    @Macknit Sounds like you are doing well back at work.... it does, however make me glad I’m retired ... Can understand why you want to build in social time (even if kneesy doesn’t!). Recovery is tedious & boring... Hoping you had a good, calm sunday with limited painxxxxx

    Do hope things improve @Sara61 Sleeping is so difficult... first to get in a comfy position then getting pain under control & then trying to stop the mind whirring!!! I think you are right to keep in with the meds... only just a week & to be sure .. it’s painful!! I could not get off to sleep...

    I think I am off again

    Sorry you are having trouble with your other hip @ Fairydell You have had a tough year & could do with a break... at least have an x-ray and you will know what you are dealing with... once those hips start going it is so painful & restricts mobility so much... do hope you get some relief. love...
