On Halloween, I had my first appointment with a new Orthopedic surgeon. He was booked for surgery until February, I asked if I could be put on a waiting list in case of any cancellations at an earlier date.... So here I go, six days from now. It is happening so fast (be careful what you ask for)! I am bone on bone. I was a runner into my mid 30's and was very active (until my knees started bothering me approximately 20 years ago), horseback riding, skiing, tennis, beach volleyball, etc. I have been steadily losing mobility since 2014 and cannot walk much without difficulty. I had a left PKR in 2016 that wasn't exactly a "home run" so I am anxious about my upcoming TKR.
