    Hi, been lots going on so I haven't signed in for a while- but you have been in my thoughts. My progress continues but at times it does feel frustratingly slow. I have just read through some of my earlier entries and that was reassuring to look back and remember how hard it was to start with...

    THR Marvellous Marvin's New Home

    Hi Carol, So sorry to hear you are feeling down. I don't think I could have coped with your P.T. mine is much kinder, trying to stretch me a little further than I am at, but not too far and also being mindful of where I am not where I should be. I think you are doing the right thing cutting...

    THR Gizmo home again

    Hi Carol, Its funny I hardly even remember the exactly whens now. I only used a walker in hospital. I was on both crutches for walking outside for a good 3 months- ages. I moved onto one crutch eventually as I was really wobbly and unstable with a cane. I am now over 6 months and still use my...

    THR Gizmo home again

    Hi, No weight loss over holidays. However I think having swims everyday and making some healthy choices along the way I managed to come away with only a very small gain. (1lb) Smaller than I was expecting.:dancy: and worth it definitely. This week I need to get back on target with it . I did...

The least painful holiday for years.:yay: But I was a bit sad that I wasn't keeping up and still had to opt out a lot of the time.:cry: I guess stamina takes a while to build back up again and I really need to get my...

    THR I'm New and Hurting!

    Hi Candy, Thanks for the message. Rightly or wrongly when I start hurting I stop exercising for a while- I interpret it as a message from my body. I did have a hard bump on my hip, which is a lot better than it was but even weeks later is still tender and still a bit swollen. I really had to...

    THR I'm New and Hurting!

    Hi Candy, Sounds like good advice to go back to your walker and give those hips a good rest. It isn't easy being patient, but it is really necessary. I had my op in October and even today I was thinking how much further on I was hoping to be by now, giving myself new time limits..... I will be...

    Hi Cardie, It certainly is a long haul this recovery buisness. You sound as if you have had lots of challenges. It was really useful reading through your thread.

    THR Marvellous Marvin's New Home

    Hi Carol, I went to a PT group session earlier in my recovery. It was just really depressing as I was so far behind the others in the group.People that had had their op after me could do things I was no where near doing. It was also really embarassing as I cried and felt really...

    Shocked & Surprised!

    Hi Kathy, I can relate to so much of what you are saying. I deteoriated over a number of years and felt I wasn't being listened to or my pain taken seriously enough. Even when I first had an X-ray years ago no action was taken and the root of the problem missed. I have developed a general...

    Shocked & Surprised!

    Hi Kathy, Welcome to the forum. It is a shock and there is every reason for you to feel as you do. It is a completely understandable reaction. Once you get your head around it all (and this is a great site to help you do that) , I wouldn't be surprised if some of the emotion is pure relief. As...

    Sarah- Miles is so cute- love the picture. You sound as if you are doing wonderfully well with your recovery. I have used swimming to help with pain and stiffness for years - until I was no longer able to even swim, so for me getting back to the water is great. I think we all have our own paths...

    My X-ray scares me

    Elizak, Just wishing you well in your decision making process. It is right that it is your choice as there are no guarantees with this surgery. However pre op I did have an absolute guarantee of one thing - my arthritic pain was just going to get worse, I was not going to miraculously be able to...

    THR New Hip - On My Way Now to a Better Life

    Hi Chef, Just catching up with your thread. Sorry it's not plain sailing. You will have an amazing knowledge of pharmacutical drugs if you ever need to open your own pharmacy!! I am still on a cane for most of the time as my gait is still awkward which seems to be a mix of LLD and really weak...
