I had my surgery bright and early Saturday morning. It was quite an experience. The first interesting thing was the epidural I had! I was numb from the middle of my ribs to my toes. In the middle of the surgery I was having a little bit of trouble breathing because my lungs were a little numb. The body is amazing because as soon as he finished and took out the scope my breathing returned to normal. Even though I couldn't feel anything my body knew there shouldn't be anything inside it! I think it also helped that I was listening to some very good Christian music.
I was actually able to watch the whole surgery minus the cutting and stitching up at the end. The scope had a camera on the end so I watched it all through a TV! I was able to see inside my knee and all the intricate details. God sure did an amazing work when He created us!! I am on my way to a full recovery. I will have to bee in the hospital for 5 days total. I know if I were in the US I would be home already but things are very different here. Also the cost is much cheaper here is even after staying for 5 days it will be maybe 1/4 of the cost.
Something else very different about Korean hospitals is that if patients are able they can leave the hospital. So I went for a walk today over to 7-Eleven because I really wanted some Coke and chocolate! It was so strange to be outside with my IV and everything, but "when in Korea, do as the Koreans do!"
