Perhaps it was one of those pernicious supply chain issues and they had to use a substitute, but I swear it looks like the surgeon installed a cantaloupe instead of an artificial knee joint last week. I'll spare you the photo.

The surgery was successful: I'm on the long road to recovery. It has been an excruciating experience



Managing pain is the biggest obstacle as I am, of course, given contradictory information about the amount of medication: "use the minimal amount to resolve the pain"; "don't try to use too little as it will make it harder to control the pain later".

It is as if they assume I'm instantly an expert in knowing how a literal handful of pills will interact to control my pain. I have four pain medications: hydrocodone, pregabulin, Meloxicam and acetaminophen.
