I had the procedure 6 days ago and was given the advice that I would take 3 or 4 days to recover. NO WAY! I feel really terrible. Just putting my socks on left me shattered and all I am fit for is sitting slumped in an armchair. I have been reading the posts on this site and realise I am not an unusual case. I wish I had been warned. I am 78 and have been pushing myself to do things I shouldn’t.
