Well it has been a long time coming …. I am going on seven weeks out and am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Surgery went very well. Hospital and Staff were excellent. Food was very good. Stayed in the hospital for 2 nights with hubby staying with me. The hospital is over an hour from our home. First few weeks were a blur. I started PT the Monday after surgery on Tuesday. My OS wanted me to have PT on Friday, the day after getting home but I was sick at my stomach so cancelled. My PT is very gentle and listens to me. He asks me how I felt after the last session and if really sore then he does not add anything new. I can't remember my numbers but he says they are very good. I know my ROM is 112-114. I was able to lay my legs flat right after surgery. I will say that this has been a hard journey. Much harder than I expected which is why I waited to start posting my recovery. Just a few weeks ago I was regretting having bilateral - it is just so hard. I am still on pain meds with begging my OS. I now am taking Tramadol. I did get a ice machine in the hospital and it had an adapter that added the extra pad for the both knees. I used it consistently for at least two weeks but the thing just freezes me to death. I now only use ice packs about 3-4 times a day. They still make me cold which adds to the pain. Have any of you had pain in the groin area? I find that pretty painful especially if I lie flat. Sleeping a little better just the last couple of days. I wasn't able to sleep in our bed at the first but now I can sleep there for 4-5 hours before having to get up and walk and then to the recliner. We have an adjustable bed and it feels much better when I raise the head. We have a basement entry house and my husband would have to bring the car around to the back door to load me for PT. It was tearing up the yard pretty bad. Now I am able to walk down the 13 basement steps and back up. I use a cane when we go out but walk around the house with no aids. Starting to do a little housework. I will post more later. Any questions, just ask. I am sure I have left a lot out.
