    @Fiona444 Glad to hear that all is progressing so well for you in hip recovery land. Hopefully these other issues which have surfaced will soon be resolved. As my Grandma used to say, "All these things are sent to try us" ... :whistle:

    When I try to run after the dog I don't run...I sort of gallump! Well done you, you are a bionic hip poster girl. :flwrysmile:.

    Sorry about the eyes though. Ive always said that after 40, it's patch, patch patch. It's even more true as the years go by but much better than some alternatives. :)

    Ha ha re the gallumping :snork: I can relate to that from a few weeks ago. That is why I was so surprised it happened. Just felt normal. I went for my last physio session today. She seemed to think I had nothing to worry about re dislocation and just said get on with your life and no need to do exercises any more. So much conflicting information out there. Us poor patients dont know which way is up half the time.

    @Calgal my eyesight has always been rubbish from a baby. i was the kid in the thick, pink or blue NHS specs. Trauma even worse when I had to wear a patch. Think I am emotionally scarred re glasses! Just praying I can have the lens implants.

    Hi, @Fiona444 Sounds like you're hanging in there and not yet "borrowing trouble", as my mother used to say, in freaking out over your eyes. I hope that you'll be able to get the implants and vision will be restored, but one day at a time! My corneas are just naturally thin, I guess, they didn't give me any real explanation so I assume I was born that way. I am just glad I can see normally, although presbyopia means readers, of course. My fingers are crossed for you that you get good news about your eyes at the upcoming appointment. Fabulous news about your end of physio and how wonderfully you're doing. I had my second PT appointment today and have a list of exercises I need to start doing daily. Fortunately, I believe PT has been good for me and I know that faithful completion of PT exercises daily meant I was in reasonably good shape for both hips surgeries. It will be awhile before I can say I'm done with PT as I've got some work ahead of me. But for you, how great to be told no more exercises and get on with your life--hurray! Have a good Thursday.

    Thanks ladies, I am sure it will sort itself. Feeling much more positive today and rested from work and worry. Been out playing with the puppers. Today one of them went swimming and had lots of fun. Tried to upload a video but couldnt for some reason so a photo will have to do :doggie: IMG_4269.JPG

    @Layla you always astound me with the details you remember like the name of my dog and various things that have happened a while back. Incredible memory you have !

    @Elf1 he is such a cuddle monster so you would be welcome to come over and squish him :roseshwr:

    It has really helped reading all your experiences about polyps and eyes stuff. It is so easy to become isolated with worry I find and knowing that these things happen to all of us although not nice is comforting in a way. If that makes sense.
