Surgery

Saw surgeon today. Liking him. Very nice, very confidence-inspiring. He is very busy, but is going to try to get me in sooner than the scheduled date, which is March 8. March. I know. But in the meantime, Traci will come in for an hour Tues, Wed, and Thurs, in addition to her usual Monday and Friday stints. Just to do washing up, making some food, things I can’t do right now.

Doctor told me to try using a bike. I have a recumbent bike/ellipse machine, so will use that. Wasn’t sure if I should be doing anything or not. The only pain med that will help is Tramadol, and I had hallucinations last time I tried that, so he thinks the biking will help somehow. We’ll see how it goes. I may not even need to go to rehab after, if I do well, and the Visiting Nurse will come every day because lots of physical therapy is required after surgery.

I am looking forward to being mobile again. Got the walker, got a tray for the walker (neat), but actually walking hurts like heck. So want this done, please. I am happy.

    • Oh, me, too. They will call if there’s a cancellation. I’m at the top of the list for that. He is also trying to get more time in general in the ER. I really like him a lot, so feeling pretty good about it all. Yay! 🙂
