The beginning of another Hospital week

Monday 20th January Orthopaedic team, I explained I’d had a bad weekend especially on the Sunday evening. I had the muscle tightening thing more severely than I’d ever had.

First proper Physio session

At Cadets on Monday evening I managed 4hrs with my prosthetic leg on, probably a new record and probably enough for that day. I didn’t wear it at all on Tuesday, as I was busy sitting at the PC all day. Wednesday afternoon was my first proper Physio session since my surgery, long time coming […]

We were put through our paces

This afternoon when I got to physio I put my leg on while the others in the group started their 10 minute warm up. With my leg on I started with my warm up but was now about 5 minutes behind the others. My warm up was on the bike again but as before kept […]

A great day with mixed emotions

Today has been really good in most ways but a bit weird in others. My parents picked my Nan (94) up this morning as she is staying with us over the Holiday period. I was a bit apprehensive as it is the first time she has seen me as an amputee. It felt a bit […]
