TODAY, I will continue to lay around and heal. It has been 2.5 weeks since my surgery and I think I’m doing well. I still have a lot of pain – and knee pain, which is new – but the wound looks good and I’m able to walk (in the house) unaided. So that’s really good!
HERE WE GO!

Dawn, the knee pain may be a result of skeletal re- adjusting after favoring an injured joint. Don’t ignore that warning sign as if you do fortoo long, the hips won’t be the only things needing replacement. Get a referral to an orthotics specialist (as in fully licensed though the techs are pretty darn good; and if you have VA coverage with your husband’s career then for sure the VA has a lot of them). Even just custom shoe inserts or temporary bracing will provide major relief. My SO and his now-retired former business partner, both orthotists/prosthetists, had VA contracts for helping folks with this exact issue. Good luck. It is awful to be sidelined away from much of your four-legged family!
