    THR New year, new hip.

    Hi, thank you for thinking of me and sorry I haven’t posted any updates. 10 days in and everything has been going well, got out of hospital last Sunday and the 2hr drive home wasn’t too bad.

    THR New year, new hip.

    Got my new date today, 31st December, New Year’s Eve. Really pleased that I don’t have to wait too long. Hope my surgeon here in Scotland doesn’t start celebrating New Year too early with some whiskey LOL

    THR Worried, 3 weeks until operation and may have a stomach ulcer.

    Hi, just a quick update. Received all my test results and everything is clear, must be down to using more anti inflammatory tablets recently combined with stress. I have stopped taking the anti inflammatory tablets and been prescribed omeprazole for my stomach. I’m usually easy going and...

    THR Worried, 3 weeks until operation and may have a stomach ulcer.

    Hi Jaycey, thanks for the reply, I think it will be a practice nurse at my local health centre that will do my bloods, I will mention it to them. I’ll also say at my pre-op as it’s with a different healthboard. Hopefully it’s not an ulcer and just nerves about my operation, I don’t think I...

    THR Preparing for RTHR

    Great post Aquainst1, you have described the pain I am having in my knee perfectly. I put a post on here a few days ago about my concerns with my knee pain, got great advice and recommendations from fellow hippies and bought a knee brace like you described and it has eased the pain a lot.

    THR Knee pain

    Thanks for the advice Eman85 and Layla for the encouragement. I’ll be sure to get some comfy trainers for my recovery. Its the simple things that I miss doing, like putting my headphones in and heading out for a walk or jumping on a bike and going for a cycle with my son, but now it’s like bambi...

    THR Knee pain

    Thanks everyone for your replies, i feel a lot better after reading them. I have noticed that my foot wants to turn in a bit as I am walking so I think this could be the cause of my knee pain and hopefully it will straighten out after the surgery.

    THR Knee pain

    Hi everyone, I am due to have my left hip replaced on the 30th of November, been having hip pain for nearly 3 years now and have decided to go private to have the operation.
