Thursday, July 23, 2009      2 comments

I am able to slowly use the exercise bike and get my feet all the way around. Though there is still pain with this, it is much improved. I am not using a cane or walker any more and can go up and down stairs normally, though slowly. I am so r... Read more
5 weeks since knee replacement
Tuesday, July 14, 2009      5 comments

I am tired of having pain, but now my other pains (besides the surgical site) are beginning to rival the surgery pain so I guess that is a sign I am recuperating. Saw my internist today and she prescribed Celebrex, but pharmacy said they had to... Read more
4+ weeks since knee replacement...doing well
Friday, July 10, 2009      2 comments

I won't say it doesn't hurt but it is getting better. I went swimming yesterday and didn't even bring my cane (wished I had it, though). I drove myself to the pool and the walk to the locker room was further than I remembered. I mostly walked... Read more

Sunday, June 28, 2009      6 comments

Got up the courage to go downstairs and wash my own clothes and that wasn't so bad afterall. I checked with the pharmacist and was told if I didn't take a pain pill for 8 hours I could drive (these are the weaker pain pills), so, of course, I h... Read more

I am still having lots of discomfort and trying to wean off the pain pills. Quite an ordeal, but ice is helping and moving around as much as possible and wearing TED hose is helping. So glad to be home in my own environment. Hopefully, in a w... Read more

My mother always grieved over my dad on Memorial Day. My birthday was the next day, on May 31st. He died when she was pregnant with me and I was born about 5 months after he died of heart attack with no warning at age 38. She lived to be 72 a... Read more

When I was at my top weight traveling was not fun. If I were to travel at 280 lb they would probably make me buy two airline seats. I went to Orlando from Minnesota four years ag... Read more

OMG, I forgot how I looked only 4 years ago, at my top weight of 280. One thing I cannot forget is how much pain carrying all that weight caused. I felt greatly improved when I got down to about 240. At one point I was down to 180 but now am ... Read more

Feet got cramps and are still sore today. I think it might be partly my new shoes. I noticed the right heel slipped a lot and that foot hurt the most. I am going to try different shoes today and see if that helps. I walked over an hour as my... Read more

I really like my new swimming pool... 84 degrees feels great, no shock getting in and I am sure I will go more often. The hours are a little restricted compared to my previous gym, but there are lap times when few people are there and no kids. ... Read more
