We're glad to hear you had a successful and comfortable visit to the hospital, Stanley. You sent me an email saying you were going in but we'd just got back from holiday and I wasn't quick enough to reply before you left.

I know I'm in my own little world, but it's OK... they know me here. :)

That must be a weight off your mind. Well done.

Now you can get back into the shed, dear boy.
I'm plodding on ok. I'm still not as comfortable as I would like to be, especially at night, but I am off all medication now and have decided to carry on in that manner. Another few days, and hopefully the discomfort will ease. When I think back to how bad the pain was, I have come a long way. I am in sight of the finish line, I think.
Numbness continues on the outside of the foot, the heel and lower calf...and it has been days since I felt any real progress with that. I wasn't given a time line for what to expect in regard to that resolving.
I can walk without a stick most of the time now, though the fear of someone walking in to me accidently and giving me a nasty bump is still high. I use my stick in crowded areas to give me a broader base of stability.
At this point I have many questions for the surgeon at my follow-up appt next month.

Considering you've been through major surgery, Maz, it's wonderful that you are able to get about. Give it time to heal. Best wishes.

China is right Maz. Take it easy!
I am almost up to speed, amazing how little things like operations slow you down! I shall have another lazy day today, doing a lot of sleeping at the moment....Best healer there is.
