Long time lurker, first time poster here. I found the pre surgery information on this site very helpful and as of June 17, 2019, I have a new shiny metal left knee! This is post surgery day 2 and I am perched on the bed anxiously awaiting for the nurse to arrive with my release paperwork and prescriptions. I was having moments of doubt the previous couple of weeks, imagining that it was feeling a bit better and maybe I should just postpone the surgery... maybe it’s too soon and waiting it out for another couple of years would be better, etc. Ultimately I went ahead as scheduled and I have to say that things have gone well. Attentive and compassionate care and advice but it feels GREAT to be heading for the comforts of home! I had a -1/127 bend in the knee before and only have about 55 in it now which was described as tight but not abnormal. I’m looking forward to leaning on this community for support as I work on recovery.
