    I saw the consultant again today to have the rest of my stitches removed and have a follow up appointment. He was pleased with what I told him, but said I mustn't get carried away as it is still healing inside and I won't know how it really is for another 4 to 6 weeks.

    I told him that immediately after the op and the following few days I had less pain, but after overdoing things the pain has got worse, but it's still not as bad as it was before. He wasn't impressed about me overdoing things after just a week and emphasised I have to be careful not to twist the knee or bend it too far back on itself. He said that he expects the op to have made about 40% improvement, any more than that and he will fall off his chair when I see him next

    My cover through the insurance company has finished now, but he said he wants to see me again in about 6 weeks and that there will be no charge for the appointment. I thought that was a really nice thing to do.

    I apologize for not keeping up with it all, but I am glad to hear that things seems to be going in the right direction.

    Glad to hear that it sounds like you are well on your road to recovery Wendy. I guess insurance in the UK must be different than here as ours would continue to cover you until the Drs decided that you were OK.

    John, the company I am with will only cover me for the initial appointments, the op and then 1 follow up appointment. It's not a proper private medical insurance as such, it just allows you to possibly go private if the NHS waiting list is too long and it depends on what treatment you need. I've been very pleased with them and it's well worth the small amount we pay each month for it. I wish I was in a position to pay for proper medical insurance but sadly I'm not

    He did tell me that I wasn't to do any squats, I said I'd be really impressed if I could as I haven't been able to do them for years

    We might actually be able to arrange something now :D

    Great news, Wen

    And I hope the doctor admonished you properly on overdoing it!

    Now then, I'll just leave you with a stern look and a raised eyebrow not to let that happen again.
