Update: Jim Hoft’s Knee Surgery

As most of you read in yesterday’s post, Jim had a knee replacement surgery yesterday morning.  Jim would like me to tell everyone that his surgery has gone well and appreciates all of your kind notes and prayers.  Of course, the pain is miserable, but it will all be worth it after he heals.

    Constantly checking your excellent site w/ all the timely & need-to-know newsworthy posts, so feel like I know you & want to wish you all the best for a apeedy recovery. Thank you for all your effort keeping us Constitutional conservative patriots informed & inspired in these precarious times.

    Rest that knee ’til it heals, Jim. Keep plenty of WD-40 on it after you’re up and about on it(keeps it from squeeking), and you’ll be right as rain in no time.
    All kidding aside, GET WELL SOON!

  • Rose

    Pray they find the right combo to make Jim very comfortable – sorry it had to be a surgical fix, but I know many find it a great relief. Praying all goes very well and he is up and back at it real soon.

  • P. Aaron

    Rest as well as you can & get better. Fortunately, FOX News has babes like Megyn Kelly, Shannon Bream, Dana Perino & Andrea ‘Tarantula’ to make news less sufferable.

    Heal up well Mr. Hoft & do not forsake those awesome pain meds…the first few weeks, you’ll need & want them.

    Been there, done that, twice in the last few years. Most important thing: physical therapy and aqua therapy to regain range of motion afterwards. I hope you’re in a hospital where they have PT twice a day, it really helps to move the joint a lot in the first few days. Immobilizing it is the worst thing you can do. Take the pain pills on schedule and you’ll be just fine.

    Jim, hurry up and get well soon will ya!

    Isn’t that a miracle…?
    Nowadays doctors can replace a knee or a hip like switching out ball joints on a Chevy.
    You’re in…you’re out.

    Best wishes Jim.

    Of course, the pain is miserable, but…

    That’s what narcotics are for, and he should enjoy them while he’s getting them. 😉

    Best wishes,Jim for a speedy recovery.As a knee replacement veteran I know what you are going through.It hurts like h*ll but physical therapy is the best way to get that range of motion going.Take your pain meds about an hour before you exercise,it really helps.And trust me once you get that knee where you can move it like your good one that pain will ease up and you will feel so much better.Good days are just ahead of you.God bless you and hurry back.

    JIM,
    I HAD KNEE SURGERY. THEY CLEANED IT OUT, PULLED OUT A PIECE, FIXED IT UP AND THEY SAID IT WAS TEXT BOOK. I HAD MY INTERNIST WITH ME ALONG WITH MY HUSBAND (ANOTHER DOCTOR) AND EVERYONE WHO LOOKED AT THE PICTURES AFTER THE SURGERY, WHILE I WAS IN RECOVERY ASLEEP, AGREED THAT THOSE PICTURES LOOKED AS IF I WAS A NEWLY MINTED BARBIE DOLL FROM CHINA.

    NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT KNEE FROM THE SURGEONS STANDPOINT.

    THAT WAS 4 YEARS AGO. I’M STILL IN PAIN, THEY STILL WANT TO GIVE ME INJECTIONS, THE KNEE LOCKS UP AND I GO FLYING ONTO THE PAVEMENT AS THE LEG STAYS ONE PLACE BUT I’M ONE STEP AHEAD WITH MY OTHER LEG AND BODY.

    I THINK I WOULD’VE RATHER HAD THE ORIGINAL KNEE PAIN, WITH NO LOCKING OF THE JOINT BECAUSE THEN I COULD WALK WITHOUT FEAR OF STUTTERING ACROSS THE SIDEWALK.

    ITS NEVER EVER EVER THE SAME AFTER SURGERY. THIS MAXIM GOES FOR ANY PROCEDURE. SURGERY IS INVASIVE AND ONCE THEY GO IN AND MUCK AROUND – YOU’RE DIFFERENT.

    GOOD LUCK JIM. IT FEELS BETTER FOR AWHILE AND THEN SLOWLY OVER TIME IT GOES BACK TO BEING THE SAME BASED PROBLEM AND THEY’LL SAY “OH, YOU NEED MORE SURGERY” – DON’T DO IT.

    I’M WAITING FOR A KNEE JOINT THAT’S MADE OF ANTIMANTIUM – LIKE WOLVERINE.
    THEN? I’LL GO IN FOR A FULL KNEE REPLACEMENT. UNTIL THEN? I SUFFER WITH THE PAIN AND PUT ON A KNEE BRACE FROM WALGREENS.

  • KAY

    i hope you have a better outcome.
    best wishes,
    kay

    My sister had this last month, Jim. 3 weeks and the worst is over. But here’s a tip–have someone clear-headed monitor whether you are getting your medications as prescribed and on time. My sister is a nurse and it was all she could do to get pain medications delivered when she needed them. The staff may be overworked, and you suffer for it, unless you or someone is demanding enough.

  • Militant Conservative

    Remember the question to ask ANY surgeon before a surgery.

    “How many of these do you do a year?”

    I know doctors that do more than 365 of them in a year.

  • bad actor

    #35 Kay – I sympathize with you, but thankfully your negative outcome is in the minority. Most, including my 2 replacements, are just great a full 2 years later. I expect them to continue to be super for at least another 28 years.

    Jim – if you don’t already have one on loan, you could benefit from using a CPM (continuous passive motion) machine. My knee doc prescribed it and I used it for a few weeks as soon as I came home from the hospital. Twice a day for at least a half hour. You lay on your back with the leg in the apparatus and it flexes your knee slowly. It did wonders for my knee replacement recovery.

    Get well soon, Jim!

  • TRN

    Get Well Jim,

  • all the best jim!

  • Linda

    God Bless You and may you have a speedy recovery, Thank God for computers! 🙂

  • Sandy

    Missing you — take care and do what the doctor says.

  • You’ll be jumping back in the ring in no time, Jim.

  • Get well quickly, Jim. I’m told the pain relief is well wroth it!
    I’m probably up for that myself in a few years; I gather the pain relief is tremendous after the first couple of days, but it takes a few month to relearn how to walk again. I figuring on doing mine at retirement and before I start doing part-time charity work in Africa. My doctor told me to plan on a full year (for both knees ) and to be ready from something like the Ugandan bush.

  • Red

    All the best to you in your recovery.

    Good thing you did this before Obamacare kicked fully in, I believe I read on page 12,752, section 5001, subsection 427, paragraph 825. line 720 that Conservative bloggers are not allowed knee replacements. 😉

    Get well soon buddy!!!
