And I just pee'd for the second time!=) So far so good, I was wheeled into the OR at 7:30 sharp and was lights out a Few minutes later, in what seemed like 5 minutes I was being woken up in recovery. I was very groggy for quite a while, even once they wheeled me into my room I was having a hard time staying awake, PT arrived shortly after and proceeded to get me on my feet, I didn't get too far before they saw I was turning pale and got me back to bed. I dozed off and on with my wife keeping me company, even though I was provided with a ice machine, I was told that my OS didn't want it used on the first day which I found odd but to be honest I haven't really had much pain. I'm told the OS came and spoke to me, but I don't remember it, he told my wife that there was a lot of arthritis in the joint but that I had done well and said my incision was about 4" long, I haven't seen it yet. I requested a private room but ended up with an older very sickly man who requires constant attention not to mention the constant alarms and beeping. I had dinner and that woke me right up, my mouth and throat are very dry so I'm taking advantage of unlimited drinks and ice cream. They have me on low dose Oxycontin and Tylenol that seems to be doing the trick. Just waiting for my final dose for the night and hopefully my room mate and I can get a few uninterrupted hours of sleep. I'll report back in the AM once I see what day 2 brings.
