I get my tkr at the end of this month,I have followed this forum for a while and I am sure I will for many months to come,Many of you have talked very candidly about your experiences which I am finding very helpful, however, I have yet to see any one mention the insertion of the spinal anasthetic. A few years ago I had a lumbar puncture(unrelated to my knee)and it was AWFUL.So guess what, the thing that keeps me awake at night is worrying about the spinal.I know it is a means to an end and has to be done, please tell me (honestly) what it entails, ignorance is not bliss and I would much rather have the truth, Am I worrying about nothing? or is it truly awful?either way give me the facts!
