knee replacement surgery

Hello:

I'm having total (left) knee replacement on January 29th and would like <support> from anyone who has had this done. I live alone (will I need help when I get home?)

<I don't know> how long I'll have to be in hospital<or if I will> get spinal or general anesthesia.

Thanks!
Sharon

Re: knee replacement surgery

* weeks from total knee replacement, 3 days in the hospital then 12 days in a re-hab for the best P.T. its' essential to be in a re-hab, I wanted to come right home, thank God I didn't, the P.T. and general care I got at re-hab was worth every day there! Good luck, this surgery is serious, it involves a slew of stuff you get to know about as you go along. After 8 weeks I am still learning. P.T. is the key and getting the rest you need, prepare for great days and bad days, stay positive!
