    THR Surgical Site Infection

    Hi there. I am pleased to hear your SO does not have infection. I successfully recovered from having it. I took antibiotic tablets for five months till I tested clear. I would just like to say I think your SO was a bit ambitious doing anything so soon after his operation. He needs to take...

    Hip Infection* Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    folk ... remember me? It has been a while since I visited and it is five years this month that my monumental journey began. Mt hip and knee are doing wonderfully but I continued with the balance issues so decided I needed to see a Neurologist as all else had failed. He seemed to understand my...

    Hip Infection* Sudden pain 2 1/2 years after hip revision

    How good to hear from you ... wish it were under better circumstances. I certainly hope it is not infected. I had two x-rays that did not show the subluxation of my knee and I went for five months undetected and in agony! In the meantime, take care and think of that granddaughter soon to be...

    :hi: Hello John and I am sorry to read of all the issues you have encountered. I remember you from first time around. All of my problems occurred in a short period and the last three ops were within one year. Because of an automobile accident on the way to the pre-ops I had four fractures in...

    MUA knee so stiff<<

    Hello bland9 It is a while since I popped in here and so sorry to hear you are not still suffering.. I am certainly no medical expert but this sounds slightly familiar to me. It COULD be Drop Hip, which I have. This is where the hip on the opposite side of the drop is very weak and the...

    Hip Infection* Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    Having re-read my post, I hope it doesn't sound like I am ungrateful as I came back here for advice. Quite the contrary. I was hoping someone with drop hip, if anyone has experienced such, had any pearls of wisdom to share.

    @Jamie That is very interesting indeed. Technology these days is amazing. However, I am a Technophobe whereas my Hubby is a computer genius ... he was Renault UK's IT Specialist responsible for all their dealerships in the UK and Ireland for 23 yers. I have chosen not to have a mobile. I...

    Hip4life and Elf1, thank you both for popping by. I do know that water aerobics is good but I don't have a swimming pool. The public one is about 20 minutes or so from me (I am in the country) but I am not a fan of public ones (possibly a hangover from school days) and I would hesitate going...

    Thank you Sweet Layla. That list is pretty much mine. :) I am eating small amounts every couple of hours as we eat a small lunch at 12.30pm and dinner about 6.30-7.00pm. I am not a big foodie. :nah: Balance I believe is partly due to Tinnitus but mostly weak muscles. I can work on my quads...
