Moment of Gratitude

Hi my favorite readers! I wanted to take a short moment here and express my gratitude for having such a positive outcome with my total knee replacement.

After reading all the stories and comments posted to this site, I am truly grateful I do not have any horrific stories to share. My recuperation included 8 months of sleep-deprived evenings, horrendous pain while getting my leg back to operating conditions and other bouts of what appears to be standard occurrences.

I may not be able to bend my tkr-affected joint more than about 93 degrees, but I certainly am not complaining. The scar tissues preventing the flexibility are due to 35+ years of accumulating scar tissue. And, no….revisions have NEVER crossed my mind. That is, until now that I’m writing about it. I would much rather deal with inflexibility than go through the revisions, setbacks and other negative situations many of you have experienced. You deserve all the credit in the world for going through such horrendous things.

Anyways, I am truly grateful to be what is known as a “successful tkr recipient.” No medications, in general good health, eating well, exercising regularly and appreciating every day I have. End of story.
