Thank you all for your good wishes.
Yesterday morning was a whirl of blood tests, an X-ray and physio. By midday I was sat in the chair with pillows and snoozed all day apart from eating and bathroom visits. I slept all night too.
The pain is ok now and it mainly hurts when I move and seems more severe than the first but I know it will get better. Stair assessment later, then home. Yay!
The Consultant visited a couple of times. He said that this one wasn’t as bad as the first but definitely needed doing. I asked him about driving and he said when I feel safe, I asked whether it would do damage if I drove too quickly and he said ‘no, I bashed it in really hard with the hammer’, he’s so funny
I also asked him about the click in my left one and he said it’s hard scar tissue rubbing against the implant and that it will soften out.
