I’ve never had a Total Knee Replacement, (ta da dummmmmm) so I’m taking advice from anybody who has been through it, is going to go through a Total Knee Replacement, knows somebody that went through it, or is thinking about going through a Total Knee Replacement for a great blog post series.
So far I have this advice:
From Bulbous: Do the rehab.
From Brian: Do the rehab.
From Kirk: Do the rehab.
From Aubenades: Take the narcotics
From BBQandBourbon: Apply Bourbon liberally internally to kidneys.
From The Hull Truth: Blame it on work. Yeah, like people would believe that, HAR.
From Catch Her in The Wry: Do the rehab in water. Which is a great idea. Bourbon and water!
Since we have a hot tub (or spa as we owners prefer to call it) I think I will toss the treadmill in the spa, hop on and have Nancy plug that sucker in.
From Top Dog: Keep the old knee. Which is another great idea, but I my expelled body parts will be declared a bio-hazard and I can’t have any part of my ownself.
Damn shame, because we have:
- bone chip from Nancy’s knee (which she told people was the remnant of her unborn twin)
- Nancy’s gallstones
- a dead dog’s kidney stones (Tramp, a former dog of ours, the removal of the kidney stones had nothing to do with his death.)
- a part of one of my molars
When I think about what we paid to acquire these assets, I bothers me that Dr. Patton will be recycling my knee.
Back to the advice on the Total Knee Replacement. What say you?
