Well everything went really well the day of surgery. Surgery was at 7:30 this morning and I was home in my chair with 'toes above nose' and the ice machine running by 1:30. Due to the nerve block I was in very little pain. In the I meantime was careful not to do too much or to do anything stupid to aggravate my baby knee. Day 2 continued to be good, I did take my first couple of doses of Norco, but pain was still well controlled. Day 3 the nerve block ran out and the pain is really bad. On top of that the Doctor called and really wants me to take the narcotics only at night to sleep! Not gonna happen when I hurt this much. and I can't even think about even gentle stretches when I'm at an 8-9 on the pain chart. I can see we will be having a battle about meds. Day 4 today and things are a bit better. Not going completely without the Norco but single doses spread out further are working for the moment, hopefully things continue on this track.
