slowly feeling your surgery fail is one of the most disappointing and depressing things. especially when everyone around you is happy you’re finally “okay” in that one aspect. telling them would depress them so i just keep it to myself. makes me want to avoid all doctors and PT because i don’t want them to figure it out either and/or confirm it

    I'm with you and can understand especially telling them that you're not okay or fixed is so hard to keep in.
