Total Knee Replacement: The Longer I Go The Hurtier I Get.

Owie.

The Total Knee Replacement (ta-da-dummmm) was a piece of cake.Realz.

I was in and out of surgery by 10 am. Lotso pain until the morphine kicked in and then no problemo.

Total Knee Replacement - After - This is Improvement?

Up walking within a couple hours right after surgery. And walking more today. Enjoyed a little bondage in a gadget called a CPM: Constant Pain Mangler to restore range of motion on the ocean.

This damn thing has caused me more pain than anything. And no more morphine, I’m on pills.

Heading home tomorrow (Thursday) and rehab for Total Knee Replacement (ta-da-dummmmm) on Friday and thereafter.

Onward!

  1. Well done sir. Glad you got in and out with no complications and the first picture of the aftermath is suitably gross. Nice job all around.

    Remember, do the therapy and take the drugs. They’ll take them away from you all too soon…the drugs that is. 😛

    Glad you’re okay!

  2. Those orthopedic surgeons are really interested in getting baby boomers to have their knees replaced. My suggestion? Try alternative medicine techniques first. They’re less invasive for the body.

    Good luck with your recovery. You’re brave to put photos of your leg on your blog.

  3. just found your site, well done. I posted a comment earlier. If you haven’t found it already check kneeguru.co.uk. I’ve had ACL surgery, that site is a blessing. Good luck, remember you’re on your way back to good knee health – when you’re ready – do the exercise – and when your tired and can’t do anymore? do more exercise, HA! best to you.

  4. I can’t explain how I felt when I first saw your first knee photo. That really hurts! Actually, I never experienced any serious injury before that’s why I don’t have any idea how painful it was. Hoping for your fast recovery. Medication plus therapy sessions, everything will be back into normal.
