Total Knee Replacement (TKR) Surgery

Well, I went under the saw again yesterday afternoon when Dr. Schall replaced my knee. I had a hard time sleeping so I listened to Bach in the Bath most of the night and was then able to sleep a little. Sleep is very difficult the first two days after surgery due to the nurses coming in and checking vitals. Mine were fine.

I noticed that that the pain was different this time, perhaps more intense. I had a shot for pain, which was to last for 8 hours. PT came twice today. First time was very hard, she gave me some exercises and then I was able to do them on my own. When she came back, we went for a walk down the hall. That went well.
