i am so happy. get your fanny in the back seat fibro mate! i went to the ortho surgeon yesterday. on may 15th i will be having knee surgery to repair years of good hard use. the miniscus (sp?) and we may have to grind a bit on a bone to smooth it again. won't really know till we get in there. he said i could have a spinal and watch the whole procedure or be knocked out. i really would like to watch. invading my spine is not worth it tho. darn!
he is going to treat me as he would an athlete so i will be in aquatic therapy on the 4th day post op. yeehaa! an athlete, can you believe that? i swelled up with pride when he said that. me? an athlete? well, hey, why not? i patted my body later and told her how proud i am of her.
i have had this since i was 20. that's 30 years! so as i turn 51 i will be on my way to freedom from a pain. and freedom from any pain is on my top ten list of things to enjoy!
so, no getting complacent for this girl. gotta keep up the dancing and walking and all the other little exercises and stretches. he says i will breeze thru this. why? because of my attitude and the condition of my body. he says it will be a great pleasure for him to operate on me. hope he is as good a surgeon as he is a nice person.
i have been all giggly since yesterday afternoon.
i have small concerns about fibro. my fibro mate does love to focus on my weakness. well, i will just have to hide this one, won't i? giggle.
