    Hello fellow hobblers:

    I'm getting ready for a left TKR Monday, after having undergone a right knee TKR in June, 2015.

    I hope the surgery goes as well as it did for me last time. I'm older and heavier. Ick. Same surgeon. My right knee is doing great. I am so glad to have this forum.

    Navigating this app on a phone is different! I can't remember how to create the signature.

    Welcome back, although I'm sorry you need another TKR. I'm assuming you mean you're having a left TKR this Monday, August 5th? If so, we'll add it to your signature. Please keep us posted and see you on the other side soon!

    Thx for the good thoughts! I am nervous. Trying to sleep. Chewing on my fingers instead, just like I did when I was 8 or 9 years old

    You’ll do fine, remember you are your own advocate, keep up with your meds, and follow Bone Smart

    I haven't seen you posting on the other side yet, so am wondering how everything went.

    @MissNoodle and fans of MissNoodle - I have moved her first post-op post to a new recovery thread you can find here:
    MissNoodle is in recovery!

    You can find her there with her new knee.
