    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!

    Yesterday I was in the Emergency Room with a massive itchy rash on my torso, front and back. I was diagnosed with severe allergic reaction, and given a cortisone shot and prednisone and two antihistamines. I was advised to see an allergist to see what I am allergic to. I went off codeine 4 days ago, as I suspected it was causing the rash, which was mild at first. No new drugs or foods. I am sensitive to costume jewelry. Is it possible I may have nickel allergy to the knee replacement? I have seen many cases documented online. Now I am concerned about this most uncomfortable situation. Anyone have any experiences with rash after TKR?

    Can I be added to the list please. I had my tkr on 29th October. Thank you. Everything seems to be going well. Had my clips out today. Despite doing exercises, the knee seems really stiff on occasions and I’m using ice packs regularly to try to reduce the swelling so I can exercise more freely. Any tips greatfully received!!
