Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a good Easter .Very many thanks for all your replies: it's been a great help & support. After reading the posts again I realise there is a wide range of injuries/repairs & I should heed my consultants & your advice. Perhaps there are different procedures etc here in England?? I'll be trying those exercises Bulldog as soon as I'm able. Wanasail, you are so right : & I've plenty of time to count my blessings! I've much to be thankful for,especially as at 59 it may take a 'little' longer for my recovery! Like Munchkin I'm very grateful for this site & for all your support. It is difficult for friends, relatives etc. to understand the extent of my injury: I'm sure they're expecting me to be running around anytime now....I wish!!! Tomorrow it's forecast to be the sunniest day of the year so far, so hopefully I'll be wandering on my crutches around the garden & enjoying Springtime!
Many thanks again & very Best Wishes to you all.
