    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!

    I am scheduled for an MUA on 7-15-14 due to restricted ROM. I know what it is, but I'm concerned after what it is like afterward. How much pain is there? How long does it last? How soon after the MUA can I drive? Will I need a cane after the MUA?

A good operations followed by a mistake caused by not knowing what to do can ruin your life, People someone to help them recover
