      If you have had a plate surgery it does bloody hurt I had the same thing same time last year, I was given codeine and had to take 2 with 2 paracetamol 4 times a day and I felt like a zombie, so I halved the codeine once I came home 2 days later and felt much better but it was really painful for about 4 days after the surgery, I found the oramorph useless so didn’t take once at home, then I went onto co- codamal after about 5 days as the codeine just doesn’t agree with me at such a high dose.

      I was non weight bearing for 10 days and it took me absolutely ages to be able to walk properly, I had a lot of tendon and soft tissue damage which is what caused the walking problems, I am older than you being 47 but I am no whimp I can tolerate pain I walked about on my broken ankle, only really felt I had done something serious when I felt my bones crunching whilst walking, they had to manipulate mine before the operation as it was so displaced that really bloody hurt.

      How long are you going to be non weight bearing and are you in a cast ?

      I voted remain and every member of my family voted leave. It caused unbelievable tension. But it’s patronising in the extreme to state they did so because they didn’t understand it. Nobody did. I didn’t vote remain because I understood it. I did so because I’m happy with my life and don’t really see the need to rock the boat.

      Huh. That sounds like me. OH noticed my wonky pupils and I’ve always seen stars and had a head rush on getting up quickly. But I’m also hypermobile which seems to come with its own gang of weird symptoms. *shrug*
