I am so glad you are home, and that you have some wonderful help as you recover!
Now is not the time to even be thinking about
it, but I think I wrote before that the knee surgery might not be that bad. My dad had his in November and recovered very easily. He is 70, and although he doesn't have IBD he does have sensitive bowels. We joke that the change of water from one town to the next upsets his stomach. It is probably IBS. However, he used pain medication for about
2 days and then he had been so accustomed to living with knee pain that the recovery pain was nothing much in comparison. Apparently moving around will be fine. It is the standing that will be hard at first.
Anyway, I'm just saying that you shouldn't worry about
that now. You should relax and recover for a while. Get lots of rest.
