I'm feeling a bit better today. I'm still heavily medicated but I've been able to move my leg a bit more. However, makeup posts are out of the question for now. I have to walk with crutches for 6 weeks and since almost anything involving moving or not moving my leg hurts like a bitch, I'm just concentrating on the Things That Matter More Than Makeup (which sucks). I really miss looking like a human being but the knee is more important. I need to get mobile. I need to heal.
Okay, here are two pics of my mangled limb. I strongly advise you NOT to look at them if you think you're sensitive. I have a total of 4 scars on my leg, the smallest one is about 1-2cm and the largest is about 15cm. The thing is that what they were supposed to do was an operation that would've been performed through arthroscopy (sorry, if there's a typo) BUT before the operation my doctor had discovered that I had a small anatomical problem with the axis of my knee so they had to perform a more extensive surgery. I've had some bone cut off, I have steel screws in my bones and my hamstring have been re-organized a bit.
Yeah, when I first saw my leg I started crying. Not because of vanity but because I wasn't prepared. So I spent 10 minutes in the hospital shower washing my hair and crying my eyes out. Oh yeah, I'm tough.
So for now my life is about small victories. Such as being able to flex my knee or getting to sit down on a toilet seat in less than one minute. So if there's an olympic medal for this kind of stuff, let me know :)
Here comes the leg:
