Betsey....We are all praying for you today!! Just know that it will be rough for the first weeks or month after the surgery but it will be worth it in the long run to get that new knee!! I have 3 friends and one relative that have had this done on one or both knees and they are so happy now that they have less pain and are active again even playing tennis and golf!!
Just make sure you speak up again today with the Anesthesiologist about your nausea and go over the pain meds you take now and that you are concerned about pain control afterwards...
Don't worry about rushing to update us....just get back online whenever you feel up to it....Just follow Drs. orders!!...
Sending some hugs (( ))
