Monday morning and my leg still very swollen, stiff and sore. Went to work and joined the Virgin Gym at lunchtime to get exercise programme underway. I hate gyms. Met a personal trainer called Belinda Van De Ven. A kiwi physiotherapist working over here. Has had a lot of experience in post-surgical rehab. Seems a competent girl. Had a go on a stationary bicycle and managed to get the pedals rolling all the way round, which I couldn’t at home. She guided me through this. I think I’ll be able to do the bicycle as long as I don’t put too much pressure on my leg. I’m paying a big price for not icing and raising my leg straight after surgery, although I’m sure I’ve got a DVT. Maybe it’s just because I did too much. Anyway it’s very depressing. Very! Marg Carney picked me up and drove me to work this morning after the Monday Manly swim which I can’t do yet. I didn’t get the carer as the cleaners came today. Trying to juggle all these helpers is hard. Had to drop off a pile of shirts at Spofforth street to be ironed on way to work. I will probably send the other wheel chair back tomorrow. Don’t need it now. I have not taken any blood thinners for a week since I had the brace off and started walking. I hope it was the right thing to do. If I have a DVT it clearly wasn’t.
