have continual pain in the knee. I force myself to walk 2 miles everyday which doesn't help the knee at all ( or maybe it does, who knows?) Please tell me when your...

    TKR Updated- postpone surgery

    @Jamie, You, all of the responses I've received, after announcing my postponement of the surgery, had the best response in terms of what I deeply in my heart related to. Did you know that for most of my life I have simply gone along with what others have suggested or told me I should do? But not...

    @Celle, List website is the best thing that ever happened to me. Imagine, when I was 20 years old I had no clue, no idea that I would ever be going through this over a 10-year period and coming up on yet my fifth joint surgery. I just can't do it right now... I thank you for your response and...

    @Jockette Thank you Jockette for your response. I am in pain but what is so funny is that I pretty much work out everyday and will not be able to do that now until my surgery, hopefully no later than August 1st. I cannot stand to go a day without dancing, walking, the gym, swimming, cetera...
