I too was going to suggest the gift card. I have two teen boys I buy for and I stopped buying anything clothing related when they turned 10!

Just arrived home from my first session of torture, I mean physical therapy. Whew!

The therapist really put me through my paces in the hour-long time period. When it was all said and done, I worked up a bit of a sweat, am experiencing quite a lot of pain and am tired.

So I'm sitting with my leg elevated and an ice pack on my knee. I had a really rough night last night, so I think a nap might be in order this afternoon. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Katie, it sounds exhausting

Things will get better...my mum was the same for the first few physio sessions when she had her knee replacement too

I'd love to join you for that nap. This leg pain is sapping all my strength. I am trying to hold out until the 18th. There is no discoloring or swelling. Monday is my pre-op workup. I don't want anything to happen before then. And I am spreading myself too thin. I promised my daughter that i would make the cookies for her party. I have two of them made up all ready and in the freezer. I was going to do four different kind. But I think I will have to stop at three. I just have the Chocolate Sea Salt ones left to make. They whip up in no time. When it comes down to baking them, I am going downstairs to the Community Room kitchen. They have two stoves there and I can get them baked and done with a lot faster. Fortunately I have enough cookie sheets to do four trays at a time. I really need to do them at this time. For the first two days, I won't be able to see. I will have a patch over my one good eye. Even though the vision has improved on the eye that has been done, I still can't focus with it. And I never will. I will be able to see well enough to keep from bumping into things.

Okay God. Knock it off. You have had your fun with me. If I have to come up there and yell at you, you are going to be in big trouble. I will send you to your room ALONE! You can stop this pain anytiime now.

I am taking the Vicodin, but in a way that is making it worse. I get hyper on them and very restless. Then I want to get up and do more work instead of resting the leg. Counterproductive.

Is that the only medication you can take for your leg? It sounds like it may not be the right one

Medicate prior to PT, by about 20-30 minutes. It will really help get through the session. We wouldn't want you to avoid going because of pain. They should also have ice packs there and let you sit with one for about 20 mins after, especially if you are driving/riding any distance to get home.

I am also on gabapentin. And that helps some.
