This TKR recovery is a long haul! We WILL get there in the end. I am still looking back from time to time to my time in hospital. I was fortunate to have a very positive experience, which was a relief because I have had some bad experiences in hospital in the past. What I would like to suggest for this thread, as a bit of entertainment more than anything else, is for people to post ONE (just one!) hospital highlight and ONE (just one!) hospital horror. Probably keeping fairly brief would be best if possible. It could be entertaining! My start is:
highlight...the first time I stood up. I could feel my operated leg was wonderfully straight and it hasn't been that way for years!
horror...the time I realised that my nightdress was just that little bit too short. I hadn't factored in the fact that when using a walker you have to lean forward. I also hadn't registered that my fellow patient had visitors as I trundled off to the toilet...leaning forward!!!
