Hope the hot bath helps! I think that sounds like a great start. You can always work your way up, but you have to start somewhere first! :)

Hot and then cold pain relief. A bath, shower and then maximum 15 minutes cold compress. Frozen peas or if you are posh, petit pois. Any longer and you can cause nerve damage.

And it sounds loads. I'm in awe. I walked for an hour yesterday, couldn't wait for it to end, despite trying to educate my husband in the hedgerow wild flowers. I want to get back to walking as a pleasure, not a task. I will. Take care.

It's a very good start jaov 4,064 steps is really good going when your not use to it. Slowly build on it and it will get easier. Hope the hot bath help ease your pain.
