I've Been Gone, Now I'm Back

Let me summarize the last five days...


My Theme Song at the moment goes like this:

My legs are shaky and my knees are weak,
Can't seem to stand on my own two feet,
I'm in pain... I'm all shook up...

At least I'm able to be at home. That's a vast improvement over just how loud I can vocalize my pain.

Yes, it hurts like a SOB.

I can't stay up and chat but I did want to say 'hi' and let you know that I managed to read a few posts on my iPhone. Y'all have been busy.

Thanks also for the best wishes. Means a lot.

Gotta get back in bed.

    Leroy, glad to see that you are back home and on the road to recovery! :)

    I hear BBQ is a good pain reliever.
  • Darn good to see you everyone else I've been watching the updates. I know Ms. Hen has you covered but if you need any thing don't hesitate to let me know.

  • Good Leroy,
    Wish I was home to bring you something to eat! I am sure you are starving...not.

    Glad you're home and surgery was successful. Hope you've got some stuff in the coop that you're only supposed to drink for medicinal purposes. :)

    Hoping you have a speedy recovery!
    Does this mean we're going to see a Leroy with more "Spring" in his step? :woohoo: :evil: :ermm:

    Glad you are home! You will be dancing soon! :) :)
  • dhuffjrdhuffjr Posts: 3,182
    Glad your home Leroy!

    Better that you've not had any big episodes while you were "incarcerated"

    Lt. Bob and I are rooting for you. I've (Sundown) had both knees replaced and I agree, it is painful. But, go to physical therapy like they tell you and WORK and before long you'll be out dancing with MollyShark.

    . if Spring Hen doesn't kill you for your incessant whining. ;)

    Lt. Bob here Sir, I reiterate Sundown's words Sir. Get well soon Sir!

    Hang in there! It will get better, and TAKE THE PAIN MEDICINE LIKE IT IS PRESCRIBED! You don't get points for hurting.
  • MaineggMainegg Posts: 7,787
    Hey Leroy so happy to see a post from you :) like has already been said, do what they say and work through the pain ;) and be nice to Judy!!!
  • NucmanNucman Posts: 59
    I've seen many patients go through the hell of knee replacement. They all seem to do GREAT as long as they follow the dr's orders and go through with the brutal demands of P.T. I wish you well and a speedy recovery so that you can be firing up the egg real soon!!!
  • SWOkla-JerrySWOkla-Jerry Posts: 639
    Great to see you back Leroy. I will have a few stiff scotches tonight to ease your pain.

    Hey Chicken:
    I am glad to hear you are on the downside of the pain. It can only get better as each day comes and goes. Easy for me to say and you are the one going through this. All we can do is wish you well and send you our extra pain pills!
    Take care LeRoy. You'll be standin' tall in a couple of weeks!

    Good to hear of your recovery, and hoping you get just enough good meds to ease the ache.
  • Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,432
    There's no place like home. :)
    Hope recovery goes well and the pain subsides.

    Hey Sprung Chicken,

    Glad to hear your back from the repair shop! Don't think of the pain my friend but keep reminding yourself how fortunate you are to be able to have it done. I was born with every joint in my legs needing replacing and will probably take them to the grave that way. Pain gets to be an old, old friend. By the end of summer you will be dancing that lovely wife of yours all over the state of Texas. You are a very lucky man! ;)

  • Very glad to hear you're home and on the mend. Sorry to hear about your discomfort, maybe Spring Hen could cook up some "Egged" comfort food for you. Get well quick my friend.
    Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow is always Sunday.

    Glad to see you're back. No doubt you're being well taken care of at home. Hope you have a speedy recovery.
