Total Knee Replacement
I am getting very nervous about Monday. I have my first appointment with my new orthopaedic surgeon.
The one that I was seeing does not do total knee replacements. He's been injecting my left knee with steroids and said I cannot have any more, the spoiled sport, lol, just kidding, he was a great doctor.
So I go on Monday morning. And even though I want to have the knee surgery, I am kind of freaking out about it.
I had an arthroscope surgery before, but this will be more intense, I am sure.
But everyone that I have talked to, who has had the surgery, says they are much better for having it.
The arthroscopy was outpatient, I hear I will be hospitalized for this one.
My biggest concern is that I live alone now. My kids are in Ohio, and my sister maryccc works until five.
I hope I am eligible for home health, I really do not want to go to a nursing home, who knows what kind of infection I might pick up?
So I am ready for my bionic parts, I guess....
