what do you know, I´ve got a date for my operation!!!
I had an appointment at a different hospital this morning, and the doctor there was really nice. He took one look at my x-rays and had a quick look at my knee and the next question was”So when do you want to have the op?”
My answer obviously being:” As soon as possible”, he looked at his schedule and said: ” will next week do?”
I was a bit shocked to be honest, but now I am really happy. And I am actually glad that I waited the 2months before I went to see another doctor, I feel so much better now, than I did in March, a lot stronger and more confident, and that can make a whole lot of difference with the recovery. Losing 30kg certainly doesn´t hurt either.
I hope I will be up and about in no time, especially because I should be able to use the leg straight after the op. I will be starting physio straight away and will be leaving the hospital after about 10 days if everything goes well. Then I will hopefully go to a reha-clinic, for a couple of weeks, to learn how to exercize with the new knee and learn to walk with it properly.
God, I will probably not sleep very well for the next week or so, lol, I am always a nervous wreck before things like this…
But who cares, I´m sure it will all go well.
Good night folks
