So I made it to the "other side" and it was quite an adventure. The surgical staff struggled a little bit with pain management for the first 24 hours. I am not sure if it was related to the nerve block (that I never really felt was working) or something else but they figured it out and I was up moving on post-op day 1 and was discharged post-op day 2. My PT has visited me twice and is very pleased with my progress so far, I wish I could get my knee to bend a little more. I am only at 70 degrees and there is still a great deal of swelling. So far I guess things are progressing as they should. I know I have a long way to go, I am just an impatient type A who thinks I can speed up the timetable, although in my heart I know I cannot.
