    Hello - Please go to our publications section and have a look at 'Surgery and Arthritis' - on page 9 there is a whole load of Qs to ask your surgeon. Thats the quickest way to get a reply quickly this week. If you want to discuss this further then please ring the Helplines free number on 0808 800 4050 or email [email protected] We can send you a whole bundle of info about TKR we can send out too - just send a private message or email your home address but it won't get there by Thursday tho. Hope that helps.
