Wishing you all a happy and accident free New Year. My tpf was on 18th Sept ( collision with one of my two choc labs) and I had surgery on 22nd Sept. Today I was out walking with my dogs and feeling so thankful that I’m so nearly able to do all I used to do. I still wear my leg brace when I’m out and I use a walking pole BUT I feel I’ve come so far from those early days when I felt I’d lost all my independence. I still have pain and it’s likely I ‘ll need a knee replacement sometime sooner rather than later, but for now I just feel thankful.I really appreciate all who have shared their stories and progress on this site. You’ve given me comfort and encouragement. May 2015 be a good year for you all.
