Well, Jo, I couldn’t not do my job, even though I’m sure you have the recovery guidelines memorized! :flwrysmile:

Jo probably created them!

Jo, it great to have you back with us. Too bad it's as a patient isn't of our head lady! It sounds like you've had a rough time of it. Thoses long stems sound so painful. I never thought about them affecting your ankle. I guess the whole body is all connected. Yay for your blood tests being normal!

Jo,
Glad you are feeling well enough to post an update.
Like Roy, I know about those stems. Was a achy for awhile, they are no longer noticeable, except on x-rays.
Continued healing!

Glad to hear you're starting to feel better, Jo. This may be one of those "slow, but steady" recoveries that we write about so much. Take good care of yourself.

I'm so pleased to see you are moving forward on this upward trajectory!!! Great to hear you are at the 8 week point (I'm weathering my first one, at 8 weeks also!)

Thanks for all the work you've done over the years, what a wonderful boost to those of us who are just having our first TKR!!

Glad to hear from you, Jo.
It sounds as if this TKR is going to take its own , sweet time, so try to relax and let it do just that.
We've missed you a lot, but don't let that make you rush back before you feel truly ready,.

Best wishes! :friends: :flwrysmile:

It is very good to hear from you, Josephine. Your unique input has been missed.

It’s a good thing, despite your pain, you were able to feed your Nurse Cats. They will get you through!

I hope you continue your successful recovery path.

So glad that you've report in. Oh yes, the tail of long stems. Been there and recovering from them now. The best advice I could give you - like you need me to tell you anything - is to be very cautious about overdoing it. Once you've overdone, it seems to take awhile to get things back under control.

Happy healing and report in on how your doing.

Good to hear you're doing well. Long may that continue.
Definitely a new computer very soon. Hope that's speedy and enjoyable.:flwrysmile:

It all sounds pretty horrendous, but glad to hear you're over the worst now. Take it easy and look after yourself. You've done so much for others, time now for you to take care of you. Wishing you no more complications and a straightforward recovery from now on.

So glad to hear from you, Jo! I know firsthand about those looooooooong stems-and know all too well the pain they can cause. I'm sending best wishes for a great recovery your way, and hope to see you soon. Take as much time as you need-we miss you, but want to see you recovered fully and full of your normal vim and vigor before you return.

Jo, I know nothing about knee implants (and I really hope I never need to), but you do, so I assume there is a good reason for yours to be so long, and once you are recovered it will be a good thing. About that recovery...hop to it. In short baby hops of course, carefully paced out, but moving forward nonetheless. It is so good to see you back here.

Hi Jo! :wave: I sign on as advisor and you leave! Was it my breath? :dubious:
Seriously, though. You've been through a lot and it's so good to hear that you will take the time needed to heal, rest and to get back up to snuff. It's a matter of practicing what you've preached, right?
You are sorely missed.. it was so nice to sign on and see the new post from you.
