    No hip clinic

    Hi I'm not sure how this has happened as surely they need to do pre-op and things before your surgery. I attended a session with OT but it was mainly about precautions and the process.

    Morning, (it's nearly 5am here) I'm sleeping well and feeling great ....apart from being bored stiff. My boss is coming to see me when I've been off for 4 weeks so I'm going to ask him to bring a laptop and mobile phone with him to see if I can do some work from home. I'm planning on being back...

    Hi guys Well I had another amazing sleep last night so feel great today. I was a bit stiff at first as I probably wasn't moving around very much. I think I've cracked this side sleeping so that helps. I put 2 pillows between my legs and off I go...perfect. I'm going to do very little today...

    I've not been able to fall asleep. The last couple of nights I've been able to sleep on my (non operated) side but it's too sore tonight, maybe a contributing factor to this swelling so I'm not risking it. I think I'm going to get up for a cup of tea and a biscuit. I'll try again in a bit...its...
