    I agree, Mary. I think  new posters need to realize that we're not doctors, just people who share similar experiences who offer support and coping strategies. Just because I have 2 new knees doesn't qualify me to diagnose anyone's symptoms. After almost 4 months since my surgery, I'm still baffled myself by so much I'm feeling and going through!

    Funny you should create this thread, I have just posted an answer to someone without a diagnosis who wants an answer regarding liver scan, I did point out we are just a group of people with a little bit of time to spare who have possibly been down a similar route and can offer a modicum of support.

    I also find it strange that they would consider an online forum somewhere to get answers on there health, be a bit like asking my 10 year old grandson what's wrong with my electrics on my caravan, well surely he should know

      Brilliant at my age 72 in life I've come across a lot of people who come to you for answers not necessarily about health and you find out later they have asked the same question to another friend and if the answers the one they want they take that advice lol I came onto thus forum after my TKR and was and still are for the advice given on here cos the ones who answer are the ones whose been down that dark post operation road Thanks people xxx

    Thanks, Mary for posting this. I read all the new discussions but there are so many that I cannot respond -- we are here to support each other while going through aTKR or having some kind of problem that someone else had experienced during their recovery and can guide us.  Like someone else said we cannot diagnose people.  Many thanks to all the people that take their time to answer each and every time.  Best wishes to everyone.
