    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 February Valentines!


    [​IMG]

    [​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!

Can't ride in a car for more than 20 minutes at a time..... Currently at 110 degrees range of motion (with a pain). Anyone else dealing with this?

    Well, the ROM is good isn't it, so that's a positive. Perhaps you need your doctor to review your meds, (or look at the online advice on this site) pain is horrid and distracts from everything else.
    In the first few weeks I found the vibration of a rough road hurt my knee, but that's getting better now.
