    [HIP INFECTION] Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    :wave: Thanks Layla. Had a lovely time, went to the tapas bar, sat under the carob and fig trees and had many laughs. We always do with this couple. A few weeks ago we were at this same place and he (Steve) pulled a crown off eating grilled spicy pork ribs. He put the tooth in his wallet...

    [HIP INFECTION] Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    No Sarah, I have never been one for toenail polish, but have all colours for fingernails, including black glitter! I have always had very long nails and they are a good perfect shape ... and I manicure them almost daily. I cut them back too. At the moment I am in ;no polish' mode. Funny, I...

    [THR] Fit4Family's recovery thread

    :wave: there ... I have been sleeping on my left side for a month or more now. It is not 100% comfortable but I can fall asleep. I use my small beanbag tubular pillow between my knees as I do lying on my right side. I turn very cautiously using my right foot to assist each way, if that...

    [HIP INFECTION] Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    I have done it! After nearly 2-1/2 YEARS I have just cut the toenails on my left foot!!! :egypdance: I have been managing the right foot for months but have had to rely on Hubby (in fear and trepidation) for my left foot. I ache, but did it, very slowly, toe by toe with a rest in between...

    [PARTIAL KR] Ligament Sprain in GoodLeg

    Marie I hope you had a good weekend. We had a shower yesterday but reall desperately need rain ... lots of it. We have been in near-on drought conditions for two years and the reservoirs are pitifully low. I have been doing my gentle exercises but honestly do not think anything will happen...

    sweet Sarah I passed my 7 month op mark on Saturday ... my, doesn't time pass quickly when you are having fun. :whistle: I have been doing the gentle new exercises and at least I don't have any grief following. But, like you, I will be pleased to be shot of assistive appliances. However, I...

    [TKR] Done and dusted

    Sarah I have been reading your progress. We were in different hospitals within in the same group but there appear to be considerable differences. It was always silent between midnight and 6am (when medications end and begin). I got to choose my meals as they came around with a menu daily ...

    :wave:Sara, only just found you. Sorry you are not getting any rest due to your neighbour. I went privately so had a single room. I figured I didn't want unknown folk around me under the circumstances! I too heard and smelled the goings on but such doesn't bother me. I hope you get pain...
