Well we are now in week 2 of hi / op had my first physio session yesterday which nearly killed me. I have 8 exercises to do 3x a day each one 10 times I got home and rested and then came to move and couldn't the physio said we are awakening the muscles again it felt like I was in a nightmare I then had a shocking nights sleep and ended up popping painkillers, I did fall asleep eventually and then I did feel better. Although today I have done the exercises I am surprised I feel ok. Bring on tomorrow I say Wx

    Hi Wendy!!!

    Fantastic to hear from you :D

    Sounds as though all has gone well and you are doing everything as you should.

    Poor muscles :shock: Poor Wend :shock:

    I am sure you are taking it easy and wish you a speedy recovery :)

    That's a great attitude, wendro. I do hope things improve asap. But don't start on the housework for some time yet. :) Your body needs the rest time to recover from the exercises. Then more exercises :roll: Worth it though in the end.

    Heya Wendy,

    Don't overdo it either cos your poor muscles are probably in shock. It's great you have physio support as I know so many people that ended up with no real help other than a sheet of badly photocopied exercises.

    I now popping the old painkillers is kinda annoying but there's no need to suffer plus it will put you off the exercises.

    Really pleased its going so well.

    Fols xx
