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

    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!

    Hello everyone! My surgery was 2/26/18. LTKR. Still having quite a bit of pain, especially at night and during/after PT. Tried to stretch my meds to 6 hours instead of 4. Doable, but certainly not as comfortable. I tried using Tylenol instead a couple times and it didn't touch it. I'd love to be able to drive, but still seem to need the meds (oxycodone). How is everyone else doing with pain? My mom is leaving Saturday and I live alone so I'm a bit nervous, but you do what you have to do. Can't wait to turn the corner to just needing tylenol. I guess it's only been 2.5 weeks, so maybe I'm expecting too much too early. My bend is good but they are pushing me to get my leg straighter, which hurts a lot. I hope you all are feeling better every day!
