I’m now beginning to worry about how fragile my arm is, worrying about whether or not my shoulder is being held in the correct position and whether or not the smallest movement may cause another tear in the tendon which was recently repaired. I’m even waking in the morning worrying that I may have had my arm in the wrong position while sleeping – even though I am sleeping with it in the sling every night. If that wasn’t bad enough I’ve managed to bump that arm quite hard this morning and now that it’s really sore I’m worrying more!

I really must get a grip – I’m not seeing the consultant for another week and if I’m not careful I’ll drive myself mad. I’m trying to convince myself it was only a bump but the slightest flick of a duvet cover was enough to warrant major surgery last week đŸ˜«
