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.

Hello @marcibereu - and :welome:

Please will you tell us which knee is being replaced, so we can make a complete signature for you and add you to the monthly surgery thread? Knowing your surgery date will enable us to give you appropriate advice after your surgery and joining the surgery thread will let you see who else is having surgery about the same time as you are. Those people will be your recovery buddies.
Thank you.:flwrysmile:
