If you're having surgery in the month of June, I hope you'll join our June Sunbeams for a bright start to your life with your new joint!

Your fellow Sunbeams will help you along the way with warm hugs and lots of support!

We have found that surgery and recovery is easier if you have a group of folks who are going through similar experiences.

So post and tell us your surgery date and get ready to meet your fellow June Sunbeams!

Having TKR at the end of June. Date will be set after medical clearance is done. I’m pretty nervous to have it at my age.

Hello everyone! I have a left knee replacement scheduled for June 6. I did my right knee and left hip in the fall of 2014 - just 5 weeks apart. I am so pleased with the results of my previous surgeries and look forward to what I hope is the last of my bionic replacements! I am using the same physician, but this time he is doing it in a same day, outpatient setting. Curious if anyone else is doing this. So much has changed since 2014!

Hello! I am scheduled for a right TKR on June 12th. I have extremely severe OA (bone on bone) in both of my knees which is now really impacting my mobility and quality of life. I was ready to "pull the trigger" on getting my right knee surgery a couple of years ago; but, I was then diagnosed with breast cancer. And, after spending two years of my life going through that ordeal, the very last thing I wanted to see was the inside of a hospital! And so, I reclaimed my life for awhile and put up with my bad knees. Something I can no longer do and so I'll get my new right knee first and then go back for round #2 and get my new left knee. Truth be told, I am more terrified of this upcoming surgical experience and recovery than I was with BC!

Just got my date for rtkr. June 6. Was originally scheduled in March but was delayed due to broken wrist. Glad to have a date. It will be 3 years and a few days since my ltrk. Hope it goes as well.
