    "All for one and one for all!!!"

    March brings us 'round to the first of our monthly teams - the March Musketeers. Three of our members called themselves the March Musketeers back in 2010 and the whole program of monthly teams just took off from there.

    If you're having surgery in the month of March, please post your date and any other information you'd like to share in this thread.

    It always helps to have a group of BoneSmarties going through surgery and recovery together. You can support each other in true Musketeer fashion and even brandish a few swords as you reach milestones in recovery!

    So....OUT with the BAD.....and IN with the GOOD! Let's get the Musketeers rallying together and ensure success for one....SUCCESS FOR ALL!!!

    @TILTNTURN Happy to hear you will have your surgery in March. @Josephine has posted a string about dislocation possibilities after hip replacement, and on the thread it has videos of getting in and out of a car, getting in and out of bed etc. I can't locate the thread right now, but I am sure she will send it for us.
