Let me first say that I have been overwhelmed by the amount of feedback I have gotten from my first couple posts. I expected to maybe hear from one or two people over the course of my entire recovery. I guess I underestimated the power of the internet, number one, and just how common this injury is, number two. Then I also figured out that most people in this phase of the ATR recovery are at home, in front of a computer, so I don’t feel that special any more, hah.
Today has been rather uneventful. My pain level has gone way down; so there is good news out there for those of you who have not yet had the surgery. The real PAIN, in my experience, spans 48 hours after your Nerve Block wears off.
The Pain is no joke, so stay with the Pain Meds and find a good wooden spoon to bite into during the spells of agony! (half-way kidding)
cheers as always!
