Update on knee surgery
Hello all. Val here. Thank goodness Bill's knee surgery was a success yesterday, but oh what a day... Despite informing doctors, nurses and anesthesiologists about his sensitivity to medication, and his past experience with post-op nausea, that's what caused the most discomfort yesterday. They told Bill they administered 4 different anti-nausea meds, but he still felt so bad it took 1 1/2 hours just to get out of the car when I got him home. Then around midnight the nerve block in his knee must have totally worn off. It took a while to get that pain under control! Aside from those two things, he's got a great attitude, and looking forward to starting physical therapy to regain strength and resume physical activity (including pickleball!) I would attach a photo, but I don't think he'd appreciate that right now!
