Just A Quickie...

Ok.... well, I survived, but not without a few complications....now, it wouldnt be normal if things in life concerning me actually went according to plan LOL



First off, I wanna fank everyone for all the lovely comments in the previous post, I was gobsmackingly overwhelmed by everyones kindness, I truely do not deserve it...but it warmed the cockles of me heart....and when Im up to it, I will reply to each and every one...

I will keep this short with just a quick explanation.....cos Im not up for much and this will knacker me just doing this short post....

As you know I went into hospital on Monday 1 June, but cos this is me LOL I didnt get the op until Wednesday 3 June around T-time.... (long story, will explain if I blob)...

This time I decided no sedation at all, fully awake... and yes I took me camera again so I have many great photos (and the theatre staff was arguing who was going to take the photos and the surgeons even posed in some like broadway stars lol.... as I explained before I already had a couple of large screws in me knee from a previous acl/pcl reconstruction when I snapped me ligiments playing football a few years back, and these screws had to come out before they could do the total knee replacement....... well, me surgeon (who was NOT MY surgeon - long story will explain if I blob lol) talked to me about the possibility that when they dig out the screws the bone to the left of the femur will obviously be very weak, and there is a possibility that it could sheer off when they cut out the knee joint and hammer and chisel in the new knee joint and if that was to be the case then, things would not be good, but he said I needed to know the risks.....

Well during the op I being fully awake and directing camera action and joking and laffing with everyone, I heard MrClark (yes top orthopedic surgeons are called Mr and NOT Dr here when they reach a certain rank) say... 'oh shit'...... so I say whats that suppose to mean, to which he says, you know I explained about the sheering off of that 3rd of the bone in ya femur....... well, he says, it didnt happen..... phew I said, BUT he said.... Ive broken it in stead.......dam, I say, but it could of been worse right?.... yep says he.... well, lets say Ive had a 'lucky break' then...... to which he stops what he is doing and walks around my side of the sheet screen, looks at me and just laffs and laffs........ ya see, even though its a bit dire, it could of been oh so much worse.....



This is my Xray before the op.... you can see the leg on the right (which is actually me left leg) and last years knee replacement...... and the leg on the left (which is actually me right leg) with the screws that needed to come out before they could rip out all the guts and saw the bones and chisel and put in a new knee...... well, see the screws and the big squarish bit of bone to the left of the screws in the thigh bone, thats the bit he thought might sheer off, where in fact it didnt but it broke right across..........

So you see, I know in America you would SUE HIS ARSE..... but I was explained the risks, and to be honest, as shit as this is, as painful as this is, and believe me being home and not being in a hospital bed is bloody painful and scrary, and as hard as physio once again will be...... it didnt sheer off, it only broke LOL so Im wellabit happy...... and this years op went nuffin like last years, no laying poorly in bed for 4 days post-op, I actually watched 'The Apprentice' on the telly right after coming back from theatre and had a cheese and pickle sandwich (ok, so I did throw that up but still :) ) it was as if I had just popped out for a coffee and a chat and not major surgery, of course the very high dozes of morphine for 3 days helped LMFAO....

Anyways, this has so gotta just be a quickie.......

So I had it done just over a week ago and then back to theatre on Saturday night for a bit of tweaking and cos me stats had gone haywire..... BUT..... only 4 days after me main op (on Sunday evening) I had to discharge meself cos of a few problems here at home......

So Ive been home a few days, with a total knee replacement and a broken femur which they cant put in traction or plaster cast cos I HAVE to keep the bend in the new knee working.....

So its a tad difficult here, Im suppose to be in bed much of the time and IF when on crutches for the few moments, no weight bearing..... its a little scary though being home, without any backup as such...... but I had no choice..... its hard to try and do the exercises cos I dont know if the pain is muscle, bone or the broken femur that sends me head spinning.... Im not suppose to be even out for at least another 7-10 days.

As regards staying in bed and only getting out for the odd 5 minutes.... yeah, like thats even gonna happen..... tiz only me and my Jacob here and I have to get up to see him off to school for the rest of his exams.... and then there is things that need doing around here....

I might have to go back in and have a couple of screws put in the break, but we will see, they would rather me be in there now for another week at least, but that aint happening not now, I had to come out due to circumstances beyond my control..... see, this is me, we are talking about, life never goes according to plan, I cant have major surgery and recoup like everyone else, cos life wouldnt be my life without major cockups in it.....

I'll explain more later..... but now, Im totally knackered, I got up to let the chickens out, how I hobbled down the garden to do it is even beyond me.... and now Im totally drained........

But, Im chipper and sorta happy in a painful, frustrated, bored, scared, lonely way... its hard to be poorly when ya have no one to really care....or help.... but, the British stiff upper lip and all that bollocks........ it is what it is and there aint nowt I can do about it......

But I will say, in hospital I laffed and laffed dont know if it was the drugs or the fact that I couldnt believe this op (so far) has been so completely different to how poorly I was last year...... I know, I know, early days, its only just over a week since I had it done, and Im home alone and not quite knowing what Im suppose to be doing......... (where are ya Chupa when I need ya lol)

So, Im not to good but then I aint to bad....but what do I know LOL

I do have some very funny stories.... so all was not bad right?.....

But I do so wish I was back in hospital, being looked after and fed and cared for and being able to recoup a little before life hits me smack in the face LOL.... well, that would just dam right being spoilt right lmfao

Know you are loved....

Crikey, that was a quickie blogpost?! When you write a long one (a "slowie"?) let me know and I'll prepare sandwiches and make a day of it.

Anyway, glad to hear you're in good spirits despite all the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune (Ooo, a bit of Shakespeare there) that have been hurled your way.

Bon courage and get better soonest!

soul pumpkin said...

i concur with Dumdad...if that be a quickie, you must type extremely fast...and whilst wacky on pain meds no less...you never cease to amaze me...

Wil said...

Well it's good to know you were erect!

Not Waving but Drowning said...

Thrilled you're home.

A forlorn hope I'm sure, but put yourself first for a wee while now.

Give yourself a chance to heal and eat loads of calcium foods,

GG

softinthehead said...

Mel - take it easy, put your feet up and get the boys to let the chickens out!! Keeping my fingers crossed for a speedy recovery :) Those guys are obviously new to your blog, you were very brief lol

Deanna said...

Super huge hugs Mel. You are one strong, hard headed lady. I'm glad things went so much better this time but... I wish you had stayed been able to stay in the hospital a bit longer to be cared for.

I'll wait for a non-quickie post. Give me a warning so I have a pot of coffee ready!

Lulda Casadaga said...

Marmie, dear one...rest & recoup please take care of yourself! I'm sending healing thoughts your way luv...get your kids to step up to the plate. Call in the troops to help out..any bloggers live close by that can lend a hand? Damn it, I have to get my passport renewed...I would be there to help if I could! NOW GO PUT YOUR LEG UP...(the non-sexual leg up, that is..LOL

Jen said...

So glad to hear from you. I thought of you yesterday when I was walking the Mudgy and Millie trail with my sister friends. Wishing you could be with us. I'm still praying for you too, for healing inside and out.

Intense Guy said...

Hey! I just got back from the post office where I was sending (forwarding) you some more cards from some fellow bloggers!

I'm so glad to see something from you - me and a lot of others were getting concerned.

Like Deanna, I'll being waiting for a non-quickie blob. I'll have a pot of coffee, three dozen sandwiches, a huge bag of chips (err... crisps!), and half an apple orchard worth of fruit to see me through it. :)

{{{{{{ Toastie }}}}}}}

Bina said...

MEL! I can't believe you are doing ANYTHING, let alone hobbling around to let the chickens out. Can't Jacob do that before he goes off to school? How old is Jacob anyway? You have NO ONE to help you, at all?

My God how I wish I lived close enough to help you. I'm so angry that you don't have anyone.

I hope you heal well and quickly. PLEASE take care of YOU!

Can you send me your address to bina64@gmail.com

Silver Valley Girl said...

So glad you are okay. I've heard about our progress off and on and kept praying things were okay. Thanks for posting, and I loved the part about the surgeon laughing at your "break" comment. You are loved, MT, and just keep remembering this throughout your recuperation. Look forward to hearing more stories, and pictures!!
P.S. Perhaps we could all pitch in and hire a handsome male nurse to come take care of you and your house 24 hours a day...LOL!!!

ChrisB said...

You don't know the meaning of a 'quickie' and that's why we love you. Anyone who can go through all that with a smile on their face(even if it was the morphine-some people will go to any lengths to get a high LOL) deserves masses of support, I so wish I lived near you-I'd be around like a shot. Take care not to do too much (probably wasting my breath as I'd be just like you) (((hugs)))

JeanieSpokane said...

Dear Marmie! I am glad you are home - really. I think you will heal faster and better now - instead of laying back in your hospital bed with nurses and orderlies pampering you and making you lazy and spoiled, eating bon bons and flirting with doctors. Pretty soon you wouldn't WANT to get better and you'd have to move your chickens in the room with you and your computer and your cook books. Then the hospital would have to build a wing just for you. And you STILL be laying in bed, plump and pampered. :)

Tori_z said...

Glad to see a post from you. Been worrying about you! Hang in there, and try not to over-do it. *Hugs*

And, by the way, even ops that are exactly the same can go differently. When I had my first eye out the op went smoothly, but I was so ill after it I was in hospital for close to two weeks. But the second time the op itself didn't go to plan, but I was up and about and eating (and keeping it down) within an hour of the op, and home the following day (OK, so I had to go back in three times, but - other than exhaustion and expected pain - I didn't suffer from having the op). And yet they did the exact same thing.

Anyway, hope you're feeling better soon. *Hugs*

LadyStyx said...

Just gonna leave ya a nice big *HUGZ* and get well wishes. You take care of you, we'll be here when you're finally up to being back.

Charles Gramlich said...

I feel both happy and bad for you. Sorry about the break, but glad you are home. Hopefully you'll get your strength back soon.

Sorrow said...

If thats a quickie, I would love to see what your idea of a longie is!
BOL
I have been thinking about you, and wondering..
and have had the prayers and the candles going.
Lordy women you have the best sense of humor!
((((HUGS)))
Now stop hobbling to the chickens and tell the damn boy to do it!!!
(((LOVE))))

Frum Helen Back said...

Sorry you didn't get to remain in the hospital and be spoiled but I'm just so glad you have both legs and you're breathing! Hang in there girlfriend. If anyone can do this alone, it's YOU.

Eastendmom said...

Welcome home, Mel! You're so sweet to let us all know that you're alive & kickin - well, alive & hobbling anyway. Try not to push yourself too hard or it will just be that much longer to recover. Can ya feel all the love from cyberspace? lol Looking forward to hearing more details when you're able.

It's Just Me said...

Mel - I would bet probably a MILLION bucks that you don't let on to your boys exactly what you do to us here - and if they knew they'd be all over you, which is why you don't let on. That is always the motherly way isn't it? But do know that if all of us were there we'd 'pop in' and take over and fix everything. I hope you know that you are thought of and that I wish you a SPEEDY recovery!

AliceKay said...

I hope you have a speedy recovery, too. Take some down time and try to let things heal a bit...you certainly need it. *hugs*

PinkAcorn said...

Hey, Bionic Woman! Glad you got it all fixed, but you'd better take it easy. Easier said than done, I know. I'm still recouping from my ATV accident and off work til July 9th! I'm thinkin about ya!

Betty said...

Glad the surgery went better this time. And, I wish you could have stayed in the hospital a bit longer, but, we do what we have to do.

basicliving@backtobasicliving.com said...

It's so great to hear from you. I'm sorry you have to go through this recovery on your own. Stay strong and take care of yourself. You are so very loved - as evidenced by the many, many comments you get on your blogs and all the well wishers.

Jackie said...

Love you, Mel....I'll be back...I promise!

Winifred said...

Good grief, you're right nothing is ever straightforward. You must have been at the back of the queue when the luck was handed out.

YOu sound like the bionic woman now with all those metal bits in your legs. I was reading your post with my teeth gritted. What a warped sense of humour some of those medics have!

Take care daft thing to say really but I'm thinking about you.
x

JBelle said...

heeeeey! YOU ARE LOVED! What a gal. Keep truckin', Mel. I am proud of you.

Maggie May said...

So pleased you are back. Pity you are not getting looked after and able to relax more but life is not always what we want, as you pointed out. At least you know you are improving by the day now.
Keep doing the exercises as it will speed up recovery even though it hurts.

Take care. ((hugs))

Cindy said...

Oh, I'm so glad you're back and doing okay, considering! I was starting to wonder what they had done to you. Stupid me got a card for you yesterday and then left it at WalMart on the checkout counter. I'll have to pick it up Monday when I'm back over there and get it mailed off to you.
Try to take it easy- I know, I know, that's a whole lot easier said then done, but TRY.

Karla said...

Glad your feeling somewhat better and home. Take care of yourself..We don't want you going back in anytime soon...

Flowerpot said...

Keep up the good spirits Marmie - you are a true inspiration to us all. Big hugs FPxx

Akelamalu said...

We 'talked' already. You know I'm thinking of you and sending you Reiki. Take care Marmie, don't go playing any football! LOL

Pamela said...

I wish you were in the hospital being cared for , too!

DON'T DO ANYTHING TO HURT YOURSELF!!!!

Tori_z said...

*Stops by to give you a big hug*

Hope you're doing OK.

Jackie said...

Thinking about you...

Intense Guy said...

Pops in to give you a huge hug!

:)

jolie-jordan said...

So glad your spirits are up even though you are down. A world of difference it'll make.

Take it slow. Jacob is a big boy now and he can let the chickens in and out and get himself off to school and nurse you to health. You'd do it for him.

Love you girl and I'm still sending out powerful healing vibes.

Jolie

Elizabeth said...

Glad you were able to give us all a "quick" message...been awfully worried about you! I don't know what hospitals are like in Jolly Old, but here they're not exactly places to rest and recuperate. You'd be better off at home for sure.
If Janet had opposable thumbs and a slightly bigger brain, I'm sure she'd be helping you out around there.
Glad my Melvin Pig was able to give you a smile!

Kati said...

Oh Toasty!!! You are one incredibly brave lady!!! I hope this knee heals much more quickly than the other, and you're in my thoughts & prayers regularly till it does! Be safe and be WELL!

Rebecca said...

So pleased to see you back.
Try to rest. Can't Jacob let the chickens into the house to sit with you. I recuperated from my hernia operation on the settee for two weeks with my bantam sat next to me. I know teenage boys don't understand whats to be done but you could try asking them. Love and hugs to you. xxx

buffalodick said...

Glad it went better, but I wish you could heal up for a bit without worries.. I would have written earier, but I was in the hospital for 5 days myself!

LadyStyx said...

*drops in to add a few more {{HUGZ}} to the ever growing number of them*

inlandempiregirl said...

You have been in my thoughts often. Keep up the good spirits and I hope the pain isn't too bad. Go out and enjoy the red geraniums, your chickens, and some sunshine.

Lisa said...

Just back from visiting my girls. Glad to see that you are up to Twaddling again! You know I am eating yummy food in your honor and thinking really good thoughts for you.

Drop a note if you feel like whining or anything!

Deanna said...

Just popping in for a quick hug and sending you more good thoughts. Hope you are healing in every way possible.

Sorrow said...

Tell me you are feeling better.
Tell me you are resting
tell me the lads are being good boys and helping out.
Tell me that you are okay..
come on now.. Need to know you are okay!!!
((((((((((M~toasty)))))))))))))

Eastendmom said...

How ya feeling Mel? I'm wondering if it's hard for you to get to your PC to post your twaddle - do you have a laptop? I can see where it would be hard to sit at a desk in front of a PC .... just a note to let you know I'm thinking of you here in rainy NJ, where summer seems to be permanently delayed.

Robin said...

Mel,

I know you're feeling lonely.

I wish I could help.

When you're up to some fluff, visit me again. You've been tapped on the shoulder.

Know that Jolie and I are keeping you as close as we can....

~R

jolie-jordan said...

Hey Baby,
Just checking in to see if you are still kicking...ahha bad way to put it, eh? Not kicking with those legs I'll wager. Sometimes at 5 am I think I'm soooooo funny. But really...I do hope you have given up the idea of dancing in a chorous line.

Can you harmonize? We could start up a singing group or something to try to keep you out of trouble.

Did the oldest ever get going on his trip? And Jacob...is he done with school now? I wonder what is going o in England this morning?

My news...the old boy has been called back to work starting Monday so we probably won't need to hit the road and be vagabonds yet. Hopefully it isn't going to be one of those two days here and there or we'll need to travel for work. One can not survive on love alone. Not at this age anyhow. (LOL) A couple of brother-in-laws are on the road. One in Montana and one in Oklahoma. My sister-in-laws are not happy. They have kids in school so they cannot travel with the men.

Ahh somehow people learn to get by.

Anyhow, I think of you everyday...mostly good thoughts. Ah shit you know I always have good thoughts and wishes for you. I'd better stop my attempts at humor and go back to bed before I write anymore stupid jibber.

Love you girl. Chin up and all that rot. Sending kisses for your boo-boo. Jolie

Queenie Jeannie said...

Hi!

Just popping in to add my well wishes and hugs to the pile, lol!! I'm so glad you have such a great attitude and such sass!!!!!

Enjoy your tea and, say it with me, RELAX!!!!!!

Hugs!

Frum Helen Back said...

I'm getting worried about not hearing from you. Please let us know you are still breathing.

goatman said...

Funny --- your comment about we in US being able to sue if things don't go right medically. Its the reason our health care costs are high and many have no insurance. The Dr's have to order any test or procedure which may or may not apply to your problem, in the off chance that not ordering it ,and patient having a problem because of that condition, would be brought up in court.
Not to mention .... but I must stop and do a blob myself on this to relate my recent runin with the medical community (pinched nerve in my spine). Not to bore with details.

So, you must take it easy as I am and let the healing progress without excessive activity.

Be well, you have many friends.

UKBob said...

Thanks for your comment, it made me smile. I'm saving my favourite hoe till last though!

Bay Views said...

If you are out of the hospital against doctor's orders, it sounds as if permanent damage could occur. Can't you get someone to come in to deal with your household chores?/family?

Cedar Street Kid said...

Good to see you up. Just so they don't have to put screws in your brain, too. Take care

Queenie Jeannie said...

What's for tea???

I hope you are taking it easy and getting some rest!

MarmiteToasty said...

PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR NOT GETTING BACK TO ANY COMMENTS - THINGS HERE HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT... HAVING NOT JUST ANOTHER KNEE REPLACEMENT BUT A BROKEN FEMUR TO BOOT MAKES LIFE VERY DODGY... IN ALL ASPECTS OF MY DAY AND NIGHT.. WHERE MOST WOULD BE IN TRACTION OR A FULL LEG CAST COS OF THE BREAK, ITS IMPOSSIBLE COS OF ME OTHER SURGERY, SO I HAVE TO BE SO VERY CAREFUL AND IM VERY DRUGGED UP COS OF THE PAIN lol WOOO HOOOO..

HAD THE 46 STITCHES OUT... both the district nurse and Nick me physio said it was the longest knee replacement would they had seen.... Nick had me in tears... but the hug was nice.... I trust this bloke with my life... that is why he took me off the list and put me as one of his patients... we go back a long way, and he knows I had drawn the short straw last major op... and he is now head of the department so now Im in the best hands....

I sure am sorry things aren't better.. Isn't there someone who could bring you a bag of groceries or something? You are not going to heal eating toast and tea... I hope something good happens for you- and soon!

MarmiteToasty said...

Deanna said...

Just popping in to give and grab another hug. Hope you are a bit better day by day.

Tori_z said...

Hope all my texts made you feel less alone when you were in hospital. *Hugs*

Just don't over-do it, and maybe this time you will actually heal quickly.

And remember, I'm just a text phone call, or e-mail away if you need someone to talk to. *Hugs*

Tori_z said...

*sneaks in and adds a comma after the word "text" so it says "text, phone call, or e-mail" instead of text phone call, or e-mail."* ;)

Casdok said...

Really pleased to hear it went better this time than last and your sense of humour and stiff upper lip are intact!
Hope you mend quickly x

Sorrow said...
