By the time you read this blog entry, I’ll be a week into my recovery after bilateral knee replacement. I’m writing this the day before my surgery, thinking that what I say to you today could be true a week from now…or not! My assumptions”
1. I’ll miss my real knees
2. The road to recovery will be tough
3. My husband, my coach, will face HUGE challenges working with me
4. Drugs: I’ll grow dependent on them
5. I’ll never get my golf game back
The thing is, I’m having this surgery about two years before I actually need it. But my research says that timing is important…I don’t want to ruin my legs' gait/alignment before I have the surgery. I’m reminded of women who have their breasts removed before inevitable symptoms appear. That’s me. I KNOW I have osteo-arthritis in my knees. I KNOW I’m bone-on-bone, but the pain so far is a tiredness and slowness, not so much abject pain.
So, by the time this blog comes out, on November 1, I hope I’m wrong about all my five suppositions. Stay tuned and I’ll give you the FIRST WEEK report.
