Hi Everyone, Boy my nerves almost had me disappear to Italy rather that actually go through with this... but my husband, Doctor, and physician’s assistant held my hands and got me through this. Surgery was 6:30am on 11/6, now it’s 3:45am 11/7. I’ve walked 4 times, put a fair amount of weight on it whilst standing to wash my hands & brush my teeth, and i am doing ankle pumps (the stretch feels oh so good) and attempted 2 knee slides (2”). The physical therapist may be shocked when I meet them? The one thing I can tell you is that I was in so much pain before, that fresh out of surgery with pain meds has less ache of how I felt just sitting around with no pain meds before. From what I hear the next few days may be the “hazing week” as far as pain is concerned, but knowing there’s an END DATE to pain and disability is really exciting. I’ve had a bad knee 16 years from sports, last 10 debilitating from meniscus removals... and 7 years of doctors telling me I was too young for a TKR. Now, this cyborg is ready to work! Thanks to the folks who gave me support here too. I opted for general anesthesia with regional nerve block rather than the spinal. Have a Stryker Triathlon installed by phenomenal sports medicine surgeon via robotic Mako table. I’ll add more details after I see this hero during his rounds today. Blessings to all the other November Nimbles!
