First a BIG THANKS to you all. I've gotten over most of my angst, well as much as I can. I'm now concentrating my feeble brain on the future, how well I'll feel, what I'll be able to do, like tie my right shoe myself. Rest assured the PT aspect I know is the most important part. I had to do 8 weeks of rehab years ago after knee surgery so I know the benefits. Thanks you have really helped to get my brain in gear and ready. I had the preop thing today, get blood work done Thursday, have my date on the 25th. So..... onward to not limping!!
