    I would say that your getting sick was fated & that surgery was nnot meant to be at that time.

    Good luck!

    I was wondering if you ever had your replacement surgery. My dad had his knee replaced in May. After significant pain, a manipulation and another surgery to replace the size of something in the replacement knee, he is still in severe pain, sick to his stomach (he has lost 30lbs) and looks and feels horrible. I am extremely concerned. The surgeon says there is not any more he can do. I am hoping you had the surgery and are doing much better .
