I'm officially joining this thread. Hi all. :SUNsmile: My surgery is scheduled for August 15. My major fear (living in south Florida) is that a hurricane will show up either on the day I'm scheduled or soon thereafter and I would have to evacuate.

I have a second surgery coming up after that for the other knee, probably in October. I can't wait to get this over with as I'm more crippled every day.

I'm ready and I know the pain of surgery will eventually pass.

You're young and will do fine!! No worries. I had my first knee done in April (51 yrs old) and it wasn't that bad honestly. Going for 2nd knee in August.

Wishing everyone all the best as you prepare for surgery - I continue to be frustrated and go back and forth between doing the surgery or not and holding out another year - anyways nothing conclusive here [emoji20]

I'm scheduled to have partial knee replacement, possibly total, on August 17.

@zammie24 I've had pain for 2 years and am wondering if this is the right thing to do now. I know there is no other definitive treatment to fix it for good, but do wonder if I could continue on a little longer with the discomfort. Wishing you the best as you decide.
