Surgery Thursday morning uneventful. First night in critical care as standard procedure for spinal and intrathecal morphine here. Using cpm twice a day. Standing an taking a few steps with gutter frame. SHower this morning - bliss! Not allowed to elevate but have talked them around to ice for most of the day, they usually only ice here straight after cpm. Probably off to rehab for a littl while until I am a bit more mobile then home where I CAN elevate and ice continuosly. Overall though feeling good for Day 3. Pain controlled well on slow release and Normal Palexia, endone and paracetamol and Celebrex. Happy I can now focus better on my iPad!
