As I sit here in my percocet induced haze with my TED hose on. my raised toilet seat a few feet away and my trusty walker with the lambs wool handle covers, I wonder was it worth it?
OH GOD I HOPE SO!!!!!
Joint replacement is no fun. You feel like you are 90. You walk like you are 90, and you hang around with 70-90 yo's in PT. But everyone says, "Gee you're awlfully young for this". You try to dress yourself with funny contraptions. If you drop stuff and it rolls away from you, forget it. You can't put your own socks on . Forget shoes, you need help with bathing and washing your hair and the worst is you can't even wipe your own ass.
My thigh is huge and black and blue. I was on Fragmin so my stomach is black and blue. I had to have 2 units of blood which I wasn't counting on. Then I read in the paper about 2 people in Florida that were HIV pos from a blood donor.
I'm sorry, just very sore, very bored and very smelly(can't shower yet). I knew you guys would understand. Anyway I missed everyone and when I can sit for longer periods, maybe I can get through some of these threads. This is all I can tolerate for now.
Thanks for listening.
