In Spite of Me

My knee seems to be healing nicely from arthroscopic surgery, no thanks to me. Last night Studly Doright commented on just how well I was doing.

“You’re hardly whining at all,” he said.

I thanked him, then said, “I just can’t believe how little pain I’m having.” And followed that statement up with an abrupt movement, a quick bend of the knee, that had me in tears.

So all night I worried that I’d undone all the good the surgeon had done. I iced the knee with a vengeance (like regular icing, only with a great deal of scowling), and kept it elevated.

This morning I’m fairly certain no real harm was done, but I feel chastened and now have no plans to move my knee ever again. Ever.

Peace, people.

  1. Didn’t some wise person once say that pain is a reminder that you are not 100% read to tackle the world…or something like that? What a trade off- to be pain free and feeling confident only to have an abrupt reminder like that. I’m pretty sure you have lots of company in the inadvertent movement department following surgery. Perhaps surgeons build those unforeseen missteps by patients into their repair repertoire. Extra super glue perhaps?!
