Welcome to BoneSmart, glad you joined us!

I have added your surgery dates to your signature for you, thanks for posting them.
Hope your left knee is doing well, let us know about your recovery.

Making the decision whether or not to have surgery and preparing for surgery can be easier once you have done your research and know what lies ahead. Here are some tools that can help you decide what is best for you.
