We are now into the fourth week of being injured. After the fall and collapse of my legs in the shower, from the knees down, a hard thump onto the tiles that resulted from the knees down doing the splits, resulting in a couple of tears in my left Patellar Tendon. Apparently that’s a good thing as a Patellar is near on impossible to break, so no breaks.
I have had extensive treatment over the last 3 weeks, now going on for 4, and this is where Expensive Machines Should have a Dual Purpose. This particular machine below is a suction machine, moves the fluid around and about inside your leg. When advised that the next treatment was going to be administered I had thoughts of being left with suction marks, like the Chinese medicine man does. You know the ones, the suction caps they put on your back that leaves you with red welt circles. Thankfully not.
I did suggest that since this machine re distributes fluid, could it not be put to better use. Like that tyre around my middle, the cellulite around my legs, any other place I find undesirable. Apparently not!!! At least I tried. I even offered to pay extra.

Well it did wonders and I can now bend my knee. I still have to sleep with a pillow between My knees, which I am finally getting used to, as if I don’t I pay for it the next day.
Ian was very concerned that I had lost so much muscle in such a short space of time, great comment, followed up by nothing!!! I need a please explain.
So that left me thinking:
- How long am I going to remain flabby on one side
- Is it obvious
- Will I now waddle and walk lopsided
- Am I that unfit
- I haven’t been able to walk for nearly a month now
- So possibly
There is also another machine that you stand on, it’s a vibrating machine, starts of gently at first then ramps up till everything is vibrating, and I mean everything. It’s my friend for about the first 5 minutes then it’s all down hill from there. You get to learn where all of your loose bits are.

Talking all things medical. There was a conversation on the radio re plastic surgery. Do you know that it costs around $5000 to have an eyelid lift. Count me in!!!!!.
