I have had a good week, I am off the pain relief and the diclofanec, so the only medication I am on is the daily injection to prevent blood clots.
I had physio this morning. It went really well and I managed to lift my leg up, not very high but it left the bed. It was strenuous but still, a great feeling! My physio (Joe) was really pleased with my progress.
My goal is to be able to drive at the end of this, so I asked Joe if I would be able to drive or if the damage would prevent this. He won’t commit, however he has said that the progress I have made is great and we can discuss in the future when my leg is stronger. He didn’t say never though!
Sara, the Sarcoma nurse, called me this afternoon and said that my surgeon doesn’t want me to overdo the bending of the knee. Last week I could only bend my knee 30 degrees whereas now I can do this to a 90 degree angle.
I also received a call from the radiotherapy department at Clatterbridge, I have an appointment to see the radiographer next Friday at Broadgreen, hopefully I will find out what the next stage of my treatment looks like.
