Someone wiser than I will stop by soon with lots of good information and support, but I’m here to tell you that you came to the right place. BoneSmart will be very helpful in understanding what can be understood about what’s going on in your new knee.

You’ll find plenty of people had both knees done months apart, so there are folks to talk about the process of recovery from that point of view.

I hope it all goes well for you. Stick with BoneSmart because it is a great support.

@Surprisekr Welcome to BoneSmart! Can you tell me which knee you are having replaced in April? I'll get the information added to your signature and get you signed up in the April surgery group. It's great to go through this with others on the same journey.
