Holly, I'm glad to hear that all went well with your knee & that you are back to walking again. I hear that PT is the most important part of getting back to normal. Be a good girl & listen to the Dr. & therapists!

Holly, doing the "happy dance" for you and your new knee. Glad everything is working out so well for you. I had an Aunt who had a knee replacement and she called herself " Bionic Evelyn" thanks for reminding me of that--I miss her.
Holly - you must be a very good patient - going home so soon Glad your new knee is cooperating with you. So, did you think "why did I wait so long?" Seems that is all I hear from people who have had knee replacement. Good to "see" you here - thank you for the update, I was wondering about how you were getting on.

So glad to hear you're doing well! I have knee replacement to schedule, originally was putting off for a year, until right before retirement. Well I went to the Retirement Office last week, to find out I can retire this October, can you hear me squealing?!?!?! Somehow I miscalculated about retirement possibility. So, plan now is, AFTER Branson, surgery in October, which will use up my sick time, and retire Nov 1, or perhaps, surgery in Nov and retire Dec 1...still debating...anyway, any tips on pre-surgery preparation??
Glad to hear you are doing great. I had a replacement in March and am doing great also. The most important thing is to do your exercises. I still do mine everyday and it is so nice to be pain free. Aliquilt- my Dr. gave me exercises to do before surgery for about 6 weeks. I think that helped- also he glued my incision. I didn't have either staples or stitches. Good luck.
