    I was just cleared for my right knee replacement revision for Jan 25. I have to admit, I am a little nervous this time around but I stand on faith so its going to be alright. Pre Op tests went fine so now just waiting for the day!

    Having the preop testing done and a date for your surgery is half the battle won! Go girl!

    @stareyes What date was your original TKR. I'll pop that date and your revision date in your signature for you.
