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 time 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!

Welcome to our latest and all May Marvels!




Feel free post your surgery date in this thread, and we will add you to the list. However, please start a thread of your own in the Pre-Op Knee Section to post comments or questions and share your journey toward knee replacement.

We want to share your journey with you, so please start a thread of your own. To start a new thread, click on this link for a tutorial: Starting a new thread and posting

This instruction is for desktop and laptop users, so if you're using a smart device, the screens may be a little different. But the process is the same. Be sure to keep your thread title fairly short and descriptive of your situation. People frequently search for topics by the thread titles. You can always change the thread title later if you would like something different. By starting your own thread, you and your questions and concerns will receive the attention they deserve.

For additional help and tutorials, look in the white toolbar at the top of the page, click on "Help/Info," then click on "How to Use This Forum." You'll find lots of info there to help you navigate the forum.

We are here to help in any way we can because We Care!

I'm having TKR on May 17th, also! Looks like there are a few of us.

I just found this forum and I appreciate all of the information here. I like my surgeon, but it's been hard to get information about preparing for the surgery, so I appreciate reading about what items I should buy, what to expect to be able to do right away, etc.

Just a question...am I supposed to start a thread even if I don’t have specific questions right now? And it would be in regular knee pre-op, or in May Marvels?

I wasn’t sure if I was required to start my own post or if I could just jump in on different threads/discussions.

Yes, @LateRainNYC , please start your own thread in the Knee Surgery Pre-Op Area , so we can get to know you and people can talk to you.
We have articles to give you, to help you prepare for surgery, and you can ask any questions that might occur to you in your new thread.

The May Marvels is not a thread for chatting. It's essentially just a list, where you can see who else is having surgery the same month as you are.
