If this is what a partial feels like, I have no idea how anyone manages with a total. Makoplasty (robot-assisted) was done yesterday, 6/19. I'll be spending 3 nights in the hospital (as I had planned) but it is a lot more painful than I was expecting, frankly. It takes all my effort just to stand up, and it hurts all the time. My god, the pain! And I've had a C-section! People say the 2nd day is the worst, and I hope that's true, because today has been awful. I'll be going to a rehab facility (again, planned on because I live alone and have a small, unruly dog), but there is NO WAY I could go home on Saturday. I need assistance, a walker, and a good 15 minutes to get to a toilet less than 10 feet away from my hospital bed, and I still haven't showered yet. I'll be brief, because even typing this is exhausting. I just don't understand how (some) people bounce back so quickly, and I should have known I wouldn't be one of them.
