Hi Everyone I'm scheduled for a total right knee replacement July 1st 2019! I just turned 57 and I have been in pain for the past 10 + years. These past 2 years have been really hard. Both of my knees are bone on bone. I have become bowlegged from them being so bad. I'm limited to where I can go. It seems the last 5 years I have not been anywhere but the store and visiting. I can't remember the last time I went anywhere that required walking. My Doctor is doing the right knee July 1st and my left knee before December. I have a 26 year old son who is Autistic and I care for him, so even if my Doctor would do them at the same time ( which he won't) that would not be an option for me. To say I'm scared is a understatement. I'm petrified but I'm more scared not to get them done because my quality of life stinks right now. I'm trying to have a positive attitude but Depression has set in. I'm trying to do what I can to build myself up. I don't have much of a support system. My husband is on the road most of the time but will be home for the first week and my daughter will be here for a couple days but will have to return home for work. She lives 2 hours away. I found this site and decided to try it. I'm hoping to find some support here people who understand, excited for a new beginning but scared of the road ahead.
