Shoutout for Guided Imagery with Knee Replacement
I was so anxious about my upcoming knee replacement surgery at the end of April that my friend recommended your guided meditation and affirmations. I listened faithfully to the guided meditation for a week or so before the surgery and continued afterward with the affirmations and sometimes the meditation for about 5 or 6 weeks. (I skipped 2 or 3 days about week #3 after the surgery and became quite distressed. I was quickly reminded to listen again.)
The surgery went well and I had very little anxiety through my hospital stay and recovery period. At the six-week follow up appointment, the surgeon said that I was at the point of healing that most people take three months to reach. I "graduated" from physical therapy last week and my progress was excellent -- my measurements exceeded the goals and my scar has healed nicely. I even lost 5 pounds!
I am deeply grateful for the competent and caring surgeon, nurses,
physical therapists and other medical people who cared for me -- and to
you for reminding me of that truth. I am also grateful for the prayers
and loving support of my husband and family and friends and for my own
body's ability to heal so well -- and to you for reminding me of these
blessings, as well.
I have already recommended your surgery guided imagery and affirmations to a friend whose friend is anxious about her future knee replacement. Thank you for the work that you do.
