    Hi that is good news.

    Usually they have a rough idea of when op will be and then at pre-op you can say if any dates are no good ie due to hols etc

    Hope you both enjoy the footie.

    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.
