surgery today

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I tore my left knee meniscus 35 years ago. Surgery. I tore my left knee up (I slipped and fell) 2 weeks ago and now I am getting surgery to remove the remainder of the meniscus, and to replace my ACL. More surgery! I am not a happy camper. I'm a scared little girl and I don't want to do this. See. I've BEEN thru this before with my OTHER knee and I KNOW what this means. I know the pain, and I know it is gonna take 9 months of recovery, I know my right knee has never stopped hurting, has never gotten as strong as it was originally. and I don't wanna DO it to my left knee! So this is my last fit of anxiety and self-pity.

Sure, it is my choice. I can have surgery, or I can face sure severe arthritis very soon. I'm doing what is better for me, but it doesn't seem like a GOOD choice anyway. I get to choose between a rock and a hard place! In 3 hours, I am going under the knife.

From now on, I must count my blessings and see the silver lining.

    I hope all goes well. Things are much better with today's surgeries and I sure hope that's the case for you! God bless.

    Surgery 35 years ago versus surgery today: two different things. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

    I hope everything goes as well as it can possibly go for you! Perhaps you'll have a better outcome with this surgery than with the last. Best of everything to you!
