Lisa, good luck with your surgery. I'm a big supporter of physical therapy...it makes a huge difference. So my advice is get into therapy as soon after surgery as they will let you and make sure you do the home exercises they give you. It will help your recovery so much and speed things along. Best wishes!

good luck! i had a meniscus repair about 5 years ago. Could not believe the difference. wish i had done it sooner. Go to PT it makes a world of difference in your recovery.

Ooooeer, Lisa, that does sound very painful. I wish you all the very best for a successful outcome and quick recovery. Because of my age I am now eligible for free bone scan and bone density medication which I accept very gratefully.

I hope you have some interesting hand sewing and some good books to keep you nice and quiet and still until you are well again.

Hugs, Mary B.

Thanks (((((((((((everyone)))))) Yes its been very painful ..tonight l had a massive headache coz of the pain and throbbing in my knee. I took some pain killer and finally it kicked in and l fell asleep sitting bolt upright on the couch hahaha..........Bakermom....did you have to wear a brace after it was done and use crutches???. I promise l'll do phyiscal therapy....I'm going to make up all my strip sets in the next few days and l'm going to go and buy another charm pack so l can make pinwheels as well ...I've got a amazon kindle as well so l'm not short of books.. Also hand quilting for my class l'm doing.

I didn't wear a brace but they did put me on cruches at first. PT for 6-8 weeks
I had put off going to the Dr. because i thought it was arthritis and didn't think they could do much besides shots-I have a terrible fear of needles. got to the point i had to crawl up the stairs at night. when they said it could be fixed with surgery i said do it asap. Other than some burning at the incision sites at first i have been pain free ever since. if I had known it that's all it would take i would have gone sooner. I realize my experience might not be the same as yours, but i am so glad i had it done.

good luck with the surgery and take a minute to enjoy being waited on. Sounds like you're all lined up with busy things to keep you going and PT will wear you out just getting there!!! Good luck .

April 18th, 2011, 01:36 PM
Yes, Lisa, enjoy being waited on! I had a complete knee replacement done and it is like night and day! Now I can walk again. Life is so much better! Do your pt like they tell you! Be thinking of you and praying for speedy recovery!
