Hi Mel, I know the X-ray looks a little intimidating, are having hardware in your operation?
It's frustrating when you are young and your body needs to be repaired!! And it isn't an injury other people can see, so when I ask for a carry out at the grocery store I get funny looks!
I'm so glad your mum is coming to help you, you will need her. My mother drives me insane too, but she came to help me and looked after the kids too, she was amazing. I was so thankful for her help, I don't know what I would have done without her.
My husband was great too, he was so gentle and kind. He actually shaved my legs for me, and gave me a pedicure, because you honestly can't bend for a while.
You will be fine, I think it is good you are preparing yourself. Take care, Sue
