vacation from PP

Well the time has finally arrived. Tomorrow,Monday,the 5th, I am set to have both knees replaced. No electronic devices allowed in the hospital, so I will not be posting for a while. I have been too busy with getting stuff done before the surgery to have posted much over the last weeks. In my brief survey of threads this morning,it's good to see that nothing changes. Same people, same arguments..
I hope to return after a week, or so.

We all hope your surgery is uneventful. Strange policy for no electronic devices in a hospital.

Best of luck with surgery, MS!

The consensus among friends and family who have had knee replacement over the past 5-6 years is that they wish they did it sooner. Just keep up with the PT! (Edit: I see Tom beat me to it. )

Good luck with the surgery!

We will need a youtube video with a spectacular NBA style jump shot to show the surgury a success

First thing my grandmother did when she had the same procedure 20 years ago. I think she also worked in a backflip

Good luck MS, hope it goes smoothly and recovery is quick! A family member had his replaced and within a couple weeks was going up and down stairs like he was half his age whereas he could barely walk prior -- seems like a pretty big life changer.

Thanks for the kind wishes.
One of the requirements was that I discontinue the Melaxacam that I was taking to relieve the pain in the knees for 2 weeks prior to surgery.
One thing for sure, the Rx was doing quite a bit of good.
No other Nsaids allowed, either, so its alcohol in various forms. It kills the pain, and is quickly out of the system.
