    I don't know if it's too soon to post, since I'm still waiting on my first, but my second knee is scheduled for September 4.

    Thank you for moving me from July to September. Still recovering from the procedure I had to have in July. I'm hoping this was good psychological prep for the upcoming TKR!

    Just scheduled my 2nd TKR (Right) on September 13, 2019. The first one (Left TKR in June 2016) didn't go very well, so I'm a little nervous, but I can't stand the pain any longer! Evidently, I'm in a very small minority of patients with a genetic disposition for extremely aggressive scar tissue post-op that no amount of physical therapy (PT) can prevent from setting into the joint.
