Doctor's 6 month checkup
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      8 comments

Well for once a good visit. BP was just a little high-but I hadn't gone back on one of my BP meds since surgery, so we are adding it back and see what happens. May not keep it if I can get the swelling down in my leg and back to walking mo... Read more
Keeping busy

Hi all, this has been a busy time of the year. Tax season is gearing up-so now working 6-7 days a week. Kinda tough after surgery. Still haven't built up my endurance yet-PT tried upping the exercises and I had to add back my pain meds and co... Read more

Well, this week I chose to work half days again-physical therapy was really making me sore and tired last week. So today I stopped at Target to pick up a prescription. I decided to go home for a nap before physical therapy and I was abou... Read more
Another week down
Sunday, December 04, 2011      8 comments

Boy am I glad I only went back to work half days. This week was very tiring. I started physical therapy and had trouble sleeping this week-just could not get comfortable in bed. I ended up going back on the prescription pain meds. That has h... Read more
Back to work and PT
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      6 comments

Last week I started back to work but only half days. The doc really wanted me to wait another month but that caused some issues with disability and my part time job with a tax firm. Now I'm glad they insisted-I was pooped after the first three... Read more

Today was my annual visit and xrays for the knee replacement last August. It was pushed a little later due to my back surgery. The good news is xrays look good-I have no complaints and next appointment in 5 years. Do still have to take K... Read more
