Well, here I am again, bloodied but unbowed. The Operation went well even though I could hear everything that was going on including bone being chiselled and burned. All that was four weeks ago today and although, I was told WHAT to expect, do have good days and bad days I know that given time all will be worth while. Nine of us had the operation on the same day, Wednesday 28th Sept and after we were all given a Physiotherapy test four of us were discharged on the Friday 30th Sept. I have to do half an hour of exercises 3 times each day but I must admit that I only manage 2.
I had hoped to come back with a very good funny but my friends, although still bombarding me with jokes have not come up with anything that I really want to pass on. I have had a bad day today, I decided to walk for a mile and when I returned my knee was so swollen and sore I did not know where or how to sit or stand. I rang the surgeon who performed the operation (he did a great job) and when I asked what I should do about the pain he gave me a bollocking saying I should not be doing any cross country walks (his words( until after the sixth weeks following the operation). I also got another bollocking from my dear wife who had been out doing the food shopping when I stupidly decided I could walk this far. I have finally realised that I have never been very good at taking advice even when the advice was GOOD.

Hi Les, hope by now things are good again. those orthopods are a funny bunch, reminds me of when I had bad knee pain and after a bunch of x-rays from every whichway he said to me that there appeared to be nothing wrong with my knee except for the pain. I am still not sure if it was a joke or not. Anyway I was given a bunch of excercises to do and the pain did go away but as soon as I stop doing them it comes back, so keep doing what he says.
