    @im2good781 - You are neither too old or too young. OA doesn't discriminate but when it decides to bite it doesn't let go. The only way forward is to get it dealt with and then the door will finally open on a whole new, painfree life. Embrace this opportunity you've got so much to look forward to!

    I am having a left THR on February 15, 2017, and am so frightened! I had a DVT (blood clot) in this leg diagnosed in August, 2015, and have had to wait for this clot to resolve ( it only did partially, the part behind my knee has hardened and is now considered "chronic") before having this surgery. I have also been told both knees need replaced, also, so this is the first step! If anyone has had a blood clot PRIOR to having this surgery, I would be especially interested in hearing about their experiences.
