I had my op on 21st May i think that was about 17 weeks ago roughly.
well i was ok for days weeks months, but then my dad decorated my room and i was moving things back my mum lifted my 32" TV back in my room but it wasnt where i wanted it and i was stubbon to ask for help like always and pulled my back liftiing it, but i dont think anything has moved i am just aching a little, like when i frist few weeks home from the op, but i havnt taken pain killers for it i would rather it hurt so i dint do anything stupid again.

Anyway i have bad news to go on top of what i have had done, my cat was very very ill i have 3 persians and the biggest male who is 9 was mine and cuddled me everynight after my op, and he had kidne problems a few weeks ago and got worse very very quickly and yesterday was the day i had to say goodbye, it wasnt fair making him suffer it feels awful cause he helped me through my rough time but i couldnt do anything for him...
i stayed with him though and he was purring before they gave him the injection i think he was happy aswell because he was hurting a bit and i dint want him to get to bad i dint want to remember him like that.

R.I.P baby Leo.

I know what its like to be stubborn and do things I shouldn't, then pay for it. I do agree if I stay hurting it helps to remind me (for a little while) to behave.
I'm sorry you had to put Leo down. Its a very hard thing to do, we have had to put down 2 of our dogs. But you do know when its time, it really is better for them.

I'm so sorry about your cat. It's tough to let a pet go, but when they're sick like that, it's far more humane than watching them suffer. And even though you know you did the right thing, I know it doesn't make it one bit easier :(.

As far as pulling something around 17 weeks, join the crowd, sister. I think we've all probably done it. It's around the time you start feeling too good for your own good - LOL.

Most likely you didn't damage anything (you'd be amazed how strong things are by 4 months or so), but just take it easy for now ... and ask for help. (I should take my own advice, but living alone, sometimes things just have to be done!).

My dog has been my cuddle buddy through recovery. I have thought that if I didn't have this furry critter, I would have ADOPTED one to get me through the first few weeks. Animals really can promote healing. Besides, they seem to understand what we are going through. I'm glad Leo could have your companionship during his last few weeks of life.

I'm also happy to hear you are doing well, in spite moving around television sets. Wow. I am still telling the clerks at the grocery store to pack 'em light!

l have had cats that died from illness and it was devastating to me, so i can empathize with you about losing Leo. fortunately you have the other 2 cats to cuddle with (even if they don't want to). i just looked at his picture. what a handsome boy he was. take care of your self.

Angela-- I was sorry to read about your cat also. I know it's very difficult to deal with a sadness like that. It was really good that you were able to spend those last hours with him. And yes, he was a handsome fellow! Sending hugs your way... Susie
