  1. Thanks again for the reprint of that section about hospitalization. It was very helpful. My husband's surgery is scheduled for february 11, 2011 so I wil kepp my eye out for the hospitalization kit.. Have a Happy New Year. Arlene
  2. Thank you so much for your reply. I will check out that issue (with the tree on the cover) and also speak with the anesthesiologist (?) about keeping the sedation light. Have a wonderful holiday
  3. My husband is 58 years old and has been treated for the past 3-4 years for PD. He has developed a chronic case of arthritis of his left knee, bone on bone and total knee replacement has been recommended. The last thing we want is for him to be less mobile than he is now. Currently he is using a can for most of the day and has times when he can walk straight and other times when he has freezing bouts. I know each case is different but what does research show about rehabilitation and regaining mobility after knee replacement in patients with PD. Thanks for any advice you can give.
