I'm starting to take bleary stock of this second knee. It's not been as easy as no 1, partly because I had a lot more bruising. I saw my physio yesterday and (unlike last time) she's encouraging me to go slowly, to start building up walking distances with 15 there and back along our hallway. She explained that it's not long since my first one, 5 + months and not to put too much strain on that one, and to build up slowly after the bruises. She's also concerned not to risk a RA flare.
Im so grateful to be supported by someone so sensitive to my needs, it also makes me feel much better able to find my own pace.
I won't pretend it's been easy, the wound fizzed a lot at night and when the nurse removed the stitches she found I'd healed so well that I'd healed over them a bit. And I've got cramp like muscle feeling.
So the next week is going to be low key, I just wanted to let people know a bit more about the healing pain.
Off to look for bluebell woods near Peebles this afternoon.
