Got my new left knee last Wednesday, 7/7/2010. It was put in by Dr Gregory Stocks at Texas Orthopedic Hospital. It went smoothly as far as I know. It hurts more today than it did the day after surgery. I had a nice pain pump - all I did was press the button and the pain went away. I also had a catheter which sure was convenient. I just drank and drank water, juice, tea, etc. and didn't have to get out of bed.
I had my first physical therapy on my knee at Mem Hermann today. I had to be evaluated. After that the therapist, Carolyn was done with me. I told her that I came all way to exercise and I wanted to do some exercises. Physical therapy is the only thing that helps with the pain, now that I am out of the hospital.
