I wanted to give you guys another update about a decision I made about my knee. I’ve decided to go ahead and do the surgery. I felt like I didn’t have a choice when I was talking to the doctor.
My surgery will be on Feb. 3rd, which is a Friday 😦 That’s only like two and half weeks from now, oh my gosh. Anyway, he told me that the surgery is extremely aggressive and that recovery is about 4-6 months, which is long. It is definitely going to be a tough process. I’m not able to drive for at least six weeks. I’m going to be in a lot of pain and obviously not working. I will also have a big brace on and crutches.
Unfortunately, someone has to be with me all day for at least one to two weeks. I also have to stay overnight so they can observe me and make sure things go well. I feel helpless and kind of like a child again. I’ll be bored out of mind, but at least I’ll have Netflix.
I can’t tell you guys how nervous and scared I am. I have no idea how I’m going to feel when I wake up. I’m not ready for that part. I honestly don’t want to wake up. I’ll probably have to sleep on the couch for awhile, which means I won’t be getting any sleep. And I know, after a couple weeks, I’m going to have to work hard during therapy and moving it. It will be tough, but I’m sort of ready. I don’t know.
I hope everyone has a great day and rest of the week! 🙂
