That's a shame when they could be of real benefit. A doctor told me they should only be taken midway through a meal, and not at the beginning or end of a meal. Makes sense to protect the lining of your stomach that way. I am very guilty of not doing that. Sometimes take them with a cup of tea but go heavy on the milk.
So I am now just over 3 weeks since I had my knee replacement. I thought I would have all the time in the world to read and post on here but the last few weeks have been a blur - mostly due to the pain killers. I am now feeling half human again and look forward to catching up in between my physio and exercising. I am hoping to start enjoying my time off work at last !
Ouch, I always wonder about the pain involved in such things. I figure that one gets such an operation because of already having pain, so I try to imagine that the pain goes away after the operation. Clearly this isn't the case. I would think that perhaps if you are not moving, it doesn't hurt but that the physical therapy is a challenge. When does it get better?
Sorry Cheery and all - 2 years overdue in my reply but yes it is now fantastic, no pain almost full range of movement which is quite remarkable given how bent it was before the op. I really wish I had not waited so long before having it replaced; it had stopped me doing so much in the preceding 2/3 years. New lease of life now . The final push for me was when it became impossible to sleep. Sorry Mick I feel your pain - have you had it checked out? Don't be like me and wait too log.
