    4 more days until you begin the road to recovery with a brand new knee! Please keep us posted as you recover, and feel free to ask any questions you may have. See you soon on the other side!

    Hello @WEstieluv - and :welome:
    I see you've already posted your surgery date in the September Sapphires group. Bottomshollow will add your name to the September surgery list next time she updates it.

    I've put your surgery date into your signature, so we'll be able to see it after your surgery and give you advice appropriate to your stages of recovery.

    Meanwhile, here is some pre-op reading, to help you prepare for your surgery:

    Longevity of implants and revisions: How long will my new joint last?

    If you are at the stage where you are planning to have surgery but are looking for information so you can be better prepared for what is to come, take a look at these links:
    Recovery Aids: A comprehensive list for hospital and home
    Recliner Chairs: Things you need to know if buying one for your recovery
    Pre-Op Interviews: What's involved?

    And if you want to picture what your life might be like with a replaced knee, take a look at the posts and threads from other BoneSmarties provided in this link:
    Stories of amazing knee recoveries
