I beg to differ my soon to be hip happy pal.Oh well best not to have too many expectations.
Not to make fun of your situation, but that does sound rather pitiful. We all deserve a pity party now and then, just don't turn it into a gala event if you can help it.I've had 3 days off a steady diet of box sets and l'm currently trying to sum up the energy to clean my house and do my roots...the joys ...
It does feel all consuming at times. I felt like I experienced a little mourning period also in that I had to part ways with my natural God given hip to be replaced by a prosthetic one. Mine served me well for many years and I didn't want to lose it. Who really does, if it didn't become necessary. THR, menopause and becoming an empty nester is a lot of change. But you'll get through each, one by one, and be all the stronger afterward.It does feel like my whole life is dictated by this darn hip right now !
Hi there I'm sorry you're struggling with pain and feeling down. It may be a longshot but I know my colleague @Jaycey suffered back issues, she may have ideas for you on some easy exercises. I've tagged her for you, we'll see whether she can advise.Hi
Wondering if anyone can suggest any pre op exercises for back ache ? ( Not swimming though )
Core stability exercises are great for lower back issue. But unfortunately they are not "hip friendly". Most of what you are feeling is referred pain from that bad hip. Try and stay off it, use your cane/crutch. This will all ease once that bad hip is gone.Wondering if anyone can suggest any pre op exercises for back ache ?
