I'm worried for you Sleepy, but you know that chemicals are always tiring and unpleasant for our bodies, be patient. My best thought.

my dad had the same surgery and he did not do well either.from his experience i will offer up a bit of free advice: WORK VERY VERY HARD IN REHAB AND PT as that more than anything else will ultimately determine the success or failure of your surgery.

hopefully you will get your allergies under control and get on with the business of REHABING that knee.

good luck

Thanks Van...

I have the room as cold as I can get it....

I worked as hard as I've ever worked today....
2 sessions... 4.5 hours total.

The meds seem to be the culprit.

I kind of dread the weekend... I get a little break... but will I lose ground?

Chet

I had to make myself check email and the forum.... and thats not at all like me.

Wow Sleepy! That was a fast segue. One posting you’re in Florida and the next recovering from your surgery. I knew you had the knee replacement on your list of things to do and it appears it’s now done. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with medications but I take it that is a temporary situation as you won’t need them as you get further along in recovery. My mother had both knees replaced years ago and several years apart. She went through terrible pain but staid on her PT schedule and did as she was told. We kids did a lot of at home PT for her and the result was amazing. She had injured her knees when she was young in the 40’s skiing. She lived with knee pain for the middle 30 years of her life until the medical technology came about to replace the knees. After lots of exercising and stretching, she made a wonderful recovery. She walked nearly perfectly after years of worsening hobbled walking trying to give favor to knee pain. You are not having any fun now I’m sure but in a couple months this will be behind you and will be back out doing the things you guys love to do again. Best wishes for a quick recovery.

I'm sending good thoughts for a speedy recovery and rapid escape from the rehab facility to home ! The good thing is that the road will still be there to travel when you are ready!

Sleepy;

-2 friends with knee replacements, one seemed to go really well, one had a lot of problems.

In both cases they work their rehab very hard and are now happy with there knees.

Best wishes

I had a double knee job with really great out come. One thing to know is that they are not your original equipment, they are not going to be the same. Being three years sense my replacement, I've had time to adjust to the new knees. After you get over the first few weeks, things should get better for you. You got to work at it, do all the stuff they ask you to do. It will all work out for you. Just don't over do, over doing can cause swelling. Good luck, hoping you have a great recovery.

Update from my July 3rd surgery

One step forward, two steps back.

Finally keeping food down with the help of strongest nausea pill...

A lot of swelling, pain.... was bending to 92 degrees.... lost back to 80.... with ropes, pully's, a tractor, and dynamite got to 88 degrees yesterday.... once

Going stir crazy.... we are going to try to break out for a few hours sunday. I want to go home and lay on MY bed for a couple of hours.

I usually feel too bad for computer... I'm up changing ice packs and getting meds, decided to check in....

Thanks for your support if you even knew I needed it.... or have a little extra to loan
