Hi @saeternes – I learned something from you! I didn't know that the robot assisted TKRs were called Mako. Anyway, as you know, I was a regular old poster-child for before and after since my right knee was done in 2017 the old way and my left was done with the robot-assisted surgery. You've read my story and I won't repeat it here, but if there is anything specific you want to know, please shout out. I'm a big fan of this surgery and I think you are going to be pleased with the results. I'm glad you are working on the bike… That will pay off during your recovery. Is your right knee bad too? Or is it just your left?

Thanks Debbra. If you could write a bit more detail about your immediate post surgery recovery, how long you used cane or other devices, when you cold walk on your own, sleeping and anything you can think of I would love to hear it.
