First of all good luck. You won’t regret it.
My surgery was in October 2019.The surgery was pretty easy. My only complaint was I was given too much pain/nerve block which caused me to spend an extra night in the hospital.
I had very little discomfort from the surgery itself. I did use ice afterward for the swelling, both in the hospital and at home.
I did a lot reading prior to my surgery and attended a “what to know” seminar, which was really helpful.
I used a walker and cane for a couple weeks after. I also used the elevated toilet seat, which was a great help.
Are you going to PT after? I went for 5 sessions.
I’m running a little and biking a lot.
Good luck and keep us updated.
