    Hello to all our August Hot Shots!!! This is the place to join your fellow surgery-mates and chill out as you count down the days until your new joint arrives.

    We welcome you to join the group and get to know your fellow BoneSmarties who will be getting new joints this month. We've found that it helps to have a group of folks who are going through surgery do it as a team....helping and supporting each other.

    So let's get this party started!!!

    @bottomshollow Hi there. Yes, I am scheduled for Left Knee Total Replacement on August 7, 2017. Also had arthroscopic surgery on same knee in June 1995 thinking I needed to repair a torn meniscus but it ended up just lots of loose fragments of cartilage floating around, e.g., arthritis, and the meniscus not looking too bad. Sucked the fragments out, cleaned up inside a little and was told I'll see you in 10 years. Thought I've done well since it's been 22 years.
    And, I have a Pre-Op post started when I asked a question earlier. Should I continue with this one or start a new thread?

    My surgery is set for August 10. I have learned a lot on this web site. Fortunately, I have known I needed this surgery for 2 years now, and I have been working very hard at strengthening all my muscles in preparation.

    Left TKR scheduled for August 16. My right knee was replaced almost 10 years ago. I discovered this forum at that time.

    I'm scheduled for left TKR on August 15th. I've been told I have bone on bone but had no pain or symptoms before I tripped over a parking lot bumper about a year and a half ago. I'm terrified because my left leg was always my good one. My right leg has outer numbness and neuropathy from a 1996 herniated disc injury that required a hemi-laminectomy. It seems to be strong but I just hope it's strong enough to support me after the left TKR surgery.
