Hi Jenny, good to hear from you, hope you get home tomorrow and can start on the road to recovery. Take things very slowly and if you are anything like I was after surgery be prepared to be tearful.

Best wishes

Annette

Well done girl πŸ˜†

Glad it all went ok for you 😊 Now make the most of the recovery time. Keep flexible while not over doing it, just little short walks, but often throughout the day.

Apart from that, relax alot. Hugs Jo :))))

Hi Jenny, great to hear everything went okay and that you'll soon be home. Just take things easy at first and don't overdo it - there's a there n line between pushing yourself and overdoing it! From personal experience don't be a martyr where painkillers are concerned, especially in the early days, they enable you to get moving - and sleep!

Oh good. I have just found all these posts. How lovely to hear that you are on the mend. As this is now eight months later, I hope you are almost back to your old self again. With best wishes to everyone else as well, mine is up-and-coming, I am trying to keep my eye on the light at the end of the tunnel, and not the path between.
