I think our personalities come into play in this recovery. Unfortunately I am a complainer (I’m not proud of that) and I don’t like inconvenience. While my recovery did not have complications and honestly was quite average, and almost all knee replacement recoveries are difficult, I think I found mine to be more difficult than someone else having a very similar one might. A while back my daughter suggested I google Highly Sensitive Person. Oh my, it SO described me! I got the book out of the library and in the beginning of the book were 24 statements about us that we were to answer agree or disagree. I agreed with 20 of them! It shed new light on a lot of things, but also my recovery and how I handled the experience.
