#47 1 Month summary: total knee replacement

November 25, 2018

It's fair to say that this last month has been the most challenging of my life. That might sound dramatic, but I am being sincere. The pain associated with a knee replacement is off the chart and cannot truly be described or fully appreciated unless you have been through the operation yourself. Add to this an intolerance to all opiate pain meds, and you can only begin to appreciate the challenges that I have faced.
