half way into week 8

Well I am now half way into week 8

Feeling good.

I now have my date for knee replacement operation 20th January.

I will feel so good when I go for my pre op assessment and tick form to say I don't smoke

I will be 10 weeks no smoking by then so even better.

I will be taking my patches in with me though because as I am doing this step by step and just because I will be in the hospital for a few days does not mean I will jump the last stage patches.

One thing I am not looking forward to is trying to get up my stairs on crutches :eek: I am assuming I will need crutches for a while??????? Any tips welcome

The band sensation in my head is now passing at last so think it was another trick the addiction was playing on me.

Not sure. Will have to ask at the pre assessment clinic.

When I broke my foot many years ago and was on crutches I couldn't use them for stairs and went up and down on my bum but I wasn't shown how to use them then.

At least once I am down stairs I don't need to go up them until bedtime as my bathroom is down stairs.:D
