Its actual Sunday night now and has been 2 days since surgery so I'm trying to remember all this from memory.
We stop by to get the prescriptions filled on the way home. 3 in total. Percocet (for the pain), an antibiotic, and a third to help with nausea. The nurse informed us that one for nausea was a suppository. I told the wife not to evan bother getting that one filled. I would have to be feeling real bad to take that, and I was feeling pretty good. She said "We'll get it ,in case"
The wife takes me home and gets me settled before going to pick our youngest kid up from school and to pick the prescriptions up. I had heard horror stories of trying to use stairs with crutches, but I had very few problems. Slow and steady. No problems.
The wife gets back and the drugstore had shorted us 1 of the prescriptions. YES! It was the suppository.
I'm on my butt rest of the evening with the leg elevated taking pain killers every 4 hours. I'd heard it was best to take them evan if you didn't feel like you needed them. I'm supposed to keep the knee iced but the bandages on it are so thick that none of the cold from the ice seems to be able to permetate through to the actual skin. I'm really feeling half way descent. Alot different from the last surgery I had where I couldn't sleep at all because of the pain.
I evan made it up the stairs and slept in our king size bed.
Finally, thats it for surgery day. I wanted to get this all down for others who go through this. Reading other blogs about the surgery helped me know what to expect.
