    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    Does Ali help with your knees @Apricot? My aches and pains (and weaknesses) do seem to be moving down my body. I'm so scared of my knees deteriorating. I appreciate my new hips (mostly) but can't face any more surgery. Someone (@Barbaraj ?) commented on our not bouncing back and getting back to...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    I love Earl Grey! But I like it with milk rather than lemon. I drink it in preference to anything. An occasional cappuccino when I'm out and about but otherwise always decaff. No rain today despite the forecast so I've been able to get out with husband (in between the horrid rugby!) to dear...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    Hi @Apricot did you go and see Ali? Guessing she likes you though for your recommendation?! It seemed a strange week for me however. 2 full babysitting days but more tiring than usual and I found I hadn't my usual patience and imagination for creative play but I got lots of unsolicited cuddles...

    [THR] Hopefully Hippy Recovery

    :censored:Wonder why it's changed S.o.d's law to blow's law?

    [THR] Hopefully Hippy Recovery

    It may have been me who recommended the Aveeno @SurreyGirl as I used to recommend it to all and everyone, including the nurse who admitted me last time! He was complaining of sore irritated hands. The kids used to mock me for my obsession. But blow's law being what it is I seem to have become...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    Nice to hear from you @Barbaraj glad you're out and about. It does us all good. I know the feeling - much too soon for you to be concentrating and standing for a long period especially at only 3 months. Glad you had the sense to sit down! It does us no favours to put on a brave face when we...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    I've no wish to be an athlete @Apricot nor ever did! What a strange thing to say to lovely ladies of a certain age! Or did you express a desire for mountain biking or showjumping? I've seen Beyond The Barricade several times @Hoppy Nanny it was always a pre Christmas treat with my sister and...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    Thank you @Fit4Family ! What a lovely thing to say. But it's my therapy, and only possible on good old Bonesmart. Where else could I witter on and offload my feelings and anxieties? There's no one else I can talk to without being needy or boring. I am fortunate in that things seem to be...

    Always! But watch your balance especially if you're manoeuvring a walking stick too!

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    @SurreyGirl that must have cheered up the postman! (or Amazon delivery man? Realised the other day my granddaughter has never seen a postman) I get too bored doing minutes. With steps I can go faster and make it more exciting. I listen to Classic FM to do the ball rolling against the wall...

    [THR] Fit4Family's recovery thread

    @Fit4Family oh no! I must say my groin is possibly the only part of my body that hasn't hurt. Aspirin are anti inflammatory and I used to prefer them before the ops for arthritic pain. Could you take more of them?

    Forget to add - no painkillers this week so far...:) :-) (:

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    I only tell the truth @Layla ! I can't help it if my life is comical! :rotfl: Our bath is very lovely as the cleaner scrubs it every fortnight even though no one uses it! How I long to! Poor Stephanie. They're in rented accommodation which is old and tiny but has only a shower. And sometimes a...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    What a strange week it has been! Mainly due to the weather which has been mostly driving rain interspersed with odd bits of warm sunshine, just sufficient to lure you out before the next deluge! Have been determined to do 5000 steps each day as it seems to suit, though often it's been round and...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    Thank you again lovely ladies! A poor night's sleep and finally awake before 5 and up not long after but felt fine once I started moving about! It's so strange. Trying to be 'mindful' today - something I tend to scoff at as being trendy and a bit hippy dippy- but I do need to keep my wild...

    [THR] Nerve pain in foot after hip replacement

    Not much comfort @Damper but I've had issues with both feet since first op July 2018.No pain but often discomfort in foot on first(left) side. They tend to get very hot and pink fairly randomly but also I can't let them get cold as the left foot goes a bit blue round the big toe. I often sleep...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    Hiya @Apricot you're back ! Thank you for recommending Ali to me - she's brilliant! And such a lovely person. Do you think heat rather than ice? I know you're right @Layla - you always are! I must be patient. I just wish I could see consistent improvement even if it is very gradual rather than...

    [THR] Bickypeg's new hip

    I may have spoken too soon @Izabel. Do hope it doesn't put you off! Feeling increasingly uncomfortable as the day has gone on and just took 2 paracetamol and later 2 ibuprofen. Then the whole cycle of 'Why? Did I do too much? Will I ever be right? How fed up I am!' And then foolishly googled...
