Needless to say, I didn’t take the pedometer into hospital with me but here are my steps for the days I wore it:
Thursday 19th: 1101
Friday 20th: 2797
Saturday – Monday, virtually bedridden (see blog)
Tuesday: 24th: 1286
Wednesday 25th: 1893
Thursday 26th: 1780
Friday 27th: 1542
Saturday 28th: 2417
Maybe I overdid it in the early days after coming home or perhaps, as the phlebologue suggested, it is quite normal for it to be more painful several days after the operation.
Anyway, since last weekend I’ve been more or less told to walk round the house and keep my feet up rather than ‘stand about.’
Nevertheless, I attempted a short stroll up the road yesterday as it was such a springlike day and the neighbours were busy gardening.
