    Are you having surgery in the month of May? Welcome to the May Marvels....a team just for you with others that will be having surgery and recovery right along with you. Give us your surgery date and maybe a few facts about yourself and we'll get you on the list. As the month goes by, the list will grow and maybe you'll find a few folks to partner up with for recovery.

    Please join the team and help support your fellow BoneSmarties through the lead-up to the Big Day and the recovery afterwards!

    I am scheduled for my left TKR on May 6, 2 days after Joint Replacement Awareness Day. I am guessing that I will be very AWARE that weekend. I am also scheduled to do my right TKR on July 8. While I have had many surgeries in the past, I expect each of these to be full of shock and awe and pain. Perhaps my biggest fear at this point is having the new opioid restrictions cause my OS or PCP to cut me off before I am able to handle the pain - I've already told the OS that I'm a certified wimp when it comes to pain.

    I have been reading on this forum for over 2 years and am so grateful for all of the expertise and first-person accounts. They have given me the courage to finally step up and face my need for this surgery.
