3rd day post op

Hi thanks for all the kind messages I have received

I am home now, I left hospital yesterday exactly 72 hours after going in, any problems were cleared up

Ive been exercising this morning on edge of bed and had a walk round

then resting with ice and so on

I have very little pain, the odd twinge now and again but I am keeping my pain relief topped up, I'm taking tramadol and paracetamol at present which is keeping any pain at bay

Just a fair bit of hard work now getting the bending to work

Thanks again Derek

  • hi Allanah

    don't know about brave, and I'm whinging quite a bit aswell, but we will get there, I'm really positive whats the point of all this and then not doing my bit towards it

    thanks again Derek

  • Great that you're home. It's the bends that are the difficult part - ice, stay on top of the pain, do your exercises and within a matter of weeks, all being well, you'll be dancing!

    Take care
