My current condition. My left knee is the newly replaced knee. It is recovering slowly, but it's much better. Now I have terrible pain in the other knee. I needs replacing too, but cannot be done for several months and I am not sure I can go through it again. Add to that my pubic symphasis has started to really hurt right now- today. I know that have arthritis there- same orthopedist x-rayed it some years ago. I think that the bones first separated when I was pregnant with Courtney. It bothered me with each pregnancy. Occasionally since then which I have always attributed to being overweight.
I went to weight watchers yesterday for the first time since before surgery. I have gained 6 lb, since surgery, but had lost 30lb before surgery. Sitting here with the ice machine on one knee and an ice-pack on my pubis.
Fingers crossed all will be better by the time I head for New Orleans. If not, I'll arrange to rent a scooter there.
