Well, Its been over a year since I started down the road to get my legs sorted. Two operations later, and I am feeling pretty good. I seem to be able to walk pretty well, managing significantly more than the 10 minutes walk to the shops that I could barely do before. I still get a little bit of pain if I either over stretch myself, or, if I have been particularly lazy, and get out of practice.
Its still a lot better though. I can comfortably manage a good 3-4 km walk in one go, exploring some places I had never previously seen before. My standard working from home day involves about 30-50 minute walk on a lunch time.
Feeling pretty good, losing a bit of weight, and generally feeling like a new man. However, it now feels like I have swapped bad legs for a bad back 🙁
Latest picture on my leg. It’s been about 6-7 weeks since my operation, and my scars are healing very nicely. I have to say, I think it’s worked as I seem to be able to walk quite canny on it. I have even been for a few long walks, 2+ miles, and that is something I would have never even contemplated before.
While recovering from my ordeal, I thought I would try and compare left and right to see if there is an obvious difference between the wounds. My consultant said that it would very possibly be completely different as everyone is different, and each leg is also very different.
Looking at the image though, it doesn’t look too far off though, although the top wound of my right leg certainly looks a bit longer.. Time will tell.
