Update Monday 16th Nov:
Stitches out. Zimmer walker returned. Walking cane thrown away. Cleared to DRIVE. Surgeon’s grading, “Progress excellent”. But still several weeks of physio.
Update Friday 6th Nov:
She’s home! Surgery went well. She will no doubt tell you all about it when she is less drugged up.
Judith Oakley’s knee was replaced successfully this morning in a 3-hour operation at St Joseph’s Hospital, Bellingham.
The surgeon described it as the worst knee he had seen in 14 years but as it was all replaced there should be no further problems.
She is expected to be home at the end of the week.
