OP update.....

Well a big hello from me to all you fabby friend's out there......im home hooray!!!i had my op at 10 -30 monday morning.......oh my word was i scared....and i soaked a couple of anesthetists with my tears.....but how kind are they...my tumour has now gone i had it drained and i have a few pills to take inhibitors....for the last few fragments and as i had to have my back anesthetised for the drain it was decided i should have my knee removed with a spinal injection..instead of a general....but the sedatin also put me under and i slept all the way through i woke just as they were bandaging...the ruddy needle into my spine was awfully painful..but i got a cuppa tea earlier than if i had a general.....phew i neded a cuppa......and although very sleepy for the rest of monday and tuesday all went ok....untill the dreaded gastapo arrived (physio) arggggggggggggg!!!!waiting till i could once again feel my legs.... (that was a funnny experience)i did of coursse ask how do peeps have babies with this sorta injection but it is different epidural for them mine took out all feeelings from the waist down...that felt ever so strange..but 4 hrs later at least i wasnt in pain till it wore off then by heck it reallly was sore and no way could i even liift my leg....but them physio well **COME ON..YOU Can Do it **NO I screamed** oh yes you can....felt like apantomime lol....so once id managed to slide my leg i was up on my frame.....feltvery much like a kiddie taking her first steps.....and of course i set of on the wrong foot....but after what seemed like 27 trips around my bed...was 2 actually hahha.....i managed to hobble.....but a very proud hobble......so after another three sessions with the gastapo.....i was progresing....of course it hurt loads but i was chuffed iwas upbut it didnt stop there back on the bed with other exercises bit like a imbering up session.i did also ask them if either had had a knee replaement cause it ant easy to bend aknee swollen to three times its nomal size and 32 staples down the middle ..well that i didnt go so well at and pray tell why do physios shout louder than other staff i politley told her i hadnt had major surgery on my ears .. im just just a cripple and i could hear what she was saying without her shouting..erm she didnt like that so im off her christmas card list......so the next day well pleased it seemd the hobble felt a better hobble especially better as know id progressed to sticks...and although i shouldnt have emulated them as guns when the phsios walked in..even with the vocals of world war two gun replicas.....or a darleck pointing at them etxerminate hahhahah ooops i think i did it again....anyways x rays on wednesday were good and leg is much straigter.....and after my protest march to say iwas strong enough to go home even to the point of saying i could climb the hmymalayas i finally got home at 5-00...........think they were glad to get rid....so now have the **SWATT TEAM*** for the next few days to carryon the sessions and im sure ill do better.....oh and answers on a post card if you know waht the SWATT team means..lol as.i stilll dont know

Oh dear you made me smile - I'll bet that dalek impersonation didn't go too well lol....
Hope you are soon on the mend and up and about. SWATT Team - well, I hope for your sake it means something like 'Silent With A Tender Touch' Team biut somehow I doubt it.....(and I shouldn't try the himalayas just yet if I was you)

Glad you're home Sassy and that it all went well - it all sounds like quite an experience!
It's obvious isn't it - after the impression you made on them all SWATT - 'Sassy With Attitute Tantrums Team' - well, they've got to make sure you keep away from that 'nice' phsyio!
Seriously though, hope your pain is eased now and take care and rest!
