Well, I had my first non-doctor appointment outing today. It was so wonderful to get out of the house and see people. It was only a 45 minute trip to WalMart, but when you've been cooped up for 3 weeks, that seems like Disneyland.
I'm not noticing any additional aches or pains, no muscle spasms. The only thing I've noticed is some swelling around my right ankle and over the tibia of the same leg. I think that's just from my legs being in the dependent position for too long. I hope so, at least
I'm hoping, and praying (and knocking on wood and crossing my fingers
) that my recovery continues the way it has been. I guess I had pre-conceived notions of what my recovery would be like before I even had this surgery, and was preparing for the worst yet hoping for the best. It may not be the best, but darn close to it!
