Hello July Sparklers! I just realized I am less than a month away from my left TKR, and I'm freaking out! I had pre-op bloods and urinalysis done today, which made the looming date seem even more real. I see my PCP on Thursday for surgery clearance and EKG. Suffice it to say, I'm really scared, and I'm questioning whether or not to go through with this. Is it normal to get scared like this? My knee was particularly painful this past weekend, just because I assembled a lateral filing cabinet, and to get up and down from the floor several times. I wonder if I can endure the pain. Don't get me wrong, I'm no wuss: bilateral mastectomies, chemo, and breast recon, c-section, and multiple other surgeries, including extensive orthopedic surgery on an arm and wrist for avascular necrosis. But I'm scared of this, and feel like backing out. Help. Someone, talk me off this ledge!

@Mizen, I have corrected the knee to be done. "az-postal" is the user name of another member who is having surgery the same day you are.

Well I'm once again on the surgery schedule this time for July 17 for left TKR. Let's hope it doesn't get cancelled again. My new OS is still researching which replacement he's going to use. Please add me to the July list.

Another July 11 surgery sister here. Had partials in both 2008, total revision in right 2015, and now total revision in left. So this is #4.
