Wish Me Well: Surgery Tomorrow

    Well, I did my best with physical therapy but it's not enough. My knee is very unstabile (especially since I fell again 6 weeks ago). Tomorrow I'm scheduled for knee surgery to repair my ACL.

    Dang!! I was just to the point where I could go up and down stairs with a little grace. Now I'll be back on crutches for several weeks while the repair heals.

    I'll be rechecking the old suggestions (from my threads of last June) for making life easier while semi-incapacitated. The snack suggestions last summer were great! So were the suggestions for getting along on crutches and maintaining my house, job, life and sanity.

    At least this time I have a little warning (and a little experience~~!). Also, it's just the knee this time. In the accident last June, I not only tore the ACL and meniscus, but also broke my knee in two spots and smashed (broke) my ankle. The ankle's better and all the knee fractures have healed - but an ACL can only be replaced. 1:00pm tomorrow to be exact.

    Wish me well...!!

    Good luck Aude,

    I can sympathize with you I have had 4 surgies on my right knee and will eventually have to have a knee replacement.

    Take care, don't try to do too much, make sure you wiggle your toes (back and forth) alot to prevent blood clots, and give your physical therapy 100%

    I wish you a successful outcome with your surgery tomorrow. That accident proved quite troublesome for you.
