Hi. I just really want to give a Huge thanks to everyone who has messaged me or posted on this site. As I've said before I am a 57 year old twice widowed lady. Who suffers from depression anyway. I have severe arithrits in all my joints and I'm no stranger to surgery. But this op.was the most painful thing I have ever had done! My surgeon told me he had to make a bigger incision that usual just due to the state my knee was in. Hence I have a wound that runs up over my knee and approx 8 inches above. My son said it looks like I belong hanging in a butchers shop ha ha. But joking aside. This as a lot of you already know is hard work and extremely frustrating and painful. I have in the first 2 weeks felt so depressed. Isolated (I live alone) and at times frightened.you can't even escape in sleep because you can't get comfortable. In those lonely times when I didn't know if what I was feeling was normal. I kept up to date with all your posts and I can't tell you how much this has helped me both physically and mentally. I'm now just over 3 weeks .And I know it's still early days for this op.but I'm noticing little improvements. Now I feel I will get there. The pain I still have is normal and I'm copying with it much better. And it's all down to you. So sorry this is a bit of a novel.but thanks everyone and good luck to all of us. I will of course still be on here following everyone's journey as well as posting my own when required. Xx
