Waiting for the other shoe to drop

Tonight I'm sitting in front of the television, post arthroscopic knee surgery, and relaxing.

Something about this seems...odd.  Yes, I have a big bandage on my knee.  Yes, it's wrapped in an ice pack and elevated.  Yes, the crutches are laying on the floor next to me.

But where's the pain?

I can feel a tiny little sting above the knee -- fairly minor, really.  There is a little stiffness, which could be swelling-induced (impossible to tell, under the bandage) or it could just be the layers of wrap around my leg.  But honestly, I expected some serious pain.

Haven't had a pain pill since I came home twelve hours ago -- not even a Tylenol.

Maybe I'll pay tomorrow, but so far I feel like dancing a jig!

  1. Okay, it dropped some today. The knee is more painful, weaker, and swollen. But I'm still managing to stay off of painkillers, elevate and ice. Should get progressively better from here.
