Look like 6 weeks from yesterday March 21 I will be having a TKR. It is a relief actually. I have been dealing with knee pain for 3 1/2 years. At first it was all about getting my knee better so that I could run, but although I hope to be able to run again, right now it is a quality of life issue. I am so tired of being in pain. Looks like my knee will be the Verilast. I have seen their commercials on TV (never thinking that was something I'd ever need) www.rediscoveryourgo.com I liked the doctor VERY much. I had read up on him before making the appointment, and although he is in the same orthopedic group (different location) than my other OS they don't think just alike. I was hoping that my new OS today would tell me the things that I wanted to hear and he did. I also used questions that I learned from this great forum to ask him. I felt like we had a mutual respect today because he knew also that I had been doing my homework. Tomorrow I will get all the wheels set into motion.
