I totally understand. Both hips were giving out before surgery and it was hard to pick which one. And the fear of the old hip not hanging in when working with new hip, that’s got to be a common concern. Sounds like you are doing the best thing possible. Don’t worry about being on my thread, anyone who reads what you are going through will benefit or understand, so all good.I do have a chance to take stronger medication like Naproxen for OA (but we all know it does help.)
I still have leftovers of Hydromorphone which I also avoid as I am not sure if it would help when I bear the weight on my left hip. I am okay when sitting or lying, even walking with a walker... it's hurts when I try to stand on it to do the PT exercises for the other hip... and I am afraid it will collapse at some point... so I am babying and taking really easy.
It's to fun but I hope it will hold till Dec 3
I shouldn't post about me in your thread
Hope you are doing fine. Where in Canada are you?
