    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!


    Yours in health,

    I am new here. I am recovering from the surgery. I love to walk but find it very hard now. I am seeking some support as I get depressed about the slow recovery. I was a walker before and can you tell me how long the swelling and pain last? I am getting a lot of mixed opinions on this. Thank you.

    Your doctor should have told you this kind of surgery takes months to heal from, not weeks. Your surgery was less than a month ago. Give yourself time to heal.
