The deed is done!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

I had my surgery yesterday. All-in-all, not too bad, even though I threw up in the car on the way home. I have physical therapy today at 11:00. I'm anticipating some pain since I'm pretty sore. They put me in traction to separate my joint so they could fix it all up. My muscles on the right side hurt, and my throat hurts too (they gave me a breathing tube).

But, once the soreness from the operation goes away, I think it's going to be alright. Moving around on crutches is kind of hard though.

Thinking positive - 6 weeks on crutches, and hopefully after that I will be able to start running again. I am looking forward to running with just the regular pain of sore muscles, not the joint pain I have had for 10 months!

    You do have a great attitude and with that positive outlook I have no doubt that you will be running in 6 weeks! Take it easy and rest up. Hope the PT isn't too tough on you!

    I'm glad the surgery is done and over with! Now I'm also wishing you a speedy recovery and an excellent year-end celebration that involves running, relatively pain-free!!
