    I wish you all the best with this. You are very brave to go for a second.

    I think it's fine that you are worried. Once you admit that to yourself you can then start to deal with the fear.

    Keep in touch

    Take care

    Sarah

    You know what to expect and what to do to prepare, so stop worrying! You'll be fine.

    I've had both of mine done and have been much better since.

    Best Wishes. x

    my tkr is 5 days behind me so I really understand your trepidation. I cannot tell you it is easy but I can tell you it will pass.Try not to worry,I spent my own time batch cooking to keep busy, I am home now and so glad I did, (at least I have decent food!) It will pass and you will be totally fine, good luck.
