Well folks, it is ONE WHOLE YEAR since I had my Total Knee Replacement on my first knee!
It sure has been QUITE the learning experience!
Since then, my right knee joined the party, and I have had TWO "good knees" since last October.
I must say that for me, the surgeries changed my life. For five years previously I was headed down Pain Road with NO CHANCE of relief unless I jumped on the surgery bandwagon and just went for it.
I am VERY happy that I got on that wagon...TWICE!
Today is not only the first anniversary of LEFT KNEE; it is the 40th wedding anniversary for my husband and me. (Yes, we spent our 39th anniversary last year "celebrating" in the recovery room and hospital room following my TKR!)
TODAY is NO recovery room, NO hospital room, NO IV pole or medication, NO nausea, NO tourniquet "Steak Knife" pain, and NO first standing up after surgery! ????????
Today IS breakfast together at Scrambler Marie's, a ride to Erie, Pennsylvania to WALK along the walkway and beaches of Presque Isle, a nice dinner, and seeing Independence Day at the movies. Ahhhh! Looking forward to walking along the beautiful shores of Lake Erie with no KNEE PAIN! ????
Here's to ALL of us in various stages of recovery from the operation that brought us all together here on this forum! ??????????
Wishing us all continued good recovery and many happy pain-free days! ??
