On April 25, 2007 I went in for arthroscopic surgery on my left knee. I had lateral and medial meniscus tears. Being petrified of general anesthesia, I opted for a spinal and intravenous sedation. I was told I would be in twilight, ha, I was out, didn’t remember a thing and woke up in recovery after it was all over…and still puked.
The worst discomfort was the day after. Today I made it up to the third floor to take a shower and tomorrow I have my first physical therapy session…ahh, can’t wait till some young physical therapist bends my knee more than I want.
Right now, an ice pack is my best friend. The 3 holes in my knee from the surgery and the swelling make it look like a nice purple/red bowling ball. I was going to attach a picture but it really looks nasty.
