Its been 10 days since my last post so I wanted to see if I could compare progress with anyone out there kind enough to reply.
I am at 7 weeks post op tomorrow (TKR) and I am 47 years old. I had my 6 week follow up with the consultant and he seemed really pleased and made another follow up for 6 weeks time. I had my 5th visit with the physio on Friday and he has signed me off for a month as he is so happy with my progress. I walked approximately 5 miles on Saturday, have driven to work 3 times in the last week (140 mile round trip) (not a good idea as I had issues afterwards that I previously posted) I am visiting the gym 2 to 3 times a week, exercising, stretching, swimming and generally doing all that I should be !
So why am I still feeling a bit low ?? I can't seem to shake out of it at the moment and have been feeling paranoid about my job (Sales Director). I just have the feeling that out of sight is out of mind even though I have worked from home since the day I came out of hospital ! I went to work feeling that I had to but it set me back slightly so I am working from home this week.
I am probably being a bit soft and I can usually pick myself up when I feel sorry for myself and in fact just typing this makes me feel better.
Has anyone else felt low following the Op or insecure about their job? I am putting it down to age and frustration that I can't yet keep as fit as I would like to be and that I am used to being out and about with work and not isolated and out of the way.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
