Hi, Well the deed is done, I had my left knee replacement last Thursday and was allowed home from hospital yesterday evening. Now the hard work starts to get my new knee going. I had an epidural and sedation and knew nothing of the operation so I am relieved and confidant now that when I get my other knee replaced next year I will not be as stressed as it really was not as bad as I imagined. In the end I had to have a bit more surgery then expected as my new knee kept dislocation so I have had to have my patella reshaped and a disc in my knee but the pain is not as bad as I imagined. Day two and four post op were the worst but even this was manageable so if any of you are waiting for joint replacements please be assured it is not as bad as you think it is going to be. Have a great day everyone. Donna
