I had my right knee replaced last year. The left one has been hurting, but bearable--until about two weeks ago. All of a sudden, it decided to be a constant pain and get noticeably worse daily. I saw the doctor last week. An x-ray indicated that surgery was needed.
This morning I received a call from the doctor's scheduler. She stated that they had a cancellation on Monday and offered me the slot. What a blessing. I will have total knee replacement surgery on Monday morning. What??? You're happy about that?? Yes I am. Since I have been through the surgery before, I know that the end of my pain is in sight. Yes, the pain increase for a few days, but if I follow doctor's instructions and obey the physical therapist, I will improve significantly in a very short time. I am looking forward to the end of pain. I truly thank God for this blessing.
