    "All for one and one for all!!!"

    March brings us 'round to the first of our monthly teams - the March Musketeers. Three of our members called themselves the March Musketeers back in 2010 and the whole program of monthly teams just took off from there.

    If you're having surgery in the month of March, please post your date and any other information you'd like to share in this thread.

    It always helps to have a group of BoneSmarties going through surgery and recovery together. You can support each other in true Musketeer fashion and even brandish a few swords as you reach milestones in recovery!

    So....OUT with the BAD.....and IN with the GOOD! Let's get the Musketeers rallying together and ensure success for one....SUCCESS FOR ALL!!!

    Hi! I've been lurking for a couple of years, knowing that my time was coming -- and it has. I'm having RTKR on March 7.

      march 6.jpg @crstysue, you have been officially added to the March surgery list. Along with being a January Jackpot, you have the double honor of also being a March Musketeer!

      You can continue using the recovery thread you will create for your first knee for your second.

        I guess I'm going to have to start looking at two knee replacements in 8 weeks being an "honor"...love the positive spin on that!

        Hi Lumberjack...... our surgeries are both March 7th R THR for me. This is a great place to get a lot of good I formation from those who are going through the same things.
