Just got back from the Dr's office this morning. 13 days since left total knee replacement.

The Dr. is very pleased with the knee recovery so far. Got the staples out this morning!

-I can now shower!!!!!
-I can now walk as much as I can stand!
-Y'all be careful this weekend- I can DRIVE starting Saturday!!!!
-I can take the leg bender over 100 degrees!!!(shooting for 140degrees).
-I can start working out- stationary bike, elliptical, etc.!!!!

As I said- truly blessed today! And, I really appreciate my DW more than ever. She is truly my greatest gift from God!!! 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

So glad your recovery is progressing so well.

But sad because I was hoping to come practice my specialized nursing skills on you!

Keep getting well.......And you are truly blessed. 

Smoochie and the Bean --- 9 years ago -

That's great!!

I know- I even went out and purchased 2 4X4's and a sledge hammer! (:-)

So glad to hear such good news Aman!

You are blessed indeed:)

Whoohoo, I know Starbucks is going to be thrilled to have you back. 

FabFive --- 9 years ago -

Aman, how exciting. You are doing so great!! 

rightwingmom --- 9 years ago -

Aman,
Congrats! Glad to hear the good news! 

I AM Innocent --- 9 years ago -

That is Great!

Let us know when you can pee standing on one leg. 

Ex-Lady In Blue (Admin) --- 9 years ago -

LOL, Ray! Glad to hear you are doing well. I have been MIA for a while so I didn't even know you were having surgery until I heard it through the grapevine. And I'm really glad about the being able to shower part - I'm pretty sure the people in Starbucks appreciate that. Now, about that driving . . . 

AuthorMan (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

If I ever get to where I am standing on one of my legs, I don't think I will be thinking of a pee! 

Meme (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

That is great news aman!! Glad to hear you are "up and running"! Keep recovering quickly!! 

AuthorMan (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

Bump.

Bumped this so I will know what to expect in 12 days! 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

I cancelled the cruise trip and have signed up to be your personal nurse for the duration of your surgery and recovery. Would rather care for you than take some silly cruise with the husband!!! bwahahahahaha

I have a question for you:

Will they operate on a knee if the patient has not slept in 12 days? 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

I would if I were the doctor. And, if I were the nurse assisting the doctor, I would strongly encourage the doctor to go ahead with the procedure - just for the fun of it.

Serious answer to your question - Probably not, but I'm sure your body will eventually give out and you WILL get some sleep.

You had such a fun time with the first knee, you should be jumping with joy for this one to be done!!!!! 

AuthorMan (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

Well, went to pre-op this morning and the darn fools didn't find a reason to postpone.

Damn the bad luck!

Oh, well. 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

I'll be there bright and early to start the IV, then I'll be in the OR, then in recovery, then in I'll be the one wheeling you to your room and be your nurse for the whole night long.

Hubby's going on the cruise without me because he knows this is sooooooo important to me.

bwahahahahahaha

dont trust her! She says IV but she really means enema! sp 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

That too! Hehehe 

Fallon --- 9 years ago -

lol

We will be praying that you breeze thru the surgery and recovery phase in record time! 

AuthorMan (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

One week from today, I will be waking up in the recovery room.

I won't know who the hell I am or what just happened, but at least I will kind of be awake! 

AuthorMan (Mod) --- 8 years ago -

Lovely!

Caught a head cold at the gym Friday! Bad nights Friday and Saturday- turned the corner Sunday.

I contacted the Dr's nurse and she wanted me to see Primary Dr to check the head and chest. Got the OK this morning.

7am tomorrow, the scalpel begins things.

Then the saw, hammer, sutures and staples follow. Then, the fun begins. 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 8 years ago -

Hope all goes well for ya... 

Fallon --- 8 years ago -

Many prayers for you for tomorrow. And for your wonderful wife who will be taking care of you:)

I see how you planned this trip while TO is away on her cruise?

Goodnight all- need to check in at 5:30am for 7am cutting appointment.

See y'all on the other side! (:-)

Not!

If I could remember crap, I might have opted out.

There is a book in this one!

OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW- sorry for the lack of updates. The computer chair is very low and hard to enter/exit with one useless knee and one bum knee!
