    Hi Bea71 and welcome to the Versus Arthritis online Community, it is lovely to have you here.

    We have quite a number of members who have undergone knee replacement surgery and I'm sure they will be along to give encouragement for your operation tomorrow.

    There is an informative page on our website on the subject and it may provide some useful information:

    When you are able, do come back and let us all know how you get on 😃

    All best wishes

    Hi Bea71 and welcome from me too,

    I've had knee replacements with my later one being under spinal block. I found it fine as I was sedated quite heavily so all I remember now is a lovely floaty feeling, voices talking away and the sound of someone doing DIY in another room! 😁

    I hope all goes well with yours.

    Love, Legs X
