Default Have a date with the O.R.

Operating room that is. This Mon the 30th I will be having a total knee replacement. Was supposed to have it done last spring but I wanted to get as much as I could out of it. I tore up my other knee this year dragging my deer out thru the flooded woods so I have an MRI scheduled tomorrow for that one but I already know the results of that. Another knee replacement as it too is bone on bone. So, surgery on Mon, PT starts Tues with a 3 day stay in the hospital and possibly the other knee being done in the spring. It's been a miserable year in the deer woods but next year I should feel like a spring chicken again.

Good luck on the surgery. A friend of my husband's has had one replaced. It went very well. He has to have the other one done too.

You will have a problem with metal detectors though.

Since you need both done anyway, it won't matter if they do the wrong one first

Hope all goes well Rick! We'll keep you in our prayers. I know how painful that condition is - as I went through the same thing with my Mother, and she had them both replaced at the same time when in her late 70's, and she was almost a cripple before the surgery. It gave her a new lease on life and she walked real good and without pain till she passed away at 93.

Good luck Rick. I am sure it will turn out well for you but you need to follow the PT right to the T. If you don't do what they say your outcome won't be as good. I have 2 friends who I ice fish with have that done 2 years ago. One was back on the ice feeling better than ever in 4 weeks and the other has continued to have problems because he didn't do the PT. Keep us in the loop ole buddy.

Off to the hospital in a few minutes. The biggest thing about this is NO COFFEE or anything for that matter since midnight last night. Have to be at the hospital at 8:30 for a 12:30 scheduled surgery, makes sense doesn't it? So that means it will be sometime around 4:00 or so before I get back to my room. First thing I will want is a cup of coffee.
