Not been active on the forum for ages but the time has come for me to have the first of two TKRs. I have OA in both knees and have struggled on for some time now taking pain relief and accepting the word of my gp that maybe if I lost weight and took more exercise I would stand a chance of a surgeon agreeing to perform the operations on my knees. I decided that I couldnt wait until the perfect weight so I switched gps and was immediately referred to a surgeon who totally agreed I needed both knees replaced asap, no mention of weight exercise or anything else. So here I am waiting for next Thursday when I will get a new left knee. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated as I am just feeling a little nervous and excited at the same time.
