I’ve been lurking on this website since August of last year, and after seeing a surgeon today finally signed up to join everyone. I’m having total knee replacement on August 25th on my left knee. I’ve had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since I was seventeen, and over the last few years have seen my knee deteriorate in health so that it’s now bone on bone. I’m both excited and terrified for August.

I was having my right knee replacement on May 25. However, just before that I fell over and broke my nose. They have now put off my surgery until Aug 17. Evidently, the two doctors who do it together don't work very often. It seems a long way away and my knee is very sore!

I take 100mg of Celebrex a day, but it has never helped me very much. I can only take a low dose because of my heart and because I am on Coumadin.

Hello fellow HotShots! I am scheduled for my LTKR on August 11th and 3 weeks later my RTKR as long as my hemoglobin is above a 12. I am lucky to work with the OS performing my surgery as well as work for the hospital. I have postponed this surgery 3x's now due to projects at work. Not this time, I have my preop date, medical clearance appt, singed my consents and attended my pre-surgery rehab class. For the next 6 weeks I will make sure I do my knee prehab to strengthen my quads. Getting ready for this journey.
