I saw my new dr. today and liked her a bunch. I have to have a total knee replacement done on my rt knee before Feb. 7th. She wants me in as soon as my primary can clear me. She will do a rotating knee rather than fixed like my left knee. It should hopefully heal better.

Turtle, you still have that cold? Careful it doesn't go to bronchitis or pneumonia, ok? Take care. S2

Still planning on the 3rd of Feb. I had my pre-op tests done yesterday. I have had a cold for 2 weeks and hope it is gone before surgery.

Turtle, having had your left knee done already, you have an idea of what to expect. Having the other procedure and a doctor you like and trust will help even more. Sunny will love to help you recoup too. Angels are coming to be with you. Hugs

Turtle; It's great you found a Dr. you like. The medical field has come such a long way. I'm curious about the material the replacement will be made of. Before the accident I was a machinest of 25 yrs and made replacment body parts out of Titanium.
