I myself cannot remember the first time I try to walk during my early childhood. Mum said the first time I started to walk, I fell down when I played with a basket until my arm dislocated. I was so phobia after that till it takes time for me to start walking again!
Even though I cannot remember anything, but right now it feels like I'm like a baby whose trying to walk. I could feel the feeling of the first time trying to put on the foot on the floor. I'm a bit scared, afraid of the pain. I step down slowly, partially to be exact. It's only 2 weeks after the surgery, but I feel like I've not been walking for years.
Till now, I only step on partially. My left foot entirely feels nothing during the first time I step on the floor. And I fell down! Haha, no wonder babies always fall down when they first start to walk. I feel fresh, young..and realize, actually it is hard to walk. How great that many babies could make it, and you! You also could make it way back when you're a baby.
How wonderful to have back the feeling. The feeling which I cannot even recall back now. But it's great to feel young again :P
It's hard to balance myself, and luckily my right leg do support me much. Very much co-operative :D
Right now I have to challenge the babies. Rapidly doing the physiotherapy, thus I could walk as soon as possible. It's painful, but no pain no gain isn't it?
Past few days I went for my follow up, post-surgery. Open up the surgical sewing, and receive 6 consecutive injections at my left knee at 4 different sides which is too close. It was really different from IV injection. This kind of injections, I have to admit that it were really painful. And the doctor always said like this,
"Ok this one is going to be very painful.." he injects in slowly and repeat, "very painful..a bit more..it's going to be painful.."
That's really good for me to get ready, it's not sort of to psycho the patient to feel painful. (but it really was..terrible!)
And the doctor actually whispered to my mum,
"I'm amazed..all of my patients previously would be crying due to the injections. But could you see her face? So cool and steady! I'm amazed."
And only God knows how painful it was. Hehe. No pain no gain!
p/s: trying to walk with the help of crutches ;)
