Arthoscopic Knee Surgery

Mar 04, 2012

Sorry for the late update...

I've been on Percocet pills lately; my legs elevated, and a Polar Ice Unit plugged into the wall; keeping my knee on ice for hours. I've gotta say, I thought my knee surgery would hurt way more than it has. Drugs really do kick ass lol. That, and I've had an incredibly supportive boyfriend by my side the whole way. ♥ The first 20 minutes post-op hurt quite a bit; until the Dilauded injections got everything under control. To my old man's surprise, I stood up in my crutches pretty quickly too! My throat was a little sore from the breathing tube, and I had a nasty cough from the general anesthesia... But all in all, I'm doing really well. Want proof? I just uploaded a picture that my sister Lucia took with her cell phone cam.
I should be starting physical therapy later this week. After a couple of weeks, I'll be back to my old self again! Thank God! :)
