    Suggestion for getting in/out of car pre op

    My ability to get in and out of the car has decreased especially with wearing more clothing and different textures like corduroys catching on the cloth seats (temperatures are dipping here to 30s and days in the 40-60 range). I was telling my husband the other day to make sure I put a...

    Interesting study regarding corticosteroid injections for hips/knees

    Just saw this study released today (October 15, 2019) on joint injections for hips and knees and there seems to be some evidence that they cause more harm than good. Very interesting. https://pubs.rsna.org/doi/10.1148/radiol.2019190341

    Here I go again

    Had my Lt TKR Jan 28,2013 and knew after recovery that I was not going to wait as long for the right knee to be done - it was no fun having pain in the right when the pain went away in the left. At my 3m appt I asked the OS if I could schedule the Rt. and he said any time. As usual, due to home...

    TKR Lt. knee done and now so is the Right. Recovery here I come.

    My left TKR was on Jan 28,2013. First of all I want to thank everyone for the information on this site. I first found it right before my TKR but really started reading it once I was home. I read many of the posts including the library information and balanced what I was told to do with the...
