put it off as long as possible.
am scheduled for the right TKR. have been trying to get it done for about 6 years. the ortho doc told me to put it off as long as possible. got the chicken shots in the knee, got arthroscopic done. at this point the doc said you need a TKR. this was NOV 2011, almost a year later i am having it done. i have been complaining about this for almost 8 years. after the right one is done i will have the left one done. i look forward to no more pain every day.
