This past Friday I went in for my knee surgery.
As an athlete and person that really loves to be active and an impulsive explorer, I feel that surgeries and certain injuries may affect us more than the norm. Both physically and mentally.
Depression can occur due to the simple act of not being able to be as mobile or active as the person once was. Anxiety can creep up closer to the date of the surgery when the patient begins to think more and more of the outcome.
“Will I be back to normal?
Will this cause other problems? ”
