    Revision TKR TKR 3 revisions in 2 years

    :welome: to BoneSmart, albeit under rather unpleasant conditions. If I were you I would go to the ER to get checked out. You seem to have waited quite a while with no relief and I would want to at least get a medical opinion as to what might be going on. I myself have been through infection...

    Hip Infection* Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    Sweet Sarah Yes, I love my garden, especially since I am in a locale where it can be enjoyed virtually year round ... one reason we moved here 18 years ago. Regarding the new exercises, I can manage a few steps either side but stay close to the wrought iron footboard for balance if needed. I...

    THR VSlowLife's Recovery Thread

    V Isn't it strange how different we all are! I was reading through your progress (which is going very well) and noticed how everyone likes the grabber. Well, I couldn't manage it for love nor money! I found it clunky and often dropped it or what I was grabbing. In the end I found ingenious...

    THR VSlowLife's Recovery Thread

    :wave:V ... a lot of us suffered with knee pain and this is probably caused by the positions they oik you into to perform the hip op! I didn't find ice helped the knee much and my Surgeon said not to keep ice on the knee for more than 15-20 minutes although okay for long periods by/on the...

    Hip Infection* Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    :shocked: Eek no, I meant 12C so about 52F ... I try to convert to be helpful ... :kickedout:t I don't mind X-rays. When I originally broke my hip in 2014 the gurney was rolled under with me fully dressed in winter gear. When I had all the fractured bones and was in the SNS (free) hospital I...

    Hip Infection* Izabel, Walking on Sunshine

    ... not that I am looking forward to it. I have a consultation with my gorgeous OS on 23 March when I will have X-rays and bloods. I am positive all will be well but I want to talk to him about me not being able to walk unaided. I was having difficulties before my falls so maybe there is...

    Fractured Neck of Femur/Pinning Not what I planned for 2020... broken hip and hip pinning surgery

    :welome: and sorry to read about your misfortune on holiday. I fell in a grocery store in December 2014 and cleanly sheared the neck of my femur ... VERY painful indeed! I was taken to hospital by ambulance and put in traction for five days before a THR was performed. I recovered well but...

    to the forum Aura Gypsy. I am sorry you are joining under the circumstances you are but I can empathise and there are so many good folk here as support. I did not know of your infection but on investigation it seems very aggressive and it is good to know you have a knowledgeable team looking...

    That made me laugh! In fact went on to YouTube to watch The Dentist Song. Yes, you are correct. Very similar. He is a chatterbox and could imagine him singing. He wears a friendship bracelet too. :thud: Just had another walk but still can't cope without Phoenix! Must get to the root of...
