Waking up was ok, pain was better than I thought it would it/ Meds worked fine, Nite nurses were awful. I was overmedicated for days. Surgery took 6 hours instead of 4 and I needed 2 bloodtansfusions.

I went in on Thurs the 17th and got home Monday 21st. I cannot get comfortable. I walk 3 x a day. Back to surgeon tomorrow.

My biggest problem is that my left leg is numb by the inside of the knee to the touch also it feels like a charlie horse is coming on I hope this will go away. I will find out tomorrowl thanks for listenin.


  • I hope everything goes well for you and sorry your in pain I have surgery soon and hope that I don't get overmedicated take care!!!
