Jo, it great to have you back with us. Too bad it's as a patient isn't of our head lady! It sounds like you've had a rough time of it. Thoses long stems sound so painful. I never thought about them affecting your ankle. I guess the whole body is all connected. Yay for your blood tests being normal!
Glad to hear from you, Jo.
It sounds as if this TKR is going to take its own , sweet time, so try to relax and let it do just that.
We've missed you a lot, but don't let that make you rush back before you feel truly ready,.
So glad that you've report in. Oh yes, the tail of long stems. Been there and recovering from them now. The best advice I could give you - like you need me to tell you anything - is to be very cautious about overdoing it. Once you've overdone, it seems to take awhile to get things back under control.
It all sounds pretty horrendous, but glad to hear you're over the worst now. Take it easy and look after yourself. You've done so much for others, time now for you to take care of you. Wishing you no more complications and a straightforward recovery from now on.
So glad to hear from you, Jo! I know firsthand about those looooooooong stems-and know all too well the pain they can cause. I'm sending best wishes for a great recovery your way, and hope to see you soon. Take as much time as you need-we miss you, but want to see you recovered fully and full of your normal vim and vigor before you return.
Jo, I know nothing about knee implants (and I really hope I never need to), but you do, so I assume there is a good reason for yours to be so long, and once you are recovered it will be a good thing. About that recovery...hop to it. In short baby hops of course, carefully paced out, but moving forward nonetheless. It is so good to see you back here.
Hi Jo! I sign on as advisor and you leave! Was it my breath?
Seriously, though. You've been through a lot and it's so good to hear that you will take the time needed to heal, rest and to get back up to snuff. It's a matter of practicing what you've preached, right?
You are sorely missed.. it was so nice to sign on and see the new post from you.
