15. My dear Peg

I refrained from posting prior to and during your odeal. I had my knee done last June and, had I known how hard it was going to be, I might have had second thoughts. I didn't want to say anything that would frighten you or discourage you so I just lurked and kept my mouth shut. Now that you are on the road back, however, I encourage you to really work hard on your PT, especially at home. The harder you work, the faster it will get better and remember, pain pills (for now) are your friend! Good luck and keep us posted.

I'm at the point now where I am considering getting a mountain bike to start building up strength and putting my knee through some paces though it still hurts some if I twist it the wrong way. The little pain now is nothing compared to the bone on bone agony I was experiencing prior to the operation.

I'm glad to hear you had a good Dr. who kept you in the hospital for a few days post op. I've heard (and seen) horror stories of people sent home the next day. Having a great PT helps a whole bunch too.
Peace
Bud
