Right knee, They told me partial knee, but if they get in there and find more damage it will be a total knee. Crazy sounding to me. I guess we will just say right total knee :/

Thank you for responding about your surgery.

What they've told you does make sense. If it looks as if your knee has more damage than predicted, it's better to do a total, so they don't have to go back later and do a second surgery.

I've done your signature now and I've also added you to the November Nimbles surgery list, which is where you'll be able to see who else is having surgery about the same time as you are.
