My advice…look forward to the procedure. Sure recovery will be tough but think about the alternative option of doing nothing! Be disciplined with the PT!!!! I'm coming up on my two year TKR anniversary and have been back to playing COMPETITIVE singles and doubles tennis for some time with no pain and full movement…..last night 3 hours of quick burst actions front, back, side to side, twisting with a two hander, and full weight bearing; even though I'm only 140 lbs. The reality of "so I can go on long walks and possibly even hikes with my Husband again" can and will happen with your perseverance!!!

Sorry your not feeling well; anxiety could be contributing to the issue. "Diagnosed with osteoporosis also a couple weeks ago so went out & bought Costco calcium/Vit. D/magnesium/zinc supplements and started with one tablet last night after dinner."…..sure you want to self prescribe without your Dr's ok? … especially the calcium supplement?? … just some thoughts….

"My pcp says they'll do a stress test" Just a fyi….I was told that the stress test will not pick up any artery blockages less then 70%…..

Yes, the stress test will only "show" blockages of more then 70%. "I plan on taking another CAC Test in about 18 months." Be careful of the repeated short term (18 mo) radiation exposure!
