I had total knee replacements in both knees at the same time- I'd see take the general!

Will be wishing you well and happy birthday when it comes.

If you have a epidural you will recover quicker and you will be giving a sedative as well so you won't know much about it darling.xxx

Definitely recommend an epidural. No pain and faster recovery. Good luck! M x
