I returned to work, on a phased return, yesterday, after 11 weeks off. I am semi retired so phasing me back in is easier.
It was good to get back with my friends there.
There is a but... I was absolutely exhausted by the time I went home & my knee was really painful. It was & still is very swollen. I am about to ice again. I am a receptionist in a (mainly) NHS dental practice & am on my feet a lot, with climbing onto a step stool (using unoperated leg) to get records out of a tall filing cabinet & leaning over the desk to take payment.
However it feels good to be back 'in the world' again.
I am still having physio, my bend still needs work, but am getting there. Still on the co codamol 2 or if needed 3 times a day.
There is light at the end of the tunnel!
Happy new year folks.
