Get pushing on that today after we get drainage controlled/answered. BM this morning... early excitement. No way I could be home alone. Wife has been awesome, as usual. MIL will occasionally ask why I am on crutches again... Will keep it brief with updates as I can report improvements that are truly milestones vs just little baby steps that I see. Get me some fishing/family/Memorial Day pics and reports, please

Good luck, dude!~

I clearly underestimated the scale of this surgery, in both the pain (and management of it) as well as all the help needed around the house daily.... On the upside of it, I can report that it has been ten days since I had a cigarette, so I will take that all day long...….

Don’t play catch up with the pain. One day at a time will work fine here.

So here I sit on June 14, Flag Day. Icing. PT appointment in town at 0930. This will be just my fourth time out since the surgery.

Today is three months since I fell and forced the surgery. It is also three weeks and two days since surgery. Using cane and one crutch as a back up. Still not full weight bearing.

Pain is more manageable and evolving. A lot is being able to differentiate and isolate muscles and areas that are healing stretching, etc. Sleeping is better. Will try driving around the block this afternoon. Not going to drive to PT as I use the oxys to lube up and do as much movement as I can bear to. Been very limited use, preferring the Tylenol. So much of this is getting right between my ears... Up to now has been slow going, but improvements seem to be accelerating. So I take the improvements graciously. There is no forcing this thing ahead of schedule, which was hard to accept as I have always been a fast healer.

So, much respect to anyone who has had a knee replaced, any joint replacement (or other serious surgeries for that matter). Take care of you body and appreciate all the smalls in your life that we can do... It is a different story when abilities are taken away.

Ross, I understand. I had 10 operations in 2003. One was a Quad bypass. I felt like a bus had hit me and my cardio guys said I would have been better off. It took 6 weeks for me to feel somewhat normal and 4 months until I could fish again.

I ONE thing I did learn from the experience was to listen to your body. You will know when it is right to do something. If it doesn't feel totally right, then don't do it and I mean anything.

I have no doubt that you will be fine. You are young (compared to me), strong willed and your determination will drive you to succeed.
