A quick post-op pic

Yo!

Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers. And thanks doc for the choice of anaesthetic consultation. The surgery was successful and I am on the road to recovery. I have to testify, doing post-op physio is the most painful experience ever. A mother of 5 told me it was more painful than giving birth.

I am a bit tied up with a lot of things at the moment. I will certainly blog more about it. For the time being, allow me to share with you how it looks like when the surgeon drilled into my knee to implant the new ligament…

Dearest Zewt,
Get ample rest and therapy. Physio is extremely important so we could you back on SCM next year and back in the badmintion court soonest possible.

Take care and May God bless you, as always.

p.s.s. Your doc is so cool - i enjoy reading his blog (wuhuu)

MKL said...

That was pretty graphic. Good luck, bro. Hope everything goes well.

Glad to hear you have the surgery behind you and hoe you heal quickly.

(Although it seems like for any pain, you can always find some mother who says it is more painful than childbirth. I'm skeptical.)

Hope you have a speedy recovery. Once your knee mends, you can join me climb Mount Kinabalu.

zewt said...

Ted - yup... hopefully the road to recovery will be a painless one.

Joanne - trust me... there are more gory ones... :P

day-dreamer - they are drlling into my knee to make way for the new ligament :P

Niel - better stay healthy!

doc - tell me about it. but doc gan said it should be fine by now.

JoMel - walking is a luxury... :)...

zewt said...

mh - me too :)

Fi-sha - yeah... the doc can only operate, recovery is purely based in physio and that's purely my effort. oh, that doc blog is not my blog, he is just a blog reader whom i made contact and has been a good friend.

MKL - getting better... hopefully will be much better soon.

secret agent woman - hahaha... well, i think it was the spur of the moment. i believe labour is the most painful experience. hats off to women.

Monyet King - hmmm... doc advised against that though.

missironic - that pic is pretty normal mah... ok what :P
