Hi and Welcome to Bonesmart!

I‘m glad Bonesmart helped you through your hip replacements, please give us those dates and we’ll add them to your signature.

TKR can be a bit different, we’re glad your here!

Here’s some pre op information for you:

Hello and Welcome back!
We’re happy to read that BoneSmart helped you through your THR’s. Thanks for sharing that. Wondering if you joined us back then as a member, or if you were a lurker as I was for so long before my surgery?

Feeling nervous is normal. I believe we all experience apprehension to varying degrees. We’re here for support always, so please don’t hesitate to stop by when you’re feeling in need. We’ll be here. Best wishes for lots of comfort as you wait out the next couple of months until your TKR.
