Alot of us are having surgery in June, July, August so I though it would be easier to keep track of people before they jump to the other side if we list our surgery dates in one place.

Hi,
I'm on for June 12. My stress level is way up there, but I'm glad I'm doing it.

Re: Post Your Surgery Date

I'm scheduled for June 16 for BTKR. Looks like it's going to be a grand summer for lots of us. Now if I can just get through the mother/son dance at my son's wedding this weekend! Oh, it hurts just thinking about it!

Re: Post Your Surgery Date

June 20th is when I will join the new knee club. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I am so looking forward to having my life back.

Re: The Operating List - post your date here so we can keep tabs on you!

BTKR on June 13th. Gosh, can't believe it is three weeks tomorrow since I had the surgery. Amazing what three weeks can bring. Haven't had to use the walker in a week, although it makes a lovely quilt stand and haven't had to use my cane around the house for three or four days, and I am not hanging on to anything to walk. I had to laugh while I was cleaning up after supper tonight. My husband asked if I could just give him a small grimace while I was cleaning up the kitchen. I think it was the first time I had realized how much better I really am and how quickly I got better. I still have a long ways to go but I know now I will get there. Rowdy

Re: The Operating List - post your date here so we can keep tabs on you!

The best of luck to all of you folks! I had my bilateral TKR way back on November 8th--coming up on six months now---at times still a little bit stiff at times but cycling to school and umping HS baseball games. Life si now so much better, and I am sure that it will be for you, too. Remember, the surgery is the "easy part"; the rest is up to you.. How badly do you foks want to reclaim your life? How badly do you want to defeat arthritis? PT is you friend, but the friend will require hard work---but the friend (PT) will help you reclaim what you lost.

Re: The Operating List - post your date here so we can keep tabs on you!

I had a right TKR on February 29th. At 13 weeks out I'm doing pretty well - can do pretty much anything I want to. Every now and then I overdo it and my knees (sometimes BOTH of them) let me know it. So I guess I still have some swelling and muscle strength to gain in the new knee leg. But, I am VERY happy that I chose to have the surgery when I did....before I limped around too long and hurt something else.

July 14th - I think - if I don't chicken out - ughhhhhhh

You won't chicken out and you'll be fine! I was pretty weirded out the last few days before my LTKR, and the morning of it I was a bit panicked...but it was all fine. And you will be too! Waiting is the hardest part.

OK, it did not say post your knee date.
I am having my right hip replaced tomorrow June 6th. Weird to see that in print.

Mine is August 12 - plenty of time to become even more scared than I am! Might be just a partial - surgeon says he has to have both ready just in case.

Re: The Operating List - post your date here so we can keep tabs on you!

Another newbie, but have been lurking here for some time. My LTKR is scheduled for Aug 11. I've been exercising the knee, (had the PT at our local "Y" recommend a whole series of exercises for the upper & lower body). I have read the "book" several times, have a platform built for my recliner and have been practicing going up & down stairs on crutches.

My OS say he uses a Stryker Scorpio NKG (I think those are the letters) replacement joint.

Re: The Operating List - post your date here so we can keep tabs on you!

TRHR on July 03. I started trying to get scheduled the middle of April, 08. I've known that I've needed THR since last September but had to juggle trips, 2nd opinions, scheduling & a change of cities & doctors to end up in Memphis, TN. The ortho nurse said that I am a good candidate & shouldn't have much post OP trouble; Maybe I should cross my legs for good luck????? NOT--- -LOL. Hope the THR improves my golf game from pathetic to miserably bad.
I am starting to get a little edgy about this, I've only had one other operation- a caterac removed last year & all went well. Good luck to all.
