[Yuko's Leg Rehabilitation Diary - 29]
I felt a great deal of fear. My weight was - simply, I was unbelievably - really unbelievably underweight.
I began to eat. I had to eat. Otherwise I would have been dying.
Of course I needed time. Fortunately I managed to put on weight little by little. I've always had a healthy appetite apart from a couple of days with a high fever.
I was weak. But one day, suddenly I realised one thing: 'Since I became real "skin and bones", I haven't felt a sharp pain of my old muscle dislocation/fragmentation place.'
It was a big surprise. I had no pain there. The sharp pain 'escaped' somewhere. I lost definitely too much weight but at the same time - also lost the old muscles with the sharp pain.
No need to worry about the 'old' pain - it was wonderful.
