    @meechmom Wow, I wish I had your excitement! I'm having my TKR the same day as you. Looks like there are a bunch of us. Do you feel like you have everything ready?

    Hi all,
    Question…as a result of my bad knee, over time I've gained weight 10-15 lbs probably. How likely is it that I'll be able to lose this weight and how long will it take? Can I expect to lose any weight the first month…or second…or third? I know everyone moves along at their own pace but just wondered what you all might think about this. Thanks so much. What a great forum! Foxsea

    :curtsey:@thequiltermom Belated best wishes for your surgery on 22 July. The wi-fi/internet in this hospital is patchy at the best of times, so couldn't log in Tuesday to wish you well, by now, you are on "the other side" and best wishes for your recovery.

    @Racey60 @yorkhannah Best wishes today for your surgeries and look forward to seeing you on the other side. :flwrysmile:

    @marmora thank you! So far so good, everyone at Royal Ortheopeadic Birmingham has been fabulous. The operation couldn't have gone better, every concern I had has been unnecessary. I'm very achey but it's really no worse than it was before the op. The main problem I've had - for those awaiting their op - is not being firmer with myself about how much rest I'd need after. I've still yet to get more than 3 hours continuous rest, I don't feel like I've slept at all and I'm hoping to have a sleeping tablet tonight to give me a little hand because I'm getting short-tempered with my poor family and very weepy. Any who, enough of the glamour... Despite all this I would jump at the chance to do it again. It was so, so much better than I had been scaring myself about. Hope everyone else is doing well in recovery or in planning for their op day. H x

    @yorkhannah
    Good Evening, we are on the same time zone, cane hope you are settling for the night. I'm 7 days post-op and not sleeping through the night,but take frequent naps and rest times through the day.
    Also limit my visitors to a maximum of 15 minutes and ask that the come one at a time and find that helps to not tire me out . This works for me and maybe some of these ideas could help you. Although, we each have to find what works best for each of us .

    Hi, @SoBlessed! My surgery is the same day. The only thing that has kept my anxiety down is taking a little Klonopin every day. That is saving my sanity, I think. There are a lot of us going that day. You could start your own thread in the pre-op area, if you haven't already, and talk about what scares you, or anything you want.
