Subject: Need to know...
Hi...I come here from time to time and I always get great answers. I wonder if what I'm about to write about is considered an ADC. I was told in July that I need a double knee replacement...the first would be Sept 5th 2019 and the second would follow in 6 months. from Day 1.. I was against this but was given no other Options...so I went along reluctantly with all the Visits I had to do prior to the Surgery..every night I could not sleep.. every time I thought of the surgery my heart would pound I was so anxious all the time. I had prayed to the Lord to get me out of this Please...in the meantime every day in my news feed on Facebook I was bombarded with Ads about Knee Replacement and how there are other alternatives..I was so pleased reading this that on August 19th my last Dr Visit before the Surgery I was so uncomfortable going over the final details about the Surgery that when I got home I broke down and cried and told my husband that I am NOT having the Surgery! I had a bad feeling from Day 1 about it...even walking into the Surgeons Office I didn't get good vibes there and I actually hated being in there...This was not fear of Surgery this was something deeper...my gut kept gnawing at me not to do it but I thought I HAD to...So on that day the 19th of August it all came out and my husband said if that's how I feel then we'll cancel and he called them and told them...they were a little taken aback but I was not backing down...that feeling was so strong! After that ordeal I went Searching the Net and read a lot about alternatives to knee replacement and was so relieved I knew that was the way for me to go. When all this happened back in July I was hardly mobile...was walking with a walker and I started taking Advil which helped tremendously get all the Inflammation down and I prayed to the Lord thanking him and to please show me another way. I now kept getting all kinds of Video's in my news feed about Physical Therapy and other means of treating the knees...WOW!! I knew in my heart I made the right decision. Now I chose a Physical Therapy place and am much better...doing Stretches to build up the knees and I am walking! I thank God every single night for showing me the way and leading me out of the Nightmare I faced daily...As I said this was a strong bad vibe about the Surgery. I am curious to hear what you all think.
Thank you.
Pat
