6/16/2017 It’s Day 14 of Jim’s New Knee Project.
Starting yesterday or the day before, I think I turned a corner. I’m walking better, still with a walker of course but my leg is straighter and more confident with less of a limp.
I saw the surgeon today and the staples were removed as well as the waterproof bandage.
My pain Rx allowed for as many as 8 Hydrocodone per day but I’ve only once needed more than one per day since discharge. I’ve been using Tylenol except at bedtime to help with sleep. I’m going to try to skip that tonight and then test my driving skills on Sunday.
