Seattle, WA (PressExposure) March 05, 2014 -- Are you recuperating from a total knee replacement, also known as a tkr, and unable to sleep? Do you wonder when, and if, it will ever end? Feeling isolated while going through this challenging time? You are not alone.
Booktoots Healing is proud to announce the release of its newly published book titled Dealing With Insomnia After a Total Knee Replacement. Insomnia is a common, but minimally discussed, side effect of this surgery. Containing over 100 real-life stories written by patients going through the same thing, this book provides support and encouragement to help patients realize they are not alone while experiencing sleep disorders during recuperation.
After undergoing a total knee replacement herself, author Marie Buckner started a blog and began writing about her experiences. "I was sleeping only two hours a night for months on end. Nothing I did made it better. I was becoming depressed, frustrated and no one understood what I was going through. If I did tell a friend about it, the response was "it's no big deal". It was a big deal to me. I went online to do research and didn't find anything that helped. After so much time of not understanding what was going on, I wrote about it on my blog," she said. This post sparked an international discussion and is the book's foundation.
With stories ranging from gratitude expression for finding a forum to discuss recuperation concerns to supportive statements providing personal insight to other patients going through similar experiences, this book provides comfort and inspiration to readers.
The diverse range of real-life patient stories, from positive to negative, all center upon making the most out of a total knee replacement recuperation. Stories have a foundation of encouraging and inspiring others not to give up. Readers will know they are not alone after reading these compelling stories.
Available in print, Kindle and, ebook versions, this much-needed book is the first of its kind. The book is available for purchase at Amazon, CreateSpace, Kindle, Barnes & Noble and other book publishing sites. It is also available at her website at booktoots dot com.
