Thanks @Elf1 . I've not heard of that brand. I know you've mentioned it before, but am so sorry that you have AVN in your feet, too!

Thanks @CricketHip! Yep AVN as a result of having an M16 rifle drop butt first across my right foot and toes! Then the wonderful people at the military hospital thought it would be a good idea to have me put a foam wedge in the heel of my boot, causing more pressure on the already probably broken foot. If I knew then what I know now I would have jumped up and down until I saw a doctor. And the report of this is nowhere in my medical file so that I can go to VA on it! I know, TMI and not hip related, sorry! :chuckmarch:

Helloooo @CricketHip! It's amazing how life has changed in just a couple of weeks....surgeries being postponed has to be high up on the anxiety list right now, and I'm sorry to hear about that for your husband (and you, of course, as his spouse)….

Hope you find relief for those feet of yours....since you're temporarily not working, has the pain diminished a little?

Me and hubby are lying low here in the Catskills. Went for a walk yesterday with a couple of large hills. I thought I would give it a go since my level walks have been wonderful. The new hip was great. Righty has some groin pain today. Grrrrr. Not sure why. I took an advil and will be patient.

My heart goes out to the bonesmarties whose replacement surgeries were postponed as "non-essential". This too shall pass and they will all be out of pain soon!!!

Be well xox

Hello @Bfam85 , so good to hear from you and glad you are tucked in at the Catskills.. sounds lovely.

My one foot got worse, actually! Luckily my neighborhood podiatrist was able to see me on Monday and snap an xray.. as my foot was noticeably swollen.

I have skinny , boney feet and it's difficult to keep my heels from slipping in shoes so I tie my laces super tight and it's created a calcification and bursitis on the top of my foot.
The Dr approved of my new shoes and showed me a way to tie the laces in a way to keep pressure off that boney area.
I also got a little bit of steroids in an injection to the area.
So, stay tuned and hopefully this issue eases up and I can continue to enjoy my longer walks.

The best news is that there is no arthritis that showed on the xray.. that was my biggest worry. Only the area on top where my laces have rubbed for many years..

So your right hip still complains once in a while? I wonder if that will be my right hip, too. I still feel a little tugging and soreness in the groin area, occasionally. But it's not a big concern.. hopefully yours isn't, either. I am most interested in how long it takes to recover? Please stay safe- we will overcome this..

Good to hear your doing well @CricketHip . I sometimes have some issues with my right foot due to my ankle replacement. As well as it has served me because it doesn't have as much range of motion as a normal ankle I some times have pain due to my foot taking more pressure than an original ankle would put on the foot. Typically in the ball of my foot since it gets more pressure due to the lack of flexibility.

So glad your issue is not arthritis @CricketHip Especially happy the cortisone is helping. Sounds very similar to mine. It’s the top of my feet mostly. Please keep us posted. Hoping your hubby is doing ok. So many waiting fir surgery. Hoping this passes us all soon and normal life continues. Take care! Sarah

Good afternoon @CricketHip! The soreness in my right hip (groin area) is gone already. That's the hip I over worked last time, and from time to time I do get occasional soreness. I think it's because I had a bad tendonitis in the beginning from overdoing exercise. A lesson for us all...I have had less and less problems with it year after year. I hope that encourages you that your groin can still heal a lot more in the future.

We went to another state park yesterday and went on a Bluebird trail, searching for bluebirds (early spring birds in our area). There were more hills than I expected, but today....I feel great!

Right hip will be one year old April 29th! This one gives me no trouble at all *yay!!!

How is your foot feeling today? So glad there's no arthritis in your feet. That's great news; so you can now play detective and find out just how to eliminate the pain going forward. Is there a sandal that you can wear that won't rub that particular spot on your foot? Perhaps a bit of a rest for them for now....??

Stay safe, my friend xox

@CricketHip there are elastic type laces you can get for your shoes, some shoe stores carry them. There are ones called Hickies that are rubber, come in all kinds of cool colors and they have directions on how you can lace your shoes for different tightness or if you want looser fit. Had a friend turn me on to them and use them in a lot of my sneakers. My friend that is the occupational therapist saw them and thought they'd be great for some of her patients.
 

Hip Hip Hooray!

Hi @CricketHip. I just popped in and saw your thread. Sorry to hear that you have bursitis in your feet. That was nice of the podiatrist to see you. I hope that your hips are doing well.

Sorry to hear about your husband. That must be stressful. I hope it all works out, and that he can have his surgery when things are calm and under control. I would not want to be in a hospital right now. Too risky...

All is well here, @CricketHip. Thanks for asking. When I see things now, it makes me really appreciate the circumstances surrounding my surgery in 2015. Thank God it's over. Time has flown...

My anniversary will be on August 18th. I had no idea I could feel this good. It just amazes me what they have achieved with this surgery. I feel completely pain free, and before the surgery, I felt 100.

How about you? I will have to go back and read the rest of this thread...

Love this statement! It's great, isn't it? I've yet to get over the thrill of relatively pain free hips. :roseshwr:
