Partial knee replacement on the 28th of this month. Need to do the right one later as they are both bad. Struggling from 2 years, tried everything, shots and even stem cell therapy. Finally doing it and nervous as hell!

Soooo,, Aug 29 is my right TKR date. It has been a long year. I originally had a date of March 2, but fell on Jan 28 and shattered my right ankle. Emergency surgery next day. Recovery was about 2 X longer than what I expected, and I have permanently, 2, 2-inch long screws, a long metal plate, and about a dozen or so metal pins holding the plate to my tibia. and I have been told by numerous medical people it was much worse than a TKR. Any thoughts on that So my biggest fear is Infection in the new knee. and a lifetime of prophylactic antibiotics as they increase the risk of C. diff ??? I plan to go to a rehab facility since my home is just too tiny for a 2nd person here.

Also they say I "must" wear the calf pumps for 2 weeks post op even though insurance won't pay for them. Thoughts?

So glad surgery is behind me and happy to say that things are going better than I expected. Pain is under control and any swelling is minimal. It was nice to be able to come home yesterday, 24 hrs after surgery, and recuperate at home.

@Pattikakes, To start a recovery thread, hover your mouse over "Knee" on the blue line at the top of the page for the drop down menu. Click on the "Recovery" forum.

On the upper right hand side under the "Active Scar Shield" banner, you will see a black rectangle with the words "Post New Thread" in white. Click on this, enter whatever title you want for your thread, but do try to keep it short and sweet, then tab down to the dialogue box and start typing your post which can be as long as you need for it to be.
