Hi Folks,
I'm new on the site, but I'm sure with all the good advice that is floating around I am going to be in good company; advice is what I need tons off. I suffer Arthritis, but on the positive side I am getting an op' on my right knee which is now 'bone on bone'. I too, am on a concoction of analgesics to quell the pain, but on occasion they do not work full strength, so some days are 'not too good'.
I would appreciate word from someone who has gone thru' a complete knee replacement for a detailed account of the operation. I'm sure, I'd love other comments too.

Re: Moneybunch

Hi Moneybunch -- welcome!

You will get plenty of sympathy around here as most folks have chronic pain, but you might get more responses to your specific question on the Knee and Hip board. They also have a couple of stickies on the top of the page that give good suggestions on how to prepare for knee surgery.

Good luck!
