Wow. 3 weeks later and I barely walk with a limp. Recovery has been amazing and I have to pull myself up when I want to bend over and pick up things on the floor. I still can't put on a sock on my surgical side but everything else has been a breeze. However. I have had to recommence Oxycontin and panadol as the pre-operative muscle spasms have reared their ugly heads big time. I never know when they will hit so now have to be prepared as the pain is worse than the surgery. I don't know how to manage the spasms and have read heat to the area helps -not for me unfortunately. Massage will help - not for me unfortunately. All I can do is medicate to reduce the tears and tough it out. Does anyone have any other solutions I can try?
