They used an epidural instead of general anesthesia so the wake up is sweet. No grogginess. In recovery now, discharge tomorrow.

So, you were conscious during the operation?

Day 2 (Tues) was a BITCH! Pain was at the 9-10 level with narcotics in me. PT came and started stretching and flexing me and that shirt HURT. I guess I'd forgotten. Came home Tues PM - still lots of pain and NARCO every 4 hours. Day 3 (yesterday) was WAY better. Off the narcotics now for good. Ice and Ibuprofen handle it fine. Slept thru the night last night and today it feels awesome. Ready to be done with this shit. Swelling is way down and doing my home PT doesn't hurt - it's just stiff. Gotta keep pushing the limits to avoid that scar tissue. I can walk almost normally now. It feels solid as opposed the last 6 months of painful limping. I can actually tell that both hips are the same height now. Gonna be hard not to overdo it when feeling this good, so I gotta be patient. No tee times this week! Oh, and the best news......................I finally POOPED today!:poop:

PapaD, I’m curious as to what you can and can’t do after knee surgery. Is jogging or running out of the question? My father had it done 10 or so years ago and he has mentioned something about not supposed climb ladders anymore and something about kneeling. He’s elderly now so those activities are long gone.

Last time doc told me the implant will last longer if I avoid activity that pounds it at impact. Swimming, bicycling, walking are best. Running, jogging, tennis-like sports are the worst. He also said avoid spiked shoes as overtwisting is bad too. I'm in the "younger" crowd for joint replacements so I'd like these to last.
