Persistant pain

Sep 28, 2012 - Comments: 0

Well I posted after 3 weeks about pain in the thigh and calf.  Here I am at 6+ weeks and still have the same issue. Surgeon this week said 15% of patients typically have this issue. (WHY ME!).  He sent me to my family doctor to discus sleeping medication and pain control medication.  My family doctor is much more concerned and suggests at 6 weeks most of the pain should be manageable and I should be fine sleeping.  Not so.  As I told the surgeon I have basically not slept at all since surgery.  One night I had 5 hours!  yeah. that was last week.

I am quite frustrated because I have been having so much trouble rehabbing my knee after the release of my scar tissue last year.

In the words of Gloria Gaynor..."

I long as I know how to live..."

Well, I'm aware of my limitations once more.....and you know it's pretty rough when it happens prior to sipping your first cup of coffee in the morning!
Yesterday was an up and down day....literally. 
I've taught myself to not jump straight out of bed in the mornings....especially if I'd had one of those amazing dreams where everything is 'normal'....according to people without knee issues.  Which is weird, because yesterday wasn't one of those mornings. ...
