Bri feeling peachy after knee op – New life !!!


Hi dear Soapbox Folks

Just thought I’d tell you I am feeling peachy. The keyhole operation already feels like a miracle.

My amazing knee man, Professor Haddad, came in to chat to me after the op. He said that, once he was inside the knee joint, he discovered that I had had a badly ruptured meniscus which was folded over on itself. So no wonder it was giving me constant pain, restricting movement of the ‘hinge’, not responding to any treatment, and filling up with fluid … my body was trying to eject it!

Just the absence of that nagging pain tonight feels like new life. I am so grateful.

So I’ll be out there dancin’! (kidding!)

I’m already walking just fine with no sticks or supports. The bit of bruising I have from the op feels like nothing compared with what I’ve had for the last year or so. Phew. This may even make me less grumpy !

Thanks for all the great messages … you guys are so kind to old Rock Stars !

Onwards !

Can’t believe Contact Music put their own copyright on my picture which they stole off Twitter!!!

We’ll see about that. Very bad behavour, which they will NOT get away with!!



Ah, well, I guess if the op made me less grumpy, it didn’t take away my fighting spirit! ha ha. I will be needing that !
And by the way, the op was today, not Monday.
