    Well holiday was ok and did lots of walking but my back has been really playing up and it appears might be because my insole for shorter leg has flattened. Cannot get it out of shoe either so been having to patch with a gel heel.
    Experimenting with heel lifts and have arranged an assessment with a chiropractor.
    Body not liking work either as get widespread pain and to top it all feeling down.
    Five and a half months now and whilst I can walk again seem to have a new set of painful problems to contend with. :oyvey:
    Wishing you all a very Happy Easter
    :flwrysmile:

    :hi: @Cathippy
    I'm sorry that you are dealing with the aggravation of the lifts and inserts...trying to figure out what might help. I sure hope your chiropractor appointment brings some relief .
    How is left hip feeling? I know you said OS mentioned doing some evening up when you had other hip surgery...
    Wish I had some sage advice ...but I do sympathize that you feel discouraged and hope you manage to have a nice Easter.:console2:

    Thanks @Mojo333
    My other hip though worn on thexray is asymptomatic so wont be having it done anytime soon.
    In the meanwhile i am left with shoes I can no longer wear and a painful back particularly since I increased my walking.
    I am praying the chiro will be able to identify the problem clearly...so I know what to do.
    My new hip is aching today along with my shoulder. Grrrr :what:

    I do hope so too.:fingersx:
    I will say I was far from my pre-op OA pain that had gotten me to miserable at 5-6 months out from my hip replacement, but I was also far from healed. Especially after a lot of walking.
    If course I didn't have the LLD to contend with.
    Still possible to overdo so remember to chill some:ice:
    Hugs...

    Hello @Cathippy . I was sorry to read on another thread that you were feeling low. It is hard when recovery drags on. It is encouraging to read posts from people like @SurreyGirl who also had a slow recovery (I hope she won’t mind me saying that) but really seems to be coming good now. I chronicle my ups and downs in the hopes that some time in the future I can be the one cheering other hippies up, saying don’t worry, I was still suffering this and that at x months, but I’m flying high now. You too will be an inspiration. You said, I think, that you are going through the motions. Well done, that will pay off in time.

    Hugs to you.
