The surgery was a success, and I am now home. I had to be there this morning by 8am, but did not go into surgery until close to 12:30pm. The surgery before me was taking longer than they thought. After the surgery I woke up pretty quickly. It surprised the nurses how I was able to put myself into the recovery chair without help. I am now home and in bed watching t.v. with Charlie.
The only problem I had when I came home was the four steps to get into the house. Let’s just say I will not be doing that again anytime soon. The ride home was good, only a little bit of nausea coming home. I am waiting for pizza to be delivered because I have not eaten anything since yesterday at around 5:30pm. I had a few crackers when I woke up from surgery. Well I will talk to you later. I am going to watch t.v. and relax.
I am having knee surgery tomorrow. Finally after about 16 months of being in pain, I will have my knee surgery. I don’t know if I will post anything over the weekend, because I will be recovering. If I feel good on the weekend, I might post. I will see how it goes. I am having to drive out-of-town for the surgery, Then my Mom and Dad are driving me home the same day. It is a same day surgery, which is good. I hate hospitals. I have gone all my life without having any kind of surgery, and this year I have had two surgeries this year. I had one in June for my gallbladder, and now my knee surgery. This is a good thing, because now I can walk without worrying about falling down, because of the instability in my knee.
So as soon as I feel good enough to post, I will start posting more. I might even try to write some up to create a backlog of posts. Hopefully I will be back on my feet and running soon. I will talk with everyone later.
I received good news on Wednesday, I finally get surgery on my knee. I tore my ACL and Meniscus last year in June. The first doctor wanted me to lose weight before he did surgery. Well, I decided to get a second opinion with another doctor. He asked me why the other doctor
did not do the surgery, and I told him that he wanted me to lose weight first. Dr. Wilkinson said that is no reason not do to do the surgery. That I needed the knee to be fixed in order to lose weight.
So I am scheduled to have surgery on October 31 of this year. YEAH!!! This also means I will be off work for 6-9 months for
recovery. I can work more on my blog during this time. Well I better get back to work since my lunch break is over. I will talk with you later.
Tomorrow I have an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to get a second opinion on my knee. Last year I tore my ACL and MENISCUS. I also have no stability in my knee. This means that my knee can give away anytime I am walking. It is very painful and I seem to be missing more work because of it. TODAY I left work early, because it was swollen and could not put any weight on it. Last year when I went to another Doctor he wanted me to lose 50 lbs before he would do the surgery. Instead I gained some weight back that I had lost before I messed up my knee. So tomorrow I am really hoping that he will do the surgery. So wish Me luck, for I really need it. I will let you know what the verdict is after my appointment.
