I am going to write a little bit here as a sort of note/ reminder to myself. I am afraid that in however many months pass, and my knee is feeling great I will forget how it feels right now. I hope that it will feel great. I hope that I will feel like this knee replacement surgery was the best decision I ever made.
It's been six days since my surgery and I hurt like I never could have imagined possible. It's horrible. I ask myself what made me think that this was a good idea. The first day or so there was still medication on board that kept the pain down and I think gave me greater mobility,
Now I hurt. A lot. Honestly, I am a little bit better at putting my leg into bed without help. A small thing, but my current reality.
I hate taking pain medicine, but I have to or I will tear myself out of my skin with the pain.
Time to take a shower, take some drugs and have Nick take me to physical therapy.
