    Good job @crhdeh on the weight loss. I've recently lost almost 40 lbs and it hasn't helped my knee pain either.

    After both hips were totally replaced (anterior) last year (Jan.& March LTHR & Nov. RTHR) and doing well, I am going for my RTKR first on May 18th, the left will be later in the year. This right knee was the worst of all my 4 bone-on-bone joints, so I am looking forward to this one. This should help in overall relief and get back to some outdoor activity...

    Also if you could give us surgery dates for your hips we can add them to your signature.

    Hi everyone-First time posting, but I was on this site daily 10 years ago when I had my right knee replaced. It's all techy here now:)) Reading about others' experiences made me feel normal then, so I am back and will actually engage with all you with all you brave people, instead of the stalking I did 10 years ago:) I am scheduled May 2 for my left knee. I am crazy excited to do this, as I have trouble even walking. Dr. took me off work due to the severity. Why do we wait so long to bite the bullet and say "yes" let's do this? I should have known better. Anyway, I had a tough time with ROM the first time and rehab took way too long. I am crossing my fingers that this time will be different. Looking forward to sharing our daily ups and downs with all of you other May Marvels.

    How do we really keep track of each other? I’d love to be able to check in and share with all the May Marvels. Is there a way to lump us all together in one thread on the pre-op side?

    Hello again Bonesmarties! Left knee was done in 2017 and it’s on to the right. Bonesmart was my lifeline on the first go round and I expect the same for the second.
