    THR Linette333 is in recovery<

    One year ago today! @Layla and @Mojo333 Thank you both for thinking of me. Ì have just read through this thread and I am amazed at the progress I have made. It is true that it takes a full year to really see the full results. My hip feels totally "normal " now and I rarely give it a thought -...

    Hip Arthroscopy Flare up

    I had a PRP Injection on the NHS here in the UK! I expect it depends on the individual surgeon and also location. On the day I had my injection, there were 6 of us! This injection is only recommended for certain conditions, I think, but I doubt that it would make anything worse.

    Hip Arthroscopy Flare up

    Hi @Natka ! Sorry to read about your pain flare-up. I just wanted to let you know that I am also in the UK and I had the injection on the NHS. I am aware that It is very expensive otherwise. It was my surgeon's suggestion. Good luck!

    THR 1st THR - 32 - Right hip

    Yes, bursitis was my only problem at the time, although there was some arthritis according to the x-ray. The pain relief was instant. The only downside was the fact that I had to be strictly non weight-bearing for 6 weeks. They were very insistent about this if the injection was to be as...

    THR 1st THR - 32 - Right hip

    Hi @BigDon ! I had a PRP injection nearly 2 years ago now and it has been a total success for me. I had been struggling with bursitis in my right hip for a couple of years and after a couple of cortisone injections which didn't work for any length of time, this was the last resort really. I...

    Hip pain prevents walking. Avn or bursitis?

    Hi @VSlowLife ! It sounds like you are doing really well. I know it's still early days for you, but it seems like good progress. I suffered from trochanteric bursitis in my right hip for almost 2 years in total. Not that it was diagnosed straight away - I was passed from one physio to...

    THR Tampa doctor needed

    Hi @CoastalGirl ! @CricketHip is right in saying that I had a prp injection for hip bursitis. I suffered from bursitis for about 2 years. I had countless rounds of physio, which didn't help, then a steroid injection which only lasted for 3 months. The consultant said that there was no point in...

    THR Linette333 is in recovery<

    Thanks for checking up on me @mojo - 6 months already, you're right! I wish I could write a totally positive 6 month update, but of course I can't. My hip continues to be wonderful and I am so glad I had the surgery. When I think back to how I was this time last year, I am so grateful. I...

    THR Linette333 is in recovery<

    My 5 month update. That in itself seems incredible - 5 whole months??!! The 4 - 5 month period was a real turning point for me. I had really reached the point where I wasn't giving much thought to my hip at all - just doing everything normally. So it was all great - until it wasn't...

    Such a great update, @Fiona444 ! I am so pleased to see you getting on with the "normal " things in life - and without pain! :yes!: This is what it's all about! Good luck with the eye treatment when it comes around!

    THR Linette333 is in recovery<

    Thanks for looking in on me @Layla and @CricketHip . Yes, I am sure all my "issues " are related to the back muscles. This new setback is on my operated side though and I am getting a few twinges from the hip too - first time I have felt a thing there in months! Anyway, I am busy icing and...

    Hi @Mojo333 ! Thanks as always for your good wishes. I will post a 5 month update on here in another week or so - I can hardly believe it has been that long! Meanwhile, we went away for the weekend and unfortunately I have managed to land myself in the ODIC ! An uncomfortable 5 hour car...

    THR Hiptopia!

    @Calgal I loved reading your five months report! Your account of your recovery is always so honest and gives such an accurate picture of the reality of this journey. No, it's certainly not the quick-fix some would have you believe, but the long-term results are miraculous, it's true. You are...

    THR Linette333 is in recovery<

    Hi @CricketHip Thanks for thinking of me! I'm afraid I can't really see much improvement with my piriformis issues. I am now thinking that maybe I should see some other health specialist, as this has been going on for so long now. It does seem to be coming from my back, so I suppose a spinal...
