    Hi! First-time poster. I am having TKR on my left knee on August 5. I'm nervous but ready to be able to walk more than a block without pain. I want to go hiking with my hubby again!

    Good morning!
    Scheduled for first TKR (right knee) August 13th and the left knee on September 24th.
    I admit, that I am very nervous and have been thinking about canceling it. I know it will
    only get worse and the recovery longer by waiting until the "right" time. My goal is to return
    to work on August 26th to which I am administrative and at a desk. Any advice or input would be appreciated very much! Take care everyone!

By starting your own thread, you and your questions and concerns will receive the attention they deserve. Please do this soon and please go to the library to look at all the articles regarding total knee replacement. I'm really afraid that you do not have any realistic concept of what and how long recovery is from this major, major surgery.

    I am not trying to discourage you from having the surgery----I found it to be a life saver and would not hesitate to do it again----but going back to work 13 days after surgery is just not going to be possible.

    Hi All
    Scheduled for Friday August 16 (RTKR) here in Calgary Alberta...just a bit nervous:unsure:. This will be my eighth surgery on it...I began with a menisectomy in 1983 after blowing it out playing rugby, one ACL reconstruction in '89 (from same rugby injury) and 5 arthroscopies to remove various bits and pieces. My ACL reconstruction failed in 1996 so I have been without one since then. I am truly looking forward to having some stability again.
