You may remember that on my original surgery date of 5/17.. we hit a deer on the way to the hospital (just got the Pacifica back from the shop and it looks great though) and my surgery got cancelled on the way to the OR because I had fallen and had 2 scabs. My swelling in the knee will NOT go down. It isn't something that he told me he was worried about - he was worried about how badly I was bruised and the scabs. My knee has always looked horribly deformed from the last 2 knee surgeries.. but no matter what I do it won't go down. I've even put my entire leg up above my heart for over an hour with ice on it. No change. Me knee was swollen when I saw him about the surgery.. it's been swelling for about 7 months which is why I'm getting it fixed. I'm just paranoid. Thanks for listening to my mini rant. I needed to say it to somone who understands .. really understands how scarey this is. I do believe I am more scared than I was 2 weeks ago... and I don't know why. I am actually more comfortable with my MD selection than ever before.. but the memories of the pain are coming back and I'm having bad dreams about work.. soo stressed at work that I worked over 60 hours last week and I'm going into to work tomorrow although we are closed. I think I just need to hurry up and be sedated. :hate-shocked: Thanks, friends!
