I guess I was being a tad unrealistic with my expectations. As dumb as this seems I thought that maybe for whatever the reason maybe this time it would not hurt as bad. Well I can assure everyone the more times you get a revision the more it hurts and yes my L knee is screaming but its not like I was not expecting it either just hoping that maybe not as bad. Since I have had lots of PO bleeding ( the dressing from the hospital was supposed to last 10days was saturated Thursday night ( it was in a word gross!!! ) with really dark almost black blood and it was changed Thursday night and twice yesterday ) I was told to limit activity to just the basics glad I have my kids to help out!! Another plus do not have to start PT till Monday and yes it kind of puts me behind but I do not want anymore blood oozing all over the place either. When the Therapist came by she was amazed since everything she was about to tell me I already knew. I showed her how I walk with my crutches she wanted to see how I get on my bed ( I have been doing this for so long its habit ) I put my R foot under my L foot and use the R leg to help in lifting my L leg on the bed. I will be doing therapy the 1st week 3X and from then on 2X a week. The rest of the week I will using Chico menu for exercises. I never wrote them down I just did them from memory. Its is going to be a long road to recovery in my case it may take a year or longer due to the amount of surgeries I have had. Yes I am fully aware of how miserable it will be but its no different then the past 5 with the one exception the pain level is higher.
