Today I feel scared for a first

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Good Morning to all my Sparkers! I was told by a wise young man to practice what I preach and reach out to my friends. As most know I am not much of a blogger but I am still trying to become one. I am having knee surgery tomorrow and I am a little scared about it. I have been looking forward to getting my knee fixed so that I can get back to working out and the actual knee repair is not my fear. My fear is being immobile and at the mercy of someone who would love to see me gain all 200 lbs back. I sat down with my son last night and explained what is going to happen and what I am going to need afterwards. I think he will be a big help this time. He is older and knows more of how to help post surgery. My husband doesn't agree. He feels that pain medicine and sweets are the answer. I spoke with my doctor and he is given a detailed post op plan for us to follow. I hope it works. Thanks for being here and listening to my blog.

    My mom had knee surgery 2 years ago, and is SO glad she did! The key to a quick recovery for her was the physical therapy and moving, moving, moving! The good thing about that is that moving is also the key to keeping off weight, so it's a win, win. Good luck with your surgery!! I'm betting you'll do great with your post-op. Just keep on Sparking!!

    Good Luck with your surgery! You are so determined, the kind of patient I like to have! I used to take care of orthopedic patients immediately post op, and the determined people do the best!
    Stick to your guns on the healthy food! You need that for healing.
    Hope that today, the day after Thanksgiving, finds you up and about and doing well!
    I just read your interview with Beth Donovan......You look GREAT! emoticon

    Good luck. Keep us posted. We'll be thinking about you. After a knee surgery....movement is what they want...aka exercise. You'll do great! If you have it in you're head and heart that you won't gain it back then you won't. I think you've already won that battle!!!!
