tina10915's Journal, 17 February 2013

Well I have been getting things prepared for my surgery. It is in 4 days. Never thought this day would come but I am glad it is here. I am scared. I am afraid of the outcome. Will I be able to walk again? Will the surgery allow me to start exercising? Will I be damaged goods? Meaning will I ever be able to find someone Who will love me for me in spite of my issues? Sounds kinda simple. The surgery is going to repair my knee. That easy. Or not........The doctor said my knee is in pretty bad shape. So now I need to deal with the what ifs. I am worried that I will never walk again. Why? Routine surgery for this doctor. I guess worse things can happen then not being able to walk but are we ever prepared for something we take for granted to be taken away for good? My other knee is now starting to hurt. I need to get this weight off for just the reason of walking. Doc says my weight was what made it worse but that the problems I am having are hereditary. Now what?

You just keep going. Things will be ok. It will work out the way it should. You need to keep doing [dieting] what you been doing. That will make your future better no mater what the outcome of the surgery is. All good thoughts go to you!!

Try to have postive thoughts. That can be very hard. Continue your healthy lifestyle. My thoughts and prayers.

Keep up the good work of focusing on your health and everything else will fall into place. I know a lot of folks that have had knee surgery and they are running, jumping, and doing fine. I also know people who have had complete knee replacements and they are walking, running, standing, and doing things they thought they would never do again. Good luck with your surgery!
