No pain no gain


Hi all

Well i still haven't got a new date for my surgery yet, and we are half way into May. So i called the hospital and told them to book me in in July. When i get back from my TRIP TO DISNEYLAND!!!!! Ahem...excuse me.
I know from previous operations it takes up to two months to fully heal then another month to get back to walking normal. And i dont want to be changing dressings or in pain on Holiday.
So currently the Amatryptaline has kicked in and its reduced the pain to where if i pad out the bottom of my stump it doesn't hurt. I still cant walk far but i can do a bit of gardening and pick poo yay. The only downside of Amatryptaline is its a great nerve suppressant but it also affects your mood. Messing with you seratoning levels. Its a drug also prescribed to people with depression. It messes with my happy hormone so one day im really happy and the next day i could wake up and be so low and only have black thoughts and cry. The sooner i get this operation done i can get back off these things.
Also since new year i have been eating healthy, no booze, no sugar and low carbs and calorie counting. I still have a bun on my birthday and meals out but i take those calories into consideration. As of April i had lost half stone and as its not done through fad dieting just healthy eating it should stay off. I also do a 20min exercise routine without my leg on. Im gonna keep this up until the end of the year to see what my body settles at. Attached is a pick of me with my new electric leg. i have, for the first time in two years a size 10 top and bottoms on. Keep on plodding on folks. X
