Well, the 'scope wasn't bad at all. I was home by 9:30 am! I am, however, all wired up with:
- a pump that sends novacaine to the affected knee continuously (no, I can't "push" it)
- a cool water pump thingy that wraps around the knee. You have to lie on the bed to use it 95 minutes a day/off 2 hrs/on 95 minutes/etc all day but not all night
- a continuous flexion gizmo that the leg is strapped into and you use with the CWPT for about an hour three times a day
All this equipment keeps me close to home and close to my bedroom. The knee is achey and somewhat stiff, but not really painful. I've got reading and phone calls to keep me busy. With El Jefe as my practical nurse and Babs as my personal chef, I can't complain. In fact, I may like it too much!
