The first night after the op I could give myself morphine with this pain killing thing hooked up to me, so I started to use it not much at first then my knee started to come round so I used it a bit more all of a sudden I started to itch and it got worse and worse so much so that it kept me awake all night, I was itching everywhere and It wouldn't stop!!!!!! Later I found out this is a reaction to the morphine, thank God they stopped that and gave me some pills for the pain but the itching didn't stop for three days It almost drove me mad:(
Back to the knee I have taken a picture of the knee, so if your a bit squeamish don't look, its a bit swollen but other then that its very good I have 33 clips in it to be taken out next week.
I can honestly say that its going to be worth all the pain and discomfort to be able to walk free of the arthritic pain, the discomfort I feel now will go.
Oh I've also taken a picture of the fimo beads I made one evening in hospital when I couldn't sleep.
One other thing before I go, thank you to all my friend's who sent me cards, flowers, chocolates, bracelet, scarf and emails of encouragement you know who you are, so many thanks you don't know how much it helped.
Thanks Lesley X
