    Guess who's been silly, yep, you've got it me

    I've been feeling so much better with a lot less pain than I was before that I suppose I thought I was fine to do things. Unfortunately, it seems I was wrong, I decided to do do some housework and then some ironing, not a good decision, I was in so much pain last night I had to go to bed. I'm guessing it was standing for a long period of time that did it.

    Today, I am not in so much pain as yesterday, but my knee is definitely feeling tight and painful and I can't bend it properly :( It's swollen so I've been icing it and keeping it mobile and I am using the crutches today, I didn't yesterday. I suppose it's only a week today that I had the op so I can't expect miracles, it's just so darn frustrating I don't know if I should strap it up and I daren't ring the hospital for advice.

    Hopefully, I haven't caused any complications and it will soon be feeling better, but I think I have learned my lesson.

    Wendy, what are you like?
    I`d definitely have a word with the hospital though, just for peace of mind if nothing else.

    Wendy, I agree with Terry, at least give them a ring and ask advice. I don't know the full extent of your surgery and I'm quite sure that mine was probably more severe but I couldn't stand up without crutches for the better part of 6 weeks. Hope you feel better soon.

    Thank you, why I'm saying thank you for being told off though I don't know

    Chris phoned the hospital yesterday afternoon and they said bed rest immediately until the swelling has gone down :(

    Today, I've got the laptop on a computer stand on the bed it's awkward but it seems to be doing the job. I'm banned from using the stairs today and Chris is working from home to make sure I don't need to go down for anything.

    I know I was silly but I honestly felt fine.

    John, I haven't had my knee replaced yet, it was done through keyhole and just cleaned out and loose bits cut away and the knee cap was realigned.
