    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Does Anyone have god experiences with TKR
    topcat52 posted:
    I have two bad knees and are considering TKR on both. My doctor has told me that I will need it done. Cortisone shots not longer help. To do both knees, I will have the left done first followed by the right 4-6 weeks later. The right can be delayed if the left is not progressing well. I started to read the various posts and now am getting scared from all the negative posts.
