Hope today finds everyone well.
Couple of things to share today, firstly, hubs cooked me a lovely meal last night, which he had planned especially for me to be tasty but also very
nutritious. I enjoyed glass of wine with it, but knew as soon as I'd had
enough, whereas pre-op I'd have guzzled down more!
Secondly, I hope this might help others - I've seen knee sensitivity mentioned a good few times, with discomfort on and around the wound/scar. I was browsing You Tube yesterday and came across a funny little guy, with a
few tutorials. For the sensitivity,and nerve-end irritation, he suggested
"Wrapping" the knee. If you've still got stitches, wrap white kitchen roll (yes kitchen roll!) round the knee and secure with tape. If you haven't got stitches or staples left, then another the area with moisturizing cream, E45, or similar. Then wrap the whole thing, fairly tightly, in cling film. Yea, I know. Nutcase, right??
Wrong! I tried it, and was able to keep a cover on my entire leg all night-
previously I'd only been able to drape a silk scarf over the knee because it was so sensitive
Also, when I got up, the early morning stiffness was much less than
So yesterday's lessons - hubby may be a bit of a pillock at times, and very
insensitive, but he really does have my well-being at heart. And don't
dismiss things without trying them, even if it's being suggested by an odd
little man on you tube!
Oh and by the way, I've just lifted my leg onto the sofa unaided 🙌🙌🙌
So Happy Sunday everyone, hope everyone has a positive to celebrate
