    Knee surgery

    Whelp day two of recovery...sucks lol I feel helpless cause Iím suppose to stay in bed for two to three day....itís because of Plica Syndrome. Constant popping and snapping in my knee would eventually eat away at my cartilage so itís a needed evil...luckily I have my beloved husband caring for me. I feel useless because so much needs to be done with the exotics and I have been tending to the animals all these years, so now itís on my husband to maintain them. Sadly Iím ocd with my babies so if itís not done to my standards itís not done right lol. I can just hope heís watched me and absorbed enough . Anyways Iíll have PLENTY of time on my hands for the next two weeks, hit me up with any topics that we could discuss! Tv gets BORING! Lol

    Uggggh, that's no fun! Thankfully they've come a long way with arthroscopic surgery. You'll be up and about in no time. I put mine off way too long, once I finally had it done I kicked myself for not doing it sooner.

    I know it gets boring, and I understand that useless feeling, but it's only a few days. Don't rush it, it's not worth a setback. Try to make the best of it. You've got your husband there caring for you (thankfully I had my [now] fiance) so you're in good hands.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Had arthroscopic knee surgery some years back...you'll be "back" pretty soon, meanwhile do what the doc says & heal up. Best wishes!

    Oh my goodness!!! I tried a nerve block for the first time a few months ago when I had my shoulder surgery. NEVER AGAIN!!!! I hated it!!! The numbness was brutal!!! I'd rather the pain any day.
