    Update: Just saw the surgeon today. This is day 16 after surgery. Swelling is nearly gone, flexion is at 115 degrees (120 is goal) and extension is at 3 degrees from flat (zero is the goal). I started PT at the clinic yesterday. Both the PT and the surgeon say I am 2 weeks ahead of normal recovery and can resume normal activities including golf now. I was advised to ease into it, so I may hit some balls tomorrow and see how I do. Might give 9 holes a try next week. This knee surgery went a lot better than my last with no bruising, less swelling and strength returning faster. Same surgeon, same procedure, same hospital. I worked it really hard at home the days just after surgery, so I guess that with the steady icing did the trick.

    Got home yesterday afternoon from my latest back surgery. What was supposed to take 2.5 hours ended up being 7 hours. Then I couldn't pee. By the time I finally convinced them I needed to be catheterized, I was literally screaming in pain. They got out over 900mL the first time and 550 the second. Had to lay flat for 12 hours, then slowly allowed to get up. 5 hours later I was out of there and headed to my recliner at home. With the aid of multiple pain relievers, I slept most of the night. Standing up is the most painful part but it's getting better.
