Recuperating from double knee replacement surgery is hard work, much like quitting smoking. I really didn't know what I was getting myself into. Yes, I figured it wouldn't be easy but I never thought it would be this hard! I am right where the doctor wants me to be in the mending process though. I just wasn't prepared for how hard the simplest, everyday task would be.... I often feel sorry for myself but it was my choice to do both knees at the same time so I just need to suck it up.... I'm getting better at walking, I don't have to lean on my walker with all my might anymore. I go back to the doctor in 6 weeks. I have PT 3 times a week and have to do my exercises 3 times a day. I hate that part but know it's very important for my recovery. My quit is 71 days strong, I feel really good about that! I only have the occasional crave and they are pretty easy to get through. I don't even think I'd call it a crave because I really DON'T want a cigarette, it's more like a memory or a quick thought that passes through my head. I hope everyone has a pleasant, peaceful Sunday! Enjoy and take care! Thanks for listening.
