Post Op Day 26
Posted January 14, 2020
Cool machine keeps my vino cold
Just came from a very grueling PT session. The straightening part KILLS me. My bend is great; 128 degrees today. Straightening -3. UGH.
For the most part, I'm doing very well. I don't use the cane in the house anymore and I'm off all of the meds. I still have very little appetite and I'm told that some people go through that from the anesthesia. WTF? It's been 26 days and there are still residual amounts goofing with my appetite? Not the way I wanted to slide back into Weight Watchers' Free/No Pay range, but I'm doing it; plus my new knee weighs almost a pound more than my "stock" one, so some adjustments need to be made as every ounce counts on WW!
Onward and upward! I'm pretty sore today and have to force myself to do those horrible stretches every day 3x a day. I'll just keep in mind how much I really miss bowling and unless I do my exercises, it will be further and further away.
The cardio did stimulate hunger; so Eddie is making me a half tuna sandwich to see how that goes. Baby steps!
