Well, I blew off a PT evaluation today. My knee is just too swollen and painful for this torture today. Sleepness nights are starting to take its toll. I am so tired when I go to bed and then kabam I'm wide away, uncomfortable and restless. Last night it was the worse with the pain. Took 2 Tylenol and a Tramadol at 4am so I am a little goofy today! The only reason I was going to PT was OS was worried about my flex and extension at 6 weeks was 90 and 8 and so I went about 3 times. Brought those numbers to 110 flex and 3 extension at 8 weeks . To them it is not great and at 10 weeks with all the swelling and pain it would not be any better. I see the OS again Sept 23. and it will be what it will be. This is all so depressing I am afraid to call in for more Tramadol but when this knee hurts it hurts - shooting pain like a knife! Today is also 9/11 so sad what happened to us in 2001, so much has changed and I get pretty depressed. This is also the one year anniversary of my stroke! That's probably why I didn't sleep well. Hubby also was up in pain with his shoulder and he pulled a muscle in his back! Poor guy goes in Friday for a new Shoulder I sure hope he has a good outcome. So I need to put on my big girl panties on and switch to being the "Caregiver"!
