January marks many "new beginnings" and so it will be for those of you having joint replacement surgery this month!

You have hit the January Jackpot!!

If you're having surgery in January, please post here and join the group. It is so helpful to have the support of others who will go through the waiting for surgery and recovery along with you. Get to know each other and you may just end up with a new friend or two who can share your experiences.

I am excited there is now a January group because I am now getting closer to finally having my BTKR which is on January 19, 2017.
Due to health insurance regulations here in Australia I have had to wait 12 months and my life has shrunk hugely in that time, I have really had enough of the pain and restriction!

It's so good to know someone else is going on this journey with me. This site offers so much insight from people who have been there and knowledge is power. My surgery date is January 17,2017.
Because of all I've learned on here has helped me to make an informed decision. Looking forward to going through this with you

Not really nervous yet. Probably after the Christmas rush has finished. We don't have classes here in Australia - this foru m is invaluable for me. We are a 'youngish' bunch so far:heehee:

@MaryD We truly are knee twins! Will yours be left or right? My first will be left. Hopefully right will follow summer 2017. Read some of the articles "how to" articles on the site and set up your pre-op "thread" Any questions you have can most likely be answered by these experienced Bonesmarties on the site.

@Haley4 Trying not to be. Trying to live in the "moment". I do find that when I wake up during the night I'm typically thinking about it. Although, I'm sure in about a month, I will begin to get nervous, so maybe Christmas will keep my mind busy. I have everything done on Dec. 13. Pre op exam, blood work, visit with PT, and class about TKR. I bet it gets really real on that date.
