31. Wow! That's great!

I really hate the idea of being in rehab - what's it like? Did you have to share a room? How many hours a day was the therapy? Did you have any energy for anything else? What things (nightgown, toiletries, etc) did you find useful?

I'm trying to plan on what to take - books, tablet, needlework? Here, I keep busy all day with various things, but will I be too tired to worry about that in the rehab place?

Yes, the Six Knee lady was impressive, especially since she'd had eight other operations in the last ten years (I thought I had it bad with five major operations in that amount of time!) and was looking forward to another bypass operation this spring.

She was happy and cheerfully discussed her medical stuff with me and encouraged the knee replacements even though she'd had such bad luck. She did say she had gotten a "nice settlement" in the class action suit, so maybe she got enough money to make up for the pain. That's have to be a WHOLE lot of money!
