Many Thanks

Posted , 8 users are following.

I'm so glad I found this site everyone has been so kind. I'm here in the states and we don't have such a site as this. It helps for someone to respond n know exactly what u r talking about cause they have experience the exact same thing. Sometimes even the Doctors don't know what we r referring to. So even though I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel I know the light is there at some point. So I would encourage everyone to ask their questions no such thing as a dumb question. Thanks again my tkr friends from a distance.

    It is always good to hear different people,s experience s from around the world. I have found the forum very interesting and encouraging.As you said Doctors/Consultant haven't got the patients view. I have had blisters come up on both my recent TKR and the other in January. So reassuring to know you are not alone.

    I have told my consultant and Doctors Surgery about this website. So they can recommend it to others prior to their surgery. Also books / blogs patients have written. Good luck, Hope you feel a lot better soon.

      Hey Bebe ... let me know when you come to London would be great to meet up ... we could compare knees!!! I love the Big Apple so understand it would be difficult to leave ... same for me in London but I'm only 30 minutes away and I still work there so don't get the chance to miss it!!! Have a great Friday and a good weekend. Xx

    Hi Bebe. I am also in the states. I live near Cincinnati, ohio. I'm so glad I found this forum! It has helped me keep my sanity when I thought I wouldn't get thru. I have received honest, heart-felt and truly inspiring answers to my questions and I try to answer anyone I think I may be able to help or inspire in return. We should all have a tkr reunion one day! !
