Which is actually Clinica Alemana, or the German Hospital here in Santiago, but ever since my first inpatient stay there I have considered it a 5* hotel with operating rooms!
I went into the operating theatre at noon yesterday and was given my discharge papers just before noon today, that’s not bad going!
I’ve had an arthroscopic procedure done on my left hip, which will either save the hip, or buy some extra time before I need a total replacement. I can’t say as I notice any difference yet! 😀 Which is a good thing as that means that the post op pain is no worse than the bad joint pain.
I was up and getting to the loo under my own steam by 18.30 last night (with the auxiliary right by my side though). I’m to use one crutch only, and I can put all my weight on the operated leg.
I can’t quite believe I’m sitting here at home less than 24 hours after getting out of surgery and feeling pretty good.
Now I just have to find good ways to occupy myself for the next 2 weeks when I’m supposed to do nothing resembling any work. I guess my knitting and crochet output will go back up to pre-quilting levels!
I’m sure I’ll be wittering on about the process of recovery over the next few weeks. And my first trip down to the sewing studio will merit a post all its own!
