I was doing so well and I’ve gone backwards. I’m really emotional which just isn’t me. I’m absolutely exhausted all the time. I have to work as I alone support my family. TKR and Osteotomy on 9th Jan went back to work on 8thFebruary on phased return for two weeks; this was at 4 weeks post op. Then full time at 6 weeks.
Can anyone advise me of how many exercise sets I should be doing a day and for how long. I’m walking around office hourly but tonight have had to take oral morph again as in agony. I’m on 130 bend and -9 straight. I’m 8 weeks now post op.
The advise I need please of what exercices and how much a day? How long on each set: I’m setting my phone alarm to walk around every hour.
How much medication are people taking at 8 was post op. I understand everyone different but rough idea would be helpful.
Did anyone else feel miserable and emotional? I have been very tearful this week which really isn’t me.
Work is being supportive but then giving me extra cases and sending me away on training in 2 weeks.
Also I don’t feel tired; I feel exhausted. Does anyone else feel like this?
I am a 60 yr old children’s social worker who works full time.
Sorry to be a nuisance but some help would be greatly appreciated.
