From my surgeon over my knee as i emailed his pa in l/spa. He is of the opinion that my ligaments have stretched some more. I have to get some crutches and see if they will help me by not putting pressure on the knee.
Its 3.15am and i am downstairs in pain,i thought i had left those days behind me as i had been sleeping quite well. Just goes to show you can't take anything for granted. Its not just my knee that is painful,my ra is as well. The weather isn't helping i know,but i didn't need to be down here today of all days as i'm seeing my lovely shrink this morning. I had hoped she might discharge me today, but that is looking unlikely the way i feel right now. I am usually resting in bed by 7.00pm as i am tired by then anyway,so i sit and watch csi on tv and then i settle down about midnight. I get fed up with this b""""y disease. It is relentless isn't it.
It was lovely the surgeon takng time out to ring me, he could have just got his pa to email me,but he didn't and he was very gracious to me. He has said that after the op i will be on crutches when i come out of hospital. God knows what he'll find when he opens me up. There is no infection there which is something to be thankful for. Thats what the nuclear scan was all about. Thats the second time he has rang me. I wish the other hospital was as caring with me as he has been.
Still haven't heard nothing back about my complaint of the way i have been treated. They asked for an extension and that has passed. I won't contact them as when this op is over hubbys solicitors are going to be writing to them about my treatment. They are waiting until after my op so that the surgeon can write a letter detailing what he found and what he has done to put it right.
This is a long blog so i will finish now and i hope that you all have a better nights sleep than i'm having..
