well the op is over and it wasn't as bad as i thought it was going to be, they Dr's and Nurse's at the freeman hospital were fantastic, I have lots of allergies to medications mainly painkillers and they still managed to get me pain relief, they contacted a pain Dr who advised what i should take. On the downside my quads (thigh muscles) have decided they no longer want to work and i am now having a physio coming in everyday to help get them going again. That really is a weird feeling to want to move my leg and it just lies there not doing anything, the physio and my hubby hare having to move it for me, i am on crutches but its such hard work, and i am doing the exercises 3-4 times a day, but its very hard work and i keep getting very frustrated and upset by it. Im trying to keep the swelling down with lots of ice (bags of frozen peas). yesterday i managed a straight leg raise on my own, woo hoo!!
just now a long road to recovery, but i'll get there eventually.
hope everyone is ok in this horrible damp wheather
