My knee

Oh my knee! I had completely forgotten about that.

Well after completely ignoring my surgeon’s advice of doing nothing but keeping my knee up for 3-4 days, it’s doing pretty well. I saw the physio on Tuesday and my recovery is advanced compared to normal. I suppose it was either going to go one way or the other after my exploits Sunday night, but it feels strong and I hardly use the crutches to get around because frankly it is quicker walking.

The physio has given me a whole programme of exercise, which builds up to walking, swimming, gym work, cycling, running and then sports but unfortunately they advise no contact sport or skiing for 12 months.

I have been at home on my own these last two days and struggle to sit and do nothing, but my Mum comes to visit tomorrow for 10 days, so at least I have someone to make me a cup of tea!

  1. I don’t want to nag Chicago, but you really do need to keep the fizzy gold fluid intake up.

    Otherwise all sorts of horrible things could happen.

  2. You know what KH, I had a can of Heineken the other night and it made me feel lousy.

    Clearly I need to try again!

    • Yeah, that sounds about right. The first two or three are going to do that. It’s when you get to six or seven that the medicne really starts to work.
