One Week After A Total Knee Replacement

Hi my favorite readers! It’s been a week since my total knee replacement. Considering that it’s a major operation, it just amazes me how I’m up and around. There’s a lot of swelling of my foot and knee area. It goes down a bit with ice.

Every hour, I get up and walk around. In addition to developing my knee muscles from the surgery, I need to retrain my muscles to be used ‘normally’. See, for the past 30 years, I’ve been wearing a shoe lift. This means that I haven’t been walking from heel to toe. Rather, my gait has been from plop to toe.

The pain upon first rising, either in the morning or after sitting, is unbearable. Once I begin to move, though, it gets better. Don’t talk to me about pain meds. They’re a joke. Bring on the medicinal marijuana, I say. Then, I’ll be happy. 🙂 (In case you’re wondering….no, I do not use medicinal marijuana. That was intended as a joke.) Muscles are meant to be used, and it’s interesting to see how they develop. Painful, but interesting. Don’t ask me to repeat that next time I stand up, though.

I’m cracking up right now (or, as it’s known in online lingo…ROTFL)….my favorite ad was just on. On the NHL Network. It’s a Verizon ad involving hockey fans. It takes place in a newborn viewing area of the hospital. The parents are standing behind the glass looking in at the babies. Then, the camera shoots to the nurse pushing a newborn into the room. Suddenly, one of the fathers starts pounding on the glass yelling, “Baby, baby, I love you! You’re the best baby in this place!” Then, he points to some other babies and yells, “LOSER! LOSER! LOSER!” The announcer and caption then say, “Hockey fans are a different kind of fan.” That just cracks me up every time. lol

Back to reality:
Once finding out I needed a home therapist 3x/week, I didn’t think it was necessary. Now, I’m glad it’s happening. On our first meeting, she showed me new ‘tricks’. I’ve already told her that she is known to my friends as “the torturist”. Her reply to that? “PT stands for pain and torture”. That’s funny.

My PT lady just came and went. She eliminated an unbearable amount of pain simply by stretching my newly aligned muscles. Right on, PT lady. 🙂

What does all this have to do with my book project? Well, it is the culmination of events included in my book project. Hmm..

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
