Thanks JK apologies for late response have had a busy deflating weekend. Your advice is great thanks. I am going to see myGP tomorrow re meds but wont hold my breath. It's unbearable lifting and I'm not generally weak and fight pain but this leg raise instability climbing stairs is mad. How can you keep doing exercises that hurt and cause pain and swelling to ice again and do it all over and over and still get nowhere/ Others say "bonesmart" dont do anything it will all come in time?? Wish I'd never had it done.

@caz7 I know the feeling of wishing you hadn't had something done, but I hope you will finally, at some point, breathe a sigh of relief and be glad that you did. You really did push yourself with the shopping, etc. I pushed myself too far a couple of times but I don't think as much as you did. Try to pace yourself better.
I really never had much pain with my PT so I can't advise you there.
Being able to go up and down the stairs is a great accomplishment and you will get there. Then the next thing is doing it without having to grasp the handrail. I finally got to that point. Hallelujah! Now I can carry the laundry basket up and down by myself. I used to have to put it one stair ahead of me when I went up, or back down and bring it down one step at a time.
