Hi all,had very hard 2days in a lot of pain with the rt.knee did some crying took Tyenol 500mg with codeine that use for my back did not tough the pain and walking is getting harder I can usually push through the pain not this time try some ice and Bengay . See the Op Dr.092013 for my preop and then to the hospital for pre op there. Sorry this is long just so many things to worry about before surgery thanks for letting me vent.Karen
We all need to vent - that is so great about this forum and being able to share with people who really understand. Sometimes the knees hurt more as we get closer to "the day" plus we are running around getting ready and having extra appointments that require more walking. Hang in there, it will pass and soon you will join us in recovery. Keep your chin up - this too will pass. Lee
Having right knee done Sept. 20th 2013.
