    Revision THR Hope for 2020, Revised THR

    Finally found your thread! So nice seeing your progress all at once - sounds as though the medics have finally sorted you out! Don't be too ambitious though! Please stay away from shopping expeditions for now! Can't you do online shopping or send husband out with a list? And cars are very bad...

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    Thank you @Layla you always say just the right thing. Have actually done more than 47000 steps this week without really noticing it. Being without a car for a few days obviously helped! And the weather has been dry. I'm OK walking down our hill and on the flat, it's just worrying about getting...

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    Hi @Fit4Family Can't find your thread to catch up? So many old friends on here have vanished which is a good thing I suppose as it means they feel better. I do hope you continue to progress. Mostly it's my new hip and sometimes knee which are the problem although I get a lot of creaking from the...

    Oh nooooo @Barbaraj ! You can't go! I love your posts! Only just scrolled back and saw what I hope wasn't really your final one!:bawl:

    So long since I've been on here I couldn't find my thread! Cold all gone now - seems to have gone through our area with a vengeance! Dentist, hospital, estate agent, and all family and friends. I'm sure the mild damp weather doesn't help - green December fills the churchyard... Quite perky today...

    THR Hopefully Hippy Recovery

    Oh that's cheered me up @SurreyGirl although I'm sorry you were ' punished for having a good time! Got my 12 month appointment for the consultant next month and thinking he'll expect me to waltz in telling him what a great job he's done and how great I feel! Well I do. Sometimes. But often...

    So pleased with your reports dear Sarah. You were the first thing I thought of waking on the 27th. Don't be frightened of painkillers though? It's very early days to be doing without the full complement. Can't your doctor recommend ones which don't interfere with your blood pressure...

    THR Here We Go Again!

    It's the 6th of December in our house! When my first 2 boys were little they used to be so upset when Christmas ended we started a regular special 12th Night meal with even a little present each. And it still continues! Though it will be an Indian takeaway this year and definitely no presents!

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    Hi guys! Happy New Year! Will be back soon but had a stinking cold over Christmas which developed into sinusitis and I'm still feeling a bit pathetic. Lots of fun in and amongst but feeling washed out and very unamusing. Also lost a crown munching on a piece of Christmas cake at EXACTLY the same...

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    Knees especially 'old' knee was horrible yesterday and kept me awake. A good massage by the physio in the afternoon made me feel so much better. She thinks it would not have deteriorated so quickly if it had been arthritis suddenly getting worse but from doing too much again all at once. Muscles...

    THR LuvDisney’s recovery journey

    Have you seen a physiotherapist @LuvDisney? Just noticed your thread when perusing @Fit4Family thread and noticed particularly as your ops were the same time as my first.

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    A short journey up to son's house of only 3 miles? Bucket seat, very old car, rural bumpy roads and the juddering which started a week ago. And husband's zooming and braking. And I felt it straight away. New car in the New Year? (new husband....:heehee:) I would be so happy if it's such an easy...

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    It's possible @Fit4Family. Got some fake Skechers which have felt great but perhaps it was a false economy though I've worn them for a while now. Perhaps I better leave them for a bit. I'm still happier with bare feet but it's freezing fog and the wind is whistling through the nooks and crannies...

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    Feel bad coming on to complain again! It's a fine line between sharing my problems which I find therapeutic, or 'showing off' because I'm doing so well! Had to postpone physio last week which was then only a catch up really but seeing her tomorrow which is a great relief. Having trouble with...

    THR Here We Go Again!

    Such a lovely Christmassy week for you @Barbaraj but do hope you have chance to catch up on your recovery. I found many months further on than you that too many changes in routine however lovely can play havoc with our bodies. Picking at snacks instead of proper food, low chairs, strange cars...

    Aw thank you! As you can probably work out ranting on this page is my therapy! (Though not so helpful when poor @Fit4Family is going through such a lot :unsure:)

    THR Bickypeg's new hip

    Still ups and downs though @Apricot and @Layla. A couple of grand days out and about - nearly 10000 steps Thursday in Bradford on the train, mall, comedian gig - then Gawthorpe Hall yesterday with OH and no 3 son for a Victorian Christmas. Felt great and happy and thinking how far I'd come in 1...
