I’m having a knee replacement soon, some days I feel good and want to get on with it and have no worries but today I’m scared and feel I can’t go through with it

    Hi @nannyhicks49

    Being apprehensive is normal, have you read up on the before and after of surgery to try and prepare you? There are also some great exercises which help the recovery.

    I've heard so many great things about the surgeries and how people have got their lives back, my mum being one of them.

    Hope it all goes well

    Hello @nannyhicks49 @nannyhicks49 I know exactly how your feeling, I have my first hip surgery in 3 weeks and second one 4 weeks later, as time goes by so quickly and date for surgery getting closer I'm absolutely petrified but I know I have to have it done and can't carry on the way I am unable to walk or do anything, I think it's normal to feel this way and I know as the day draws closer I'll be a bag of nerves , but I just keep thinking about how desperate I am to ge back to a normal life and actually live, good luck with your surgery
