I'm having my 2nd total knee replacement on 5/26/2020 (THIS Tuesday...yikes!). My first was done on 6/4/2019. Same hospital (St. Mary's in Richmond, VA) and same doctor. While he has me under, he's going to manipulate my right knee because I've had trouble extending it and bending it back (getting to 90 degrees or at least to 100+). Not looking forward to the thigh pain, though, from the tourniquet. Thanks for the add so I can be a May Marvel too! Now I don't have to be alone while I recuperate. Although first week will probably be the roughest for me so I probably won't be posting anything right away. Can hope this time around, I'll have a better experience dealing with being in so much pain can't I? Guess I'll find out Tues once the pain meds wear off.
