      @MaryCate Welcome to BoneSmart! We will be knee twins and we are the same age.

      Question for anyone out there: I emailed my OS office today to ask when I should stop my statin and I asked if the surgery had been approved with my insurance. Of course, I was assuming this is all done, signed, sealed, and ready for the day. But - she said it was pending and she had called them today and would be calling them tomorrow. Anyone with upcoming close surgery do you know if yours has been approved yet? I don't see any reason why it won't be approved but I would feel better if she said, yes, it's all good to go.

        Hello all. I had a left total knee Jan 2015. I am going for the right one Jan 9 2017. They say if you had one done, you won't do the second one. Ha.. I like to walk, so here I go again.... Best of luck to those doing the same. :flwrysmile:

        @butterflydancer that is why my hope is - for a very good outcome so that I will be ready and willing to get my 2nd one done this summer. I wouldn't have been able to handle a bilateral but my right knee hurts equally as much as my left (right only feels a bit more stable). Good luck and I'll be cheering my fellow Missourian on!

          I will think of you on Wednesday, Jaschembra. Best of Luck. It hurts afterwards, but pain meds, lots of ice, and you will be good. Not to discourage, but it actually took me about six months with my left one to say I was really glad I did it. I went back to work (I an an ER nurse) after about 10 weeks, I think.

          I'm posting now as I'm packing up my computer to take to my mom's house where I'll be going for 2 weeks after I leave the hospital Wed. or Thur. (She goes to Florida for the winter and has a 1 story, master bedroom, master bathroom). My sister is staying with me since my husband needs to stay home and take care of animals.

          @MaryD @Pattikakes and @MaryCate I will be thinking of you all tomorrow and will say prayers for us all. With all the BoneSmarties available to help us along our journey, we should do just fine. Just keep the faith and patience and all will be fine. Oh, and follow the BoneSmart mantras!

            I'm not sure how to be active on this site. I did post a first message Nov 15, just to say I am scheduled for my right leg TKR on Jan 11. That is still the plan. I haven't had time to process this due to my mother becoming ill Dec 22 just as my kids all arrived for Christmas and she passed away Dec 27. These past two weeks seem like a blur. But now it's time to focus on this surgery. Is there a place to learn how to communicate using this forum? Or am I blind and just not seeing instructions? I am mostly hopeful that this surgery will let me get back to walking/hiking without such pain.

            @birdycarol I'm sure Judy @bottomshollow will be along to give you the info. and add you to the list. I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Look at the Library. There is a lot of information there regarding the site as well. Good luck on your surgery!!

              Scheduled for LTKR on January 24th. Being a cardiac patient with triple bypass and pacemaker/defibrillator, I am pretty nervous about how I will do with this surgery.

              I'm anxious to get there and have it over with! I'll also be having the right done, but no date for that yet. Have to see how the left does. I hope all goes well with everyone's surgery.
