[Yuko's Leg Rehabilitation Diary - 6]
In the summer 2013, I couldn't walk very long but for instance about 20 minutes walking - there was no problem.
But when I was walking along Nowy Świat Street in September 2013, suddenly I found the walking difficult. It was only about 10 minutes since I started walking. It was strange. Felt no pain, but the legs were as if they were not mine.
I moved my 'heavy' legs and arrived at Chopin Museum. The driver took me to Żelazowa Wola.
For me it's always a great pleasure to perform at Chopin's birthplace and I was happy after the recital. But after the performance I walked much worse.
I arrived home and thought: 'If my leg condition is worse than today, the concert organisers will have problems with me. I'd better find a very good rehabilitation specialist, a very good "muscle" specialist/doctor soon.'
