    I have my right knee replacement scheduled for 1/8, but my left is really acting up, too. This may turn into a bilateral...we’ll see:shrug:

    Awwww.... thank you! So sweet!:flwrysmile: I will start something in a few days. Feeling kinda down tonight. My surgeon told me I “do not qualify” for the perfect patient for bilateral. I seem to already be a problem.....highly allergic to the adhesive bandage he likes to use , allergic to the Penicillin he likes to use and already voicing my reluctance for aggressive PT and he says “ there is a window” and I will develop adhesions. I just feel overwhelmed. And in pain, so I am going to bed. Gentle hugs!

    Hello,

    I am scheduled for a right total hip replacement on 12/5/18 and then six weeks later I will be having a right total knee replacement on 1/16/19. I am so ready to have my life back. Right now my hip is what is giving me the most pain. Seems as though putting off the new knee affected my hip. I have been having horrible hip pain for the last 9 months and I've been scheduled for surgery since July. It's almost time......let's get this ball rolling!!

    :welome: I am happy to have someone else in the group @moon2stars ! I know what you mean about the pre op pain. I never would have thought my knees would go south so fast on me! I was just thinking last night that even six weeks ago it wasn’t at all like this! I guess it will make us super happy to have the surgery by the time our dates roll around!:giggle:

    I am more than likely having knee replacement in January. I must wait 90 days after the cortisone shot that only helped 3 a few days. That would put me at 1/23/19 or later depending on surgeons schedule. I plan to call tomorrow to find out what I need to do next. Any advise would be appreciated.

    @rose1940, I cannot add you to the surgery list until you get a definite date. I suggest that you start a thread of your own in the knee pre op forum where you can interact with other members and get answers to your questions and concerns.

    To start a new thread, hover your mouse "Knee" on the blue line at the top of the page for the drop down menu. Click on the "Pre Op". On the upper right hand side under the "Joint Replacement Awareness Day" 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.

    @Bike4Fun . All of a sudden, it feels like it is coming up fast. No doubt that I need this, but I am not looking forward to it at all. :bolt:

    @X2mangie You are so right! I made the decision about TKR this past July. At that time, January seemed so far away! Now, January is right around the corner! Like you, I need this surgery, but it does not thrill me. :scare: I do know the biggest thing that has helped has been reading everyone's experiences on Bonesmart. :friends:
