Surgery done now rehab

Friday, July 11, 2014

I had my total knee surgery on Monday and now am doing 1st outpatient rehab. I did rehab while I was in the hospital and boy did they work me hard. I get real tired easy now but I know that as I got further along I will get stronger. I am doing what the drs and therapist tell me to do. It is hard as I get lots of muscle pain in my butt ox. I am getting tired so I will write more later.

    We have had so many from the water aerobics class go through that. Some were back to class within a week and did VERY well. I am a candidate too.. taking stairs one at a time.

My knee surgery is scheduled for Monday July 7th at 11:00 a.m. I know have haven't been on lately because I have been sick and lost 7 lbs this week. I will post as often as I can to let everyone know how I am doing. I hope everyone had a good 4th of July.

It has been raining here so much that the grass is getting so tall. I had a friend come over and mow 4 lots with a brush hog mower and it looks like I will have to ask him again. I really hate doing that. He is such a kind person. I am so ready for it to stop raining for a little while.


Getting nervous

Saturday, June 21, 2014

As my surgery date is getting closer I am getting a heavy feeling in my stomach. I find that I am second guessing myself. Asking questions like can I do what it will take to get back to walking and working out. I know that it will be hard with the rehab. I am in the process of trying to figure out how I am going to get into the shower and into bed. I have such a large mount of excess skin on the lower part of my stomach. I have to lay on the bed and use a fan to finish drying before I put powder on, because if I don't get good and dry I get sores underneath and they are very painful. I know it will be one step and one day at a time but the closer it gets the more nervous I get.

    You'll be fine. The surgery will help you move around better.

    You will be ok.... think of how much easier it will be afterward! Forced exercise with rehab! You will have DOUBLE incentive. You can do it!

    Stay positive as I am sure they will look after you sometimes I know here they will offer home help but I don't know if they offer the same over in your country.

    It sounds like it's going to be hard for awhile, but I hope you can picture your future self and all the things you WILL be able to do. Remember all the reasons you made this decision in the first place.

You are the hero in your story -- you're going to come back better & stronger!
