My son at 39 was just diagnosed with CMML and will be coming to Mayo for 4 months to prepare for and receive it. His dad and I will be his caregivers at the Hope House while he is there. Who had been through this?

Hi Teresa. I had bilateral tkrs 5 months ago next week. It really has gone well. I went in slightly naive as well, but my optimism and determination pulled me through. Sounds like you are all set. I felt
anxious as my surgery came closer too. It didn't help that people continually told me how brave and courageous I was. 🤔 It makes you wonder if you made the right plan at times. But for me it went well, and I am so GLAD and thankful I chose this route. I tended to think of my surgical knees as one instead of two separate surgeries. Each knee reacts a little differently. I am back to swimming and weight class 5 times a week. My walking is fluid and pain free. Get ready to work hard afterwards. It will be your full time job. You go, girl! Good luck.
I feel like I was exactly where you are now. It's been nearly 4 years on Arimadex and no recurrence. I pushed through and stayed on the drug religiously. I forced myself to continue weight class and swim aerobics, figuring I couldn't hurt anymore than I already did. I think my body has quit fighting it, and the pain is gone. My advice is to stay with it. If got better for me, hopefully it will for you too. I love my pain free life again and treasure every day at 71!

My symptoms seem to have gone away as time has gone on. I've been on them going on 4 years. Glad I've stuck with them . You can do this!

I would have it looked at. My legs broke our th a bright red rash. I was treated with a special creme I was prescribed. It really cleared it up. It was likely caused by an allergy to something used before or during surgery.
