Finally LTKR rescheduled for July 14th. Ohhh boy, been a long few years, with two repairs prior. I pray I heal quickly and get back in the saddle ASAP post surgery!

Hi All and best of luck to all of us "July Knee Replacement" recipenents.

I'm 62. Colorado native. Both knees dislocated as a kid and I wore a lot of casts. They said I'd be doing this: First knee replacement. Right knee will be July 6th, 2020. I'm terrified.

I think I'm ready. I've picked up my elevated toilet chair. A ice therapy machine. A leg raiser to help me lift my leg if needed. I have a walker, crutches, cane... anything else you can think of. Surgery is on Monday and I have Physical Therapy set up for Wednesday and Friday after surgery plus 3 times a week for the first 2 weeks. Now to make frozen meals for me to eat. Cooking a turkey and fixins. I cook the carcis to have turkey noodle soup.

I had arthroscopic surgery on my right knee in June 2005; a partial knee replacement on right knee in April 2006. I’ve had some pain and stiffness and now I have arthritis behind my knee cap so I need to have a total knee replacement.

I went to the surgeon yesterday for my pre-op appointment.
I didn't like my surgeon's attitude or his approach, so I have cancelled my surgery.
I will go to another surgeon.

Thank you for telling us you have cancelled your surgery, @Tanya .
I have removed your name from the July Sparklers list.

I hope you find another surgeon you are happy with. Please let us know when you have a new date.

I have moved your longer explanation to your own thread.
