  • Have to have knee surgery..

    I have been having problems with my left knee for some time. I had an MRI and some x-rays done recently and was refered to a orthopedic surgeon. I went to a Orthopedic surgeon today and he says I have to have knee surgery. I have what they call a lateral meniscus tear. I am going to have the surgery May 24th. It is going to be done orthoscopicly. It is a same day surgery, but I will be laid up for 4 to 5 weeks. That is going to be fun!! The surgery itself is no big deal, but the recovery is long. I have to also have physical therapy for some time as well.
    Meds I take:
    Elmiron, Elavil, Vagifem- for IC
    Albuterol, Flovent, Atrovent- for Asthma and lung problems
    Paxil, Clonazepam- for depression and Anxiety
    Atenolol- for rapid heart rate
    Nexium- for Gerd
    Levothyroxin- for Hypothyroidism
    Lasix, Pottasium- for edema
    Lipitor- for High Cholesterol
    I coated aspirin

    Been there, done that!
    Wishing you an uneventful surgery and recovery! Hopefully you'll be feeling much better once you're healed.

        I hope the surgery goes "just right" --- I hope it heals quickly.

        Warm healing thoughts,
        Donna
        Stay safe

            Thanks everyone for your kind words! I am not worried whatsoever. I just figure that this is just another adventure in life. No big deal. It will be over before I know it.
