Doing better all around....

Well Im doing better all around, Im not sick anymroe.  My knee is getting better, Im walking with one cane relatively well.  My leg stil gets 'tired' when Im standing too long or when Im walking too much.  The ROM is up to 96 degrees, strength is up too.  The sharp pains I was having have calmed down, I still touch on it every now and then but its not as bad as it was. ...

Panicing for no reason?

Well Im doing better but worse.  Im doing good.  I dont have much ROM to speak of at all.   On the other hand I have been able to do an SLR since day 1 after surgery.  My leg doesnt feel like its attached to my body.  I cant get comfortable in bed to sleep, been staying up at night trying to get comfortable.  I know its only been 16 days but Im thinking I ought to be progressing more.  Then again this is a much bigger surgery than...

One week post op

Well today is one week post op.  I think im doing ok.  Yesterday I decided I was going to prayer mtg and AWANAs at church.  I think it was a little soon and I might have been a little too gung ho.  Especially since it was wet.  I almost fell twice.  The first time I caught myself on the table and the second time one of my kids fathers had to catch me. ...

had surgery

Well had surgery last Thurs.  Went fine.  That night I had a problem with my blood pressure, it dropped to 74/40.  I dont remember much of it other than when I came back to conciousness there was like 10 people in the room.  They dont know why it happened.  I stayed in the hospital 4 nights for pain control, got to come home Mon morn.  They did a dressing change before I came hme and I think I counted something like 20 staples.  The first nihgt in the hospital was hell.  Ive nevr been in so much pain in my life.  They had dropped the ball on when they were supposed to start medications...
