So today is my last day home from work. I don't really want to go back, but i have to. I did my exercises today. I'm way under my calories for today and trying to figure out what to eat. Any good snack ideas?

    Thank you so much for asking about that! So far I'm ok today. My surgical wounds are almost completely healed.

    Snacks--fruit--I like crackers and Laughing Cow cheese. Greek yogurt or just yogurt.

I went to the ortho Dr. today to get my supartz shots. OUCH! I asked him about ACL surgery. He did tell me that it can be worse than a knee replacement and takes weeks of recovery, sometimes as many as 10. He did tell me why but it was Greek to me. I asked him what to do about pain medication explaining that I don't like taking Tylox or Oxycontin because I have a very addictive personality and I am afraid of becoming addicted. He said after 10 days you can ask your Dr. for ibuprophen 800. It is stronger than Aleve or Advil but doesn't have narcotics in it. It doesn't give you a sleepy, zombie like feeling. I hope this helps.
