Hi @JenJuniper ,
So pleased to see your message! Haven't been on the site for absolutely ages but went for my x-ray and check up today and thought I would catch up with everybody's news. Lo and behold - there you were! I am delighted to hear how well you are getting on. It is my one year...
Hi @KLT1200 ,
Thinking of you and hoping that your mum starts to improve. Like others, I have family members who have reacted very badly to morphine and ended up confused and delirious. Hope you can get satisfaction from your meeting with the doctor. I was advised to take in a recent photo...
Hi @Ian C ,
From memory, think Peter Kay operates at Wrightington on Mondays and Thursdays. He is in London a lot doing his NHS England job. When is your appt? If you look at the Professor's website, it tells you when he holds his various clinics.
Hope all goes well,
Wow @Pip3r ! I am 16 wks out and could not contemplate what you propose to do! Really hope it goes well but do not compromise your recovery. You can do that in years to come but just think about yourself for now!!
Hi @Tedsmum ,
Glad to hear your fab report! You are doing really well for 6 wks. I started swimming again at about 8 or 9 wks and took one crutch from the changing room to the poolside, which gave me more confidence as parts of the floor were quite slippery. Found getting in to the pool by...
Hi @BizzyLizzy ,
Very pleased for you that you have had such a great outcome from your op. I very much appreciated all your comments during your recovery. At that point I knew that I would need to have a THR, but was pretty much in denial and was hoping to extend the time before the op. You...
Hi @LancsLass, what do you do for a job? I was intrigued that you could be looking at flowers but also climbing over gates! I am often up in your neck of the woods as I have friends in Eccleston and Garstang. Hope you feel better soon, but it has become apparent to me that our rates of recovery...
Lucky you! I have never been, because we are normally away those weeks, but would love to go. Maybe next year! Yes, I would definitely take a cushion - you need to be comfortable sitting for that length of time. I am off into town to meet a friend for a tapas lunch. Enjoy your walk!
Hi Peter @PS46,
Hope you have a great trip to Wimbledon, and that the sun comes out again for you!
Hi Sam, @sammylou99 , how did you find the Physio you go to? Was she recommended by your hospital? As you say , important to find someone who is experienced with hip replacements,
I was told 6 wks if you feel comfortable enough ( also posterior). I was a real scaredy cat though, and worried about dislocation, so I left it til about 8 or 9 wks! The first few times I could only do about 20 minutes, but the feeling of relief was amazing! Can't you stack soft pillows into a...
