Day 9 post op

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

hmmm. Starting to get a little frustrated with the pain in my leg. I asked the physical therapist how long it takes for the pain to subside and she said she can't say because everyone is different. Said for some people it takes up to 6 weeks! Then when she saw the look on my face she said not to get discouraged because I'm doing really well and she thinks it won't take that long. She said for some people the pain the leg pain post op is so bad they cry when bending and straightening. So I guess I should be grateful it is not as bad as it is. The thing that sucks is I can't get a decent night's sleep. I couldn't get to sleep last night and was wide awake until about 5. I slept until 9 and then got up ate breakfast and got ready to go out for the day. Had a lot of little errands to run, bank, pharmacy, doctor's appointments, PT and was home by 3:30. I crashed on the couch and slept again until 7pm. I've been really good staying on track with my calories and nutrition. I've been trying to drink more milk thinking it will help my bones heal faster from the surgery. I don't know if it really does much but I do feel healthy.
