Body Reconstruction Phase Two - Total Left Knee Replacement Today


Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Just a quick note to say hi and thank you to all of my SparkFriends for your positivity and support over the last five months. Today is an important day for me as I will have my left knee replaced at 1:45 pm today. I am going into this with the same optimism and positive outlook that I did for my Weight Loss Surgery.

Now with 96 lbs gone (and a little over 30 left to lose), I am going to regain mobility with my new knee. I understand that the rehab will be intense, but this short term sacrifice will be worth it. I need to be able to really move my body in order to shed these last few pounds - and have a chane to get out and volunteer at my hospital or an animal shelter in the area.

So much has changed this year, this is the next logical step in my body reconstruction. I will be in touch with all of you later tonight or as soon as I am coherent enough to use my laptop at the hospital. May God bless you all today and every tomorrow -

Your friend, "Sprink"

    Good luck on the surgery and. I wish you quick recovery. I thought of having my right knee done while my deductible was met but talked myself out of it - less weight on the knee really has helped, keep us posted

    Hope your surgery went well! I am having my left knee replaced in 4 weeks. I had the right one done 3 years ago. I did really well and bounced right back. Congratulations on your big weight loss! I unfortunately have gained since my last surgery, but hoping I will be more mobile soon and can get back on track. Best wishes! Shirley
