    Hi! My right knee is scheduled for February 5th. I work at a hotel on 3rd shift and I am only planning to be out of work for 4 weeks. I know it's ambitious. But, March should still be pretty quiet on 3rd shift and there is a fridge that I can put ice packs in. And I can rest with my leg up when no one is coming in for a reservation. I've been reading a little and feel encouraged. I had read some review on other sites and was getting scared. I like the philosophy here about allowing healing and not going overboard with PT.

    My February 5th surgery has been canceled. I have the flu. :-(
    He said to call when I felt better. So, maybe I'll still be a February Valentine.

    sorry 4.jpg @Softsong, that you have the flu and have had to cancel your surgery. I have removed you from the surgery list for the time being. Just let me know when you have a new date. Get well soon!

    Having a right knee revision on Feb 6th. Feeling very anxious about it. Having another surgeon fix / or replace RTKR done on Aug 1st, 2017. Need plenty of prayer warriors.

    RTKR scheduled for 27 Feb, exactly 5 weeks after the left one was done. This one involves a pre-surgery nerve block so maybe it will be a bit easier than the left one? One can always have hope!

    Right TKR booked for 7th Feb - excited about being able to walk properly again but nervous as I am severely immune suppressed, so a high risk.
