    I have brought forward this month's list so that you can easily see who your surgical buddies are.


    Welcome to our latest and all April Rainbows!

    [​IMG]
    You are now an Honor Graduate [​IMG] from your pre-op days! You've entered the recovery phase of your replacement journey to that place called “Normal”, and you are now eligible to be a [​IMG] Recovery Club member.

    Pre-op surgery team members are automatically recovery team members. If you were not on the pre-op list, please join your fellow travelers in this month’s post-op club by requesting your name and surgery date be added to the roster.

    Being a team member will allow you to share your [​IMG] questions, concerns, and experiences; give one another [​IMG] support and encouragement; [​IMG] vent, whine, and [​IMG] shed some tears, if necessary; and have some [​IMG] fun and laughs together. (Please do the above in one another’s recovery threads. And if you find your fun and laughs taking over an individual thread, toss them over to the Social Room to keep your recovery thread on target.)
    Recovery is a long journey [​IMG] made shorter and easier when made with [​IMG] fellow travelers. So, start you membership in this special club today by requesting that your name and surgery date be added to the list!

    Well, my PT evaluated me yesterday after20 sessions.3 times a week. Said my rom was at 133, extension is 1. Said strength was good. I’m going on 9 weeks out now. He said my balance on one leg was poor. ( I said I was always the guy in the yoga class who can’t do the “tree” without holding on to something.) Said he don’t understand why I still have pain all the times (and sometimes in the 8 range (stabbing pain from inside the knee)) He sad normally people discontinue at this point and he tells them to go to gym but he knows I do that now. He recommended 8 more sessions at twice per week to work on balance and strength. I don’t have a problem with that it insurance approves. I’m so happy I found this group because no one else would really understand what I have been going through.

    @hennypenny, yes, you can join----however, I need to know which knee you had replaced and the date of your surgery before I can add you.
