I had my knee mobilized under anesthesia yesterday. They did a femoral nerve block and then gave me a dose of Michael Jackson's favorite sleeping aid - he did get the good drugs! As soon as I woke up I was off to physical therapy. Bit of a shock regressing back to a deadened quad muscle and a leg that felt like rubber, but gosh, got that bend to 124. Then today I went again (have to go 10 consecutive days) and got it to 127. I'm not saying it's not painful, but it's a different kind of pain. This pain feels more like a bad bruise and I can cope with it I think even after the nerve block wears off. I'm just a little nervous that it's all too good to be true! I'll be 12 weeks tomorrow, and I am still on my pain meds, but now it doesn't seem like taking drugs with no results to show for it.
