Can symathise as I am still waiting for the torn ligament to be repaired 17 months so far. I have just had to do what I can all this time and use the stick even though it hurts to put weight on leg. The first pain you are feeling now lasted about a month or more then one had to get going then I had to get used to it.. I know you have a lot of loving help there so get well soon Jilly.
Now you will join ranks of the many who complain of knee pain it is SO debilitating to say the least. You will walk again. I am sure there are some excellent physios who will also come to your aid when the intial pain wears off.
I might have my op next month and I will still be going it alone until I can walk on leg mentally planning and devisng ways to get to loo such as sitting and peddling one foot on the walking frame and hoping to get to the loo and basthroom somehow, Crutches are not an option due to the arthitid shoulder the metal one aargh a fall can change all your whole life patterns in a second...
Wish hat you be up and dancing for Easter anyhow and your birthday next month!!
Wondered where you have been of late Jilly.. Still conquering the Mac....I am, on one now it is not set to my sight so I can barely read the words.. different ways!! I will have to learn this too . How are you going with yours now? We get so accustomed to other that the new does seem daunting with all the geegaws and button gadgets.
