Up side it is all paid for. The down side is that I have to travel almost 8 hours to get it and stay for 2 weeks. My daughter is going with me as my husband is semi retired and only works part time .. no worky no pay.

Hi guys. Waiting for my TKR date - should be end September. Not too worried about the op - what's the worse that can happen! My only concern is the time it will take to get back to work - only getting 4 weeks full sick pay. Got a fairly physical job so presume it will be longer than if a desk jockey. Strange thing is the old creaky left knee has felt a lot better recently - he knows he is on the way out!

Good luck to everyone with their ops.

I stand on my feet for a full 8 hours a day at work . I also lift 40 and 50 lbs buckets of icing and glaze frequently. At my first consult they told me 8 weeks to get back to work . I need both knees replaced ... one at a time. Not sure when I will be able to do the 2nd or rather Left knee . I will be on disablity which means 2 weeks without pay and then only 50% ..... I am a little worried about that.
