It’s been three weeks now since I had total knee replacement for my left knee. Whew, this marathon is taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r!
I am getting better and now walking very slowly with a cane in the house. Yeah! I can actually carry things now! I still have a lot of pain in my leg and skin numbness around the overall knee area. There are good days and bad days. It is difficult to get comfortable no matter what I am doing: sitting, standing, and lying down. I also get discouraged on how slowly the time is passing. But my sweet hubby continues to be my cheerleader and lifts my spirits up. I know that it will be better once I am able to do more than putter around the house in a semi-vegetative state (LOL), be able to visit places besides the physical therapy and doctor offices, and regain some independence.
So please stay tuned as I continue to get well and strive to get back to my regular activities!
