"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!!!

Hello! I'm scheduled for my left TKR on March 16, 2020. I had my right one done in 2010 and vowed never to do it again but alas, here I am and making myself sick over it.

My surgery is scheduled for Monday, March 15th. I'm having a total replacement on my left knee. I work from home, so I'm really hoping that I will be able to begin working again long before the normal six weeks are up. If I don't work, I don't get paid!

Hi all! I just scheduled my TKR on my right knee for March 10th. I'm super nervous. My 50th birthday is in late May and I had planned a biking trip to Mallorca which obviously can't happen now (quite bummed about that). But, I'm hoping to at least be well on my way to recovery by then.

He’sssss baaaaack....
Hello again, I was here two years ago, oct 2017. Had right TKR that failed when my kneecap dislocated and my quad tore....it was ‘repaired’ in Dec 2017 yet it’s never been right. I was scheduled for the other knee the following March but couldn’t face the possibility of going through that again. I don’t mean to discourage anyone as it was a once in a million and I happened to be that one. Well, a few weeks ago my knee buckled and I went down hard breaking my elbow. I’m hoping it will heal enough not to push out my date. The other knee has become so unbearable it’s now either suffer always or go for it. I‘m tentatively scheduled for March 4th. Let’s do this!
