@Atlas_aus, for you the "proper forum" is the Knee Replacement Pre Op Area to start your own thread about your personal journey.

I’m Carrie and I’ll be having at least a left knee replacement on May 14th. Headed over to the pre-op forum to make my intro post there.

Left TKR May 14th.

Nervous because besides all the pain in the knee, there's also pain away from the joint that's significant and limiting. After 3 years of seeing a bunch of different doctors, PT's and other medical professionals, and trying just about every option that exists short of TKR .... no one is really sure what's causing that pain or what will fix it. The going thought is that it's referred from the joint. Knee is bad, so I still need the replacement, but if it doesn't relieve the pain outside the knee, I won't be that much further ahead.

Guess I get to lead the pack with May 1st. =P Had my first two TKRs in late 2017. T’was so much fun that I’ve decided to have revisions. Stupid pain and inflammation. >_> Will begin with my ouchiest (right knee) at OHSU in Portland, OR. Sure hope it works this time!

Elaine

P.S. My thread can be found under recovery, though I’m also a preop-er.

Going in May 6th for TKR on the left side. Been looking forward to this for 5 years now. I think I'm prepared and my girl is taking the week off to help me once I get home. I've learned some valuable insight for recovery from this forum that I plan to apply to my situation. Thanks for all the folks that took the time to share their stories. Hope to do the same as time goes on.

Hi I am having a Right TKR as a revision of a PKR from last year on 13 May 2019. My earlier story is already a thread in the recovery area
