oh my goodness Ruby's Tuesday ~ what a nightmarish start to your recovery. glad you have the pain under control. i was also not offered ice in the hospital and told to keep my leg straight. i got ice on the 2nd day (last day) of my stay when my friend asked the nurse and my friend got it herself. funny but i heard the lady in the bed next to me asking for and getting ice; however, she had her other knee replaced years ago and knew what to ask for. there's a lot of ups and downs in this recovery, but you'll feel better being home. be good to yourself and reach out here if you need advice or to vent.
