    Feeling a bit nervous due to severe immuno-suppression but also a fair bit excited to be going on a journey that will enable me to walk properly again.

    My right knee has gradually become more and more valgus over the last couple of years. So painful to walk on now and I walk like a drunken sailor hah. My consultant said its 20% valgus now, not helped by my very flat feet.

    My TRHR was in June 2009, so I am on a 10 year cycle lolol.

    20 degrees valgus? Oh my goodness. How is the other leg? Well, anyway, chime in after surgery and let us know how you're doing.
