Re: Ted j

Yes, I agree. Generally, whichever bone is broken, you are told that it is six weeks before it is properly healed.

Hubby's broken little finger took six weeks and your bone is so much bigger and important.

How on earth did you manage to do this? Did you have a fall? Far be it from me (glass houses and all that) to comment on how one must be careful when in advanced years, this is a nasty thing to have happened.

Incidentally, there is very little to see of your under crackers in the photo!

All the best.

Re: Ted j

I was crossing a road and while looking out for traffic, failed to spot a rainwater gully.......foot went down it , causing me to trip forward, couldn't get my footing and just smashed down onto my thigh

The medical guy who changes my dressing, said he will take out the staples on Saturday and the surgeon told me it'd be OK to put weight on it after a month (so about the 10th of next month) ... they don't like to leave it too long so the muscles get back to normal quicker

Kath has just got back from Kipa with some cherry juice which I have been told to drink, mixed with lemonade, apparently, this aids reduction of swelling .......anyway it tastes just like cream soda from my youth, so will be drinking lots

Re: Ted j

I was advised to drink cherry juice for osteoarthritis pain. If you google it, there is quite a bit about it. Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and apparently helps if you have sleeping problems.

So - drink for the pain and it will help you sleep. Sounds like a plan to me.

Keep us informed on your progress.

Blooming heck Ted, after everything you have been through, you have to go and do this. Hope you are soon on that road to recovery, and you and Mrs Ted have lots of happy years in Didim. Sue xx

Re: Ted j

Thought I'd do an update, seeing as there is actually bugger all of any use on the internet about the weeks after having a plate put in

Night times are broken up with sporadic twinges of my hip joint which is really annoying ( I am still having to sleep on my back , wheras normally I'd be in the recovery position, on one side with an arm under the pillow), so I use extra pillows on either side to rest my arms on so I'm not completeley flat

Bekir, the guy who changed my dressing and took the staples out told me to lie in bed with my foot elevated for a few hours each day , this actually works at taking the swelling down ....the duff left leg is now only about 1/8th bigger than the other (it was literally twice the size before )
I have been doing as much exercising as possible which means I get more movement in the leg daily (one self made exercise being......sitting on my chair and moving the leg backwards as much as possible and holding it there to the point of the muscle up from the knee aching....then I stop)....this has resulted in me actually being able to get up from a sitting position using both legs, as it has improved the angle I can bend it tremendously

The scar has healed well, what was all bumpy is now smoothing out daily , so we ventured out 2 days ago, got a taxi to the bank, changed some money then walked about 80 yards to pay an electric bill , by which time I was knackered , so we got some lunch and then went over the road to do a shop at Migros . Kath went and found the wheelchair from hell , which must have been crash tested by a 44 stone person resulting in the normally fairly flat seat area having been stretched like a hammock , resulting in after an hour's shopping, my arse cheeks became welded together and I feared I might need even more surgery!

The day after (yesterday) the walking (and wheelchair), had taken it's toll ...I was literally aching all over , but continued to struggle with the crutches and eventually managed with just one crutch to get upstairs and with difficulty, get a well needed shower instead of a bowl and dettol and a wire brush (joking)

Today is the day that I was told I would be able to put weight on the leg, as it will have knitted together and around the plate enough to take my weight , so I set off across the floor this morning armed with just one crutch again (weirdly enough , under my right arm works better than under the left , even though it's the left leg that was broken ).... I tried a few steps using the crutch purely as a steadier , which seemed to work fine , so I tried just holding the crutch (just in case) and actually walked (well limped) back across the room

Armed with my new found confidence, I again set off, no crutches this time and walked albeit very shakily but less "Limpy", so I'm wondering if I have set a new record ....break to walk unaided in 32 days .........The maim motivation is the family coming over in under 2 weeks, so I am aiming to be walking reasonably normally (for short distances anyway)when they are here , probably using a hired wheelchair as backup for long distances or when I get tired .
