Please don’t get frustrated about progress on day 11. Your body still hasn’t figured out all what happened to it. I was certainly not walking independently by day 11.I’m frustrated I’m not walking independently by now.
This is where we come in. There are lots of members’ threads to read, people going through this recovery needing support. We help each other.I’m really lonely now, don’t really have anyone to talk to.
You're going through a lot of emotional stress, as well as physical trauma and this recovery plays havoc with your emotions anyway. Post op blues is a reality - be prepared for itKnee wise I’m not sure I’m making the progress I should be. I’m frustrated I’m not walking independently by now. I’m really lonely now, don’t really have anyone to talk to. Gotta figure out how to get groceries soon.
