Z's back. Or maybe that should be z's hip.

Well, that went very well. No drugged posting i'm afraid because the spinal anaesthetic went so well that I didn't feel any need for any sedation. I was quite happy to be wide awake throughout and, as I didn't need any recovery, I'd Recommend it. Sorry about random capital there, it's a bit awkward.

I'm going to be got up later, I'll report back.

Incredible.
WHat means "to be got up"? They will put you on your feed? Really? I am speechless.
Hope you'll recover well!

Roses said...

Good to see you're awake and feeling okay.

Hope your recovery is speedy and event free.

Rog said...

Blimey, well done! Didn't you hear a lot of worrying sawing and banging?

Z said...

It doesn't take much to make me feel faint, so I don't know if I will be up to walking, but I will stand.

The banging felt like when you are holding a fence post for someone hammering it in. The sawing was less noisy than I expected.
Not worrying, omelette, eggs - had to be done. It honestly was not unpleasant and I could have been sedated any time I asked.

Thanks, Roses.

Good grief! Hope you're feeling OK and that the physios aren't terrorising you too much.

I hope no nurses took pics - heard on R4 at lunchtime that one got suspended for taking photos of operations and posting them on the internet! Although that was presumably without patients' permission...

Z said...

I warned them of the fainting, felt faint but didn't; sadly the nice chicken sandwich I'd eaten is but a memory. However, I stood and walked on the spot a bit and the leg bore my full weight, so I gained full marks.

I, Like The View said...

great! congratulations!

Christopher said...

Goodness, that was quick! Well done - hope you're feeling comfortable.

Roses said...

That's great news honey.

You sound really chirpy and together.

Good stuff.

Completely Alienne said...

Wow, that is amazing. I am glad it wasn't an ordeal and am delighted you are back with us so quickly!

Wendy said...

Good. You are very inspiring Z.

Z said...

I'm fine, thank you. Very comfortable. The Sage popped over to visit which was a good surprise.

I can't stop thinking of Ziggi and what a dreadful time she had. I'm so lucky - so far, of course.

Four Dinners said...

Told you you'd be fine!

I'm from Oldham.

I know these things...;-)

Glad you're ok babe.

Very glad xxx

Ad said...

Brilliant! Keep and think well.

Thanks for taking the time to give an update. The hammering would have made me a bit anxious. So glad all is going well. I'll have a nice glass of sauvignon blanc tonight and toast to you.

Been thinking good thoughts for you, glad to hear it went so well!

Marion said...

I'm so happy that everything went without problems. Maybe your good luck will infect the rest of us.
Best wishes to you.

allotmentqueen said...

So glad it's all gone to plan. I'm starting to think you're a bit of a fraud, getting us all worried and that, when clearly you're more than capable of coping with some piffling little operation. (I jest, well done!)

luckyzmom said...

Holy quacamle'! I am so proud, but not the least bit surprised. I may follow your example with the anaesthetic since hearing how your experience was. Of course with all of us sending you good vibes you had to do well!! Wishing that your speedy recovery continues.

Z said...

I feel a bit of a fraud - I didn't mean to worry you.

luckyzmom said...

Do you have any idea how long before you go home?

badgerdaddy said...

Blimey, this all came around so quickly!

Fingers crossed for a full and fabulous recovery.
