Hi, I am schedulled to have a TKR on the 28th of this month, and I am dreading it. I have a zero pain threshold and the thought of being in so much pain is really frightening. I am not a squeemish person and take most things on the chin, but I can't deal with pain, which is clearly going to be a problem I am also concerned that I will not be able to cope once home, (especially so close to Christmas) When discharged have those of you who have already had surgery managed to get up and down stairs to bed, is it easy to change the white stockings, how soon can I expect to be walking reasonably well. I normally do a drinks party for everyone in my road just before Christmas, which is quite hard work, do you think I should forgo playing host this year, or maybe delay it until lte January? I am in North Somerset, any of you brave people near me?
Best wishes, Liz.
