I'm finally out of the bandages.
The stitches are also out.
I now have in place of the bandages a rather fetching legging.
Most importantly of all, I am now able to have a shower unimpeded by the giant brace on my leg (which I am allowed to take off at certain times).
I was absolutely gobsmacked by how much my left leg has shrunk when the bandages were taken off. It was as though it had halved in comparison to my right leg.
I've also kicked off my physio and personal exercise regime.
Physio, three times a week.
Exercises, four times a day.
Slowly, slowly, slowly....
