I’m adjusting well to Percocet every 6 hours instead of every 4. I start feeling sore about an hour before I’m due to take more, but it’s definitely do-able. My system is liking the fewer drugs!
I’ve got the cryo-cuff on a lot more of the time, and it’s really helping! My knee is weird, it’s swollen enough that it actually feels firm to the touch, but it doesn’t look any different than I did yesterday. I think the calf is starting to bruise, but it’s hard to see right now. It’s pretty hot to the touch, I wouldn’t be surprised to see bruising in the next couple days. The back of my knee, however, is definitely starting to bruise more.
When I’m laying in bed, I feel strong and healthy, but I am surprised at how tiring sitting up for even just one hour can be! I guess my strength is not what I expect it to be.
My church has set up a schedule for people to bring J and I dinner 3 times a week until my post-op appointment. I feel spoiled and loved by my amazing friends!
