Dear @Aura Gypsy,

My sincere condolences on the passing of your mum. It is incredible, given your circumstances, that you were able to spend time with her in her last days. I am fairly sure that this time together brought both of you comfort.

I want to say that I have read your posts and that you are one very resilient, brave woman. I admire your persistence and am so very sorry that you are going through this ordeal.

Question: if you feel up to it at some point, it might help members who think they might have an infection, to learn about what alerted your doctor to look for infection? If you do not wish to discuss this topic, please simply disregard my question, as I do not wish to impose.

You are in my prayers for a full and lasting recovery, and I pray that the pain you are currently experiencing will resolve soon.

My best.

Golden

Hello @Aura Gypsy
Sending a warm hug and condolences on the passing of your dear mom. I’m so sorry as it sounds unexpected. Thankfully you were able to make the trek to spend those last couple of months together. I’m sure it brought your mom great comfort and afforded you the opportunity to create new memories with her to cherish. Memories that will bring you some smiles and consolation in the weeks, months, years to come as you reflect on that special time you shared.

It‘s heartbreaking you were also suffering physical pain throughout your visit. Prayers all goes well with your appointment tomorrow and you gain a clearer picture in regard to next steps. Please let us know how it goes, we’re here for you and we care.

Thanks for the well wishes for Summer, sorry I got your season backwards. Good to hear your Winter is so far lovely and mild. :SUNsmile:

@Melina a couple of weeks after the THR in March 2017 I had a little side stumble going to the loo. When I got back into bed it felt as though my wound had opened on the inside and was bleeding inside. I had swelling and redness and was in excruciating pain. In hindsight it would have been better if I had gone to emergency and followed up with the surgeon. I just went to the physio thinking I had pulled muscles. After that 3 month set back I always had this niggling pain in one spot that I thought wasn’t normal. It sometimes felt like I had a low grade fever. I just felt like my general well being wasn’t at its peak and nothing I did helped it. It kinda just got put down to the aging process, menopause and I have a thyroid condition. Sometimes the pain would flare up and it was like I had bursitis in the hip. I would often have swollen glands under my arms. I did have blood tests that showed higher inflammation markers but the dots were never joined together. My new surgeon did a lot of testing and found the issue.
Dear @Aura Gypsy,

So sorry that I missed this part of one of your prior posts, where you already answered my question about how you became aware of your infection.

You are in my prayers and thoughts for your pain to resolve, for you to be freed of infection, and for a full recovery.

All the best,

Golden

I am very sorry for your loss. It is always difficult to lose someone and especially a mother but you being with her was a blessing for you both. I hope you can have your second surgery soon.
