Well, according to the surgeon, the replacement went well.

Naturally I wouldn’t know, as there’s no way that I was planning on being awake for it.

You might notice a hand drawn arrow pointing downward toward the knee which I was asked to draw prior to surgery and, no doubt, a good way to ensure that everyone has common agreement about which bits are to go!

The rest of the day was all a bit of a blur with regular monitoring and checking.

Today, the physiotherapist arrived to get the legs moving with some simple exercises ¬†and then, the piece d’resistance: a standing welcome to the new joints with much trepidation and suppressed naughty words. So begins weeks of exercises and physio leading, hopefully, to the proverbial ‘walk in the park.’
