A bit of a setback ...

I'm having more pain now than I've had since the surgery.
It's bizarre, really.
My left leg is aching like a bad toothache.
And it's taking everything I've got to manage my exercises.
The painkillers don't seem to be having any beneficial effect.
 I know I have to get through this, and get through it I will.
Just yesterday, my physiotherapist and I were discussing the phenomenon of physical setbacks that surgical patients experience during the third week following their surgery.  She couldn't explain it.  She just knows from years of treating patients that they all seem to go through it.
So I can't say that I wasn't warned.
