Wow what a turn around, shocking that they can u turn like this and think nothing of the impact it has on us. I have had no luck with my emails to O'Hara and in all honesty as brilliant as he is, i feel like he now thinks his job is done and he needs no further interaction with me, so i feel let down to say the least!
I really hope a scope does work for you, and this plan of action goes off without a hitch. Back to planning surgery and the recovery xx
Well this sounds like a real muddle (just like my messages!) but it could be really positive if a scope does the trick. I know you have had a scope before and I've had two so we both know the recovery is really easy in comparison to open surgeries. I have to say that although I know I still have arthritis in my left hip and I am still on heavy duty painkillers I am glad I went this way. If I just get two or three years out of the hip, I was in significant pain from the torn labrum and continual catching and that has gone. Is the scope going to happen in April?
Debbie, I'm sorry you didn't get anywhere, I think its really wrong that you have been left like that.
Rayray, the scope is scheduled for April. I'm still not sure about things, and wouldn't be the least bit surprised if I cancel before then, or more likely, go and see what he says on the day. Rightie is still incredibly sore too, around the hip flexor, so am in two minds whether to just ask for steroids in both hips instead,a nd maybe ask for a regular 3 month slot to do whatever they need , lol . I have 2 months anyway to see how both hips go, and I guess it'll be whichever is worse at the time . I think I'm just fed up with thinking/dealing with them at the moment-wish I could just be pain free and have everything behind me. Saying that, makes me feel guilty though because you are dealing with far worse and I'm sorry for moaning.
Ugh stupid bloody hips!!
I think at the moment we all feel the same about our hips! this last two weeks I have been left in pain that is so unbearable I do not know what to do with myself, and it is now stopping me going out doing alot of things!
Last Saturday we had friends around and I was begging them all to amputate the bloody leg things were that bad
Deborah-start making a nuisance of yourself!! and don't stop pestering until you have a date! xxx
Keep moaning all you like Kate that is what this forum is for AND it makes me feel better as it is me who seems to do most of the moaning around here! I hope that you find the right path soon.
Paignton I know it is exhausting for you will have to make a nuiscance of yourself. Ring daily and they will soon get sick of you and hopefully book it in.
Hugs to you both - miserable isn't it.
Will do Kate, sent a copy of his exact words to me back and waiting for a reply. Bet i don't get one though. Will start ringing as well x Thank heavens for you guys x
I will do Kate, i have emailed again stating his exact words to me. Hoping to get a reply but not that hopeful as i really get the impression he is done with me and i may have to go back through the referral system, which i will do if i have too x Hope you have better luck, and thank goodness i have you lot to keep me going and sane xx
Hi Girls, need some advice .....
Psoas has been causing major problems on rightie again, especially when driving-back to the stage of lifting my leg when getting in and out or when going from accelerator to brake and vice versa because of the pain. I am really only driving when I have to now because its got so bad, but today had to do an emergency stop (my fault-was stationary at a roundabout and expected car in front to move-but he didnt ) luckily reactions took over otherwise I would have hit him, but it made me scream it hurt so much and I drove home in tears. I'm really not safe to drive, but I need to. My problem is this... do I get in touch with Mr Witt and ask him to address this problem instead of the left in April-if its just another steroid then he could prob do both, but as the other only lasted 6 weeks max I wonder if he would want to do something more ? But I feel as if I am being a real pain at the moment , and constantly nagging him and his sec, but although the left is obvs painful, thats only when standing and walking, this one is all the time, and is causing more problems now . What would you girls do?? I am thinking if I do contact him, I will leave it until at least mid-March anyway, just in case this settles-tho I dont think it will.
Am in a mess now-cant drive safely, so need to walk more, which is making both hips worse!!
Kate follow the advice that you have been giving myself and Rayray! Nag, nag and nag until you get what you want, and more to the point you get somewhere. Do not give up. YOu are in so much pain and when we are in pain we do and say things that we would not normally do :-( You are not a pain. You are worried that things are going to get worse and you will do more damage. So please contact Mr Witt immediately
