New day

Morning everyone,well i am still alive and am finding this recovery very hard i won't pretend it isn't. Thank goodness for tena liners. Complan for breakfast so i am getting the goodies i need. I slept last night only because i took a sleeping tablet i didn't want a repeat of the night before. No one tells you how hard the recovery was going to be,i feel like i have had the stuffing knocked out of me and really that has what has happened. I will be taking my time in my recovery and i won't be going very far any time soon. I keep getting down and having a cry does help.xxxxxx

Morning sylvi, glad you got a decent sleep, sleeping pill or not. It would do you no end of good, I am horrible if I don't get the right amount of sleep. You are bound t be feeling horrible, you have had a general anaesthetic for starters, that has a huge effect on yr body and will take a while for the effect to wear off - could be why you want to cry. Then you've been cut open, your innards rummaged about in while they did the procedure etc. I think it would be a minor miracle if you felt great - but you will eventually if you hang in there so ((((( today's big hug)))) to get your day started.

Not sure about the Complan breakfast though - I'm not keen on milky drinks - how does it rate compared to the yoghurt and milk you were on before 😉

Just take one day at a time, you're doing really well. You have had major surgery. Having a good sleep is important, so a sleeping tablet is a good idea. Best wishes Mavis xx

I'm glad you've slept a bit better. Being warm and cosy at this time of year has its merits. Are you well enough to do any colouring yet?

I know the ups and downs. Do you know Joanna bash fords books? She studied art in Edinburgh I think and says she really likes to see what people have done.

Keep warm. We're trying to go out for a drive but I have to negotiate three shallow steps which still make me cry.

My knee op in a week and a day now...

You can't underestimate sleep any time, but especially when you are recovering from a major surgery. Take good care. Cheers Doreen
