Left TKR scheduled for August 6, 2019! Was second guessing needing it up until a month ago. It's for sure needed and I'm now getting my head and heart around getting it done!

Congratulations! Scary and anxiety promoting as surgery can be, the results and the freedom from pain is so wonderful there are no words for it.
I'm 3 mths post op. I celebrated a few days ago by kneeling (on a soft surface) which was ok and by sitting on the floor and getting up. Was ok for my 2 x TKR but I need work on core strength to do this without using furniture for assistance. I guess a 5 year journey with dodgy knees has had more effect than I realised!! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Scheduled for left knee TKR on August 14th. Have been having problems with this knee for over a decade and look forward to replacing it. My right knee also is on the list for replacement, but not for a few months later.

I'm new to this forum, so I hope I'm posting in the right place. Am scheduled for DOUBLE TKRs August 26. I never dreamed of doing them both at the same time until I met my new surgeon, and he feels confident I can do it, so I'm going for it. I'm 75, and not really athletic, so am trying hard to get as strong as possible before surgery. Just call me a wild and crazy gal...

I'm scheduled for right TKR on Aug. 20th. It's taken me a while to make the decision but I think I'm finally at the point that it's something I must do to reclaim my life and be able to do all the things that I love to do and haven't been able to for quite a while.
