Not sure if the fear and trepidation will eventually give way to excitement, but I am plowing forward! The knee has been fairly comfortable (tolerable pain and swelling) and I was wondering why in the world I am doing this, then it gave out going up the steps to remind me! Ha! What should I be doing at this stage? What was the most helpful piece of advice (or information) you gave your loved ones to help you in recovery? If you could go back pre-op, (if you have had surgery) what would you do differently? Funniest thing that happened in your journey? Best advice to get through these weeks leading up to surgery? Thanks to any that post!
