    Keep your eye on the goal! You will have good days and bad. Eventually the good will out number the bad. In the first few days sleep was an issue. Keep on top of your meds or you will find it hard to get back under control. We are here for you!

    You're doing well, Sharon! The day after the op is the worst, and getting to and from the bathroom on your own is a real plus! You'll soon be swapping the zimmer frame for crutches, and there'll be no stopping you.

    My brusing took quite a while to come out. Some people bruise more easily than others. I was only on zimmer for first day then crutches.

    Also I did not get out of bed the first day after op so you've beaten me!

    Keep smiling and keep in touch

    Take care

    My husband amused himself by taking pictures of my bruises to send to the family - they were quite spectacular for two weeks - and that is only the surface bruising.  You sound like you are working really well to get the new knee going - well done.
