Hello All….I just wanted to drop by and let you all know how my adventure is going so far….. I had my bilateral total knee surgery in August 26th….right after surgery they were asking me to lift my legs which I did…lol. I’m guessing I was able to do it for because of the nerve blocks …I felt really good…. The first night I really only took Tylenol as far as pain meds but the next night I added in a oxy 5 and that is pretty much what I have stuck with every 4 hours.. I opted to stay an extra night in the hospital because my BP would drop a little low and I would get a little dizzy when I would try to walk. The next day (Saturday) was much better and I was able to leave. I Slept in my own bed Saturday night but because the bed is so soft it kept sinking, and I was really having a time getting out of it to hold myself up to get to the walker, (even with help it was quite difficult). So I opted to move to the power recliner which is where I stayed Sunday night and will do tonight as well. Overall my process has not been too horrible so far. Managed to get a shower with help today and I can get up from the recliner on my own and walk around some. The legs once in a while may feel a little wobble but honestly I think it was because I would get going a little faster than I probably should have. My ice machines have been a Godsend. I highly recommend them!! Tomorrow at 10 am will be my first formal post surgery PT . I am interested in how that will go as I don’t want to regress with my pain too much. But I guess we will see !!! Well, that’s my story for now…..
