I’m starting my pre-op for a partial knee replacement, which will take place next Tuesday, March 4th. I’ve had 9 previous knee surgeries and I’m really ready to have surgery. However, the pre-operative stuff is quite disturbing. I have to shower twice a day with something that looks like cherry cough syrup, feels like cherry cough syrup, and doesn’t lather. Am I clean? I don’t think so. It’s a trick and the hospital will charge an extra $2000 for this procedure. After all, don’t doctors have to put their kids through college?
I know, my legs don’t appear to be great. That’s okay, they will once the sun comes out. Well, maybe they’ll just look a bit nicer. Sorry, I got side tracked. I was just excited to post pictures, perhaps photos of ships would have been better.
After my expensive shower, they have instructed me to put an antibiotic up my nose. Not thrilled with this, it feels weird, and I can taste it. It’s an ointment too so it’s sticky. I’m sure the doctor can put another child through private school with the cost of this since it makes no sense. I’ve never had to wash with cherry cough syrup or cram ointment up my nose for surgery. But then again, I’ve never had a partial knee replacement. I wonder what they have you do for a total knee?
