Awake again! Even its its a standard procedure its still nice to be awake and hear that things went well! As I did not know much about how a survey like thisl worked I figured that would share my day with you guys as I am sure that I few of you will go through the same thing in the future!
So I got here (Sofiahemmet) and was put in a bed at 9.30. Got a few "pre" painkillers but did not feel them much at all. Was rolled down to surgery at around 12 where I got a little shot of something 5 mins before surgery, was like a nice little wine buzz, so that was nice as its great to feel good when you are about to get cut open. Then they tapped that up until I blacked out!
Surgery took 75 minutes as I apparently had super hard bones, the doc had to change blades as I wore the first out Since I like being special so it was great to see his surprised face when he tolk me this, and who knows, maybe thats helped me to stay injury free for the past 15 years! The ACL procedure dan be done in 3 different ways. Either you take a piece of the Patella, the hamstring or from a cadaver. I opted for the patella as that will give the strongest and most stabile result even if it can a bit more painful and the rehab is tougher. Went though all this will the docs here as well as the Red Bull rehab center, so I think I was in great hands while make this decision.
I then woke up around 17.00 , felt a little pain but not much at all. Got some morphine and after a while I felt great. Have not had any memory black outs that I have heard a lot of people that get. (at least i don't think so as I remember all the texts I sent right after the surgery)
As my time slot was a bit late in the day i am spending the night here. Janni came by to visit for a while but since visting hours are over she could only stay for a while, still nice to get a kiss and a hug!
Right now I am back working again as I get so bored from doing nothing, the knee feels good, just a slight little weird feeling but not painful at all, I am sure that the morphine is still in my body so I guess I will start feeling it a bit more here in a while, but so far so good!
Over all everything feels great and I can only say that it was a way smaller deal to do this that I would have expected, so nothing to worry about for the ones of you that will do this in the future. Since I have not done anything all day and been out for a few hours I am sure that I will have a hard time sleeping, so maybe i should start my Spanish online class right away! haha Will chck back once i have any updates! Thanks so much for all the comments and support, menas a lot when you are here all alone!
