I had the same Magsmom. They'd keep asking as if they didn't know or the black mark wasn't there.
Hubby said it was exactly the same with his eye operation.
He panicked and thought they didn't know what they were doing!

Funny…but not funny. Poor hubs!
Hopefully your foot is feeling better and you have a good week. :)

My knee op was in NY at HSS - was it the same place?
@spongemum how are you feeling now after sleeping on the hip?

I havn't slept on operated hip. Just able to lie on that side for short periods like for a nice cuddle with OH!

In many respects almost forgotten I've had the op. Friends and family say I look taller! Recovery seems quicker than first hip. Managed to have a bath no trouble over 2 weeks ago.
Only gripe is a funny muscle twang behind left knee and brief loss of strength. Got it pushing shopping trolley the other day. It's painful but seems to just go away.
Had to build up fitness after doing stuff slowly for so long. Can get up stairs now without breathlessness and panting for example!
Feel lucky lucky lucky to be in this position again.
My happiest moment was visiting my son recently and holding my Grandson who's a toddler now. I couldn't even hold his weight as a small baby unless someone out him on my lap before the op.
You read a lot of folks struggles on this site and acknowledge the despair many can feel.
It does show how social media can have a good and positive side as well as bad!
I'm sure a problem shared is a problem halved can still stand the test of time especially when we can identify with others.
