    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.
