Mine is Monday at 0630.
But yours will be a bit tougher I think. Am betting 4 days in hospital (unless you move to a rehab) - be sure to ask for *no* staples, I hear those suck during PT.
What I want to know, is will you get up and out of the room with your walker the day of surgery? I did, but it was only one knee at a time - big difference!

good luck on the surgery's gentlemen !!
Good luck on your surgery Peter! We are rooting for you.
On estimates of time, I am suggesting "to return home" so these would include rehab (if I go.)
Chances of 4 days WITH rehab are however low, since I will likely take 3 days to get there, and there is very little chance I would be willing to transfer there for one day only.
I do expect to walk the day of surgery -- we'll see.
IF I can walk, and get up and down reasonably well, then I AM VERY LIKELY COMING HOME Day 0.
If the Exparel does its job half as well as it did with the hip, this might be realistic.
