It’s been almost a week since I had a meniscus root repair. Still feeling a bit sore and uncomfortable, taking pain meds although I’ve cut back on them. Tried to go without meds but that didn’t work. My doctor wants me to do exercises 5 times a day so I need those drugs. One of the hardest parts is being non weight bearing for 6 weeks and wearing a brace to keep my leg straight, even when I sleep! Since my bedroom and shower are upstairs I sleep on an air mattress downstairs and shower when I can! So hard scooting upstairs on my bottom! When I get to the top, standing up is very challenging! I can’t stop laughing sometimes It’s so ridiculous! Follow-up appointment on Monday so I’ll see what’s next!
