    The adventure begins again on February 20, my second TKR. The first one, my left knee was done on May 18 2017. My only hope is that this right TKR goes as good as the left did. Only time will tell that. I don't have the anxiety (fear) like I did before the first one. I'm quite looking forward to this one.

    Wishing you well as you get #2 done. I know my first knee was visibly relieved when I got the 2nd one done. It was so thankful not to have to do all the work.

    I like the idea of a laid-back patient headed to surgery, poised for a relaxed "I've got this" recovery. :ice:

    I was looking forward to my first one in desperation :heehee:; but for my second I just knew I needed it and was ready to get it done because I knew the results could be really good. Sounds like that's your mindset.
    Don't be shy about asking questions or seeking support just because your a "second timer." :)

    I think the 'not knowing' is a big reason for the anxiety before our first tkr. Now, you know what to expect, that you can do it, and that it's better afterwards!

    Won't it be great to have two good, strong knees? I can't wait!
