    Krystal,
    Great News! Thanks for sharing. I have three weeks until my first revision surgery date (Sept. 8th) and I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to hear of someone's success. Keep up the good work.

    Krystal, I am so happy for you

    I have been thinking about you and did some praying around your surgery date since I remembered it was the 12th and now knew it was you when you mentioned it I'm glad you kept us updated, since I was wondering how it all went and how you were doing. Amazing that it's all going so well, what great news

    Thans for the replies and prayers I wish I would have been around right after but I had some glum days to due family issues,and did not want to seem negative. but overall this has been a great change for me I knew I was so close to not having leg function anymore, and I was scared. I get around better now at one month than I did pre op. And less pain, Take Care All...
