I'm 8 days out now and doing ok. I was surprised when I woke after surgery,that I had very little pain. I had the femoral block, and it worked great. My pain level stayed very low for 2 days, and that is amazing since I got up so often to pee. It seemed at least every couple of hours,day and night. I was able to get around a bit with my walker, just a few hours after getting back to my room. What a nice surprise. My doc thought I was doing well enough, to not have to spend a 3rd night in the hospital. I was so happy to see and feel, my bed. Nursing center brought me my motion machine, and I was set. Pain got a little worse after no more block, but not more than a 3 or 4 when I would get up to move. I did have quite a bit of nausia, and could not eat much, but got something different from doc and all is well again. The worst pain I've had was the first poop, which I felt like I had addressed from the moment I woke up from surgery, but It still took 3 days and hurt quite a bit. PT came for the 2nd session, last night, and I was in a lot of pain from that. It didnt seem like much at the time, but I hurt bad,for several hrs after, I could not get comfortable. I will have to learn to take it a little easier with PT . The pain meds are working pretty well to keep me comfortable, but boy have I been foggy. This is the first time that I,ve felt like I would be able to focus on the computer. It sure is hard to lay around so much, and be waited on, but I think that will pass quickly. I'm very happy to be on the other side and recovering in a new way!
