    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!

    Please add me to the December roster. Right TKR . December 4 2017. For some reason, I didnt make it onto the dec preop list, even though I wrote a post on that forum. Maybe I don't understand how this works?

    I had my surgery as scheduled on December 22. I am doing very well. I should have done this years ago. My surgeon says the right one will need to be done before long as well.

    Quick question... I see notes about a "individual recovery thread"... I've been keeping a daily blog on Wordpress that I'd like to share... how do I do that?
    Thanks!
