Kate, at least it will be good to know whats going to happen with the other hip, even if its not something you want to do just yet. And definitely try to find a new job before you go for it!
Also, dont forget that your pelvis has just been rotated, so you are probably standing differently to how you were before, and there may be a small leg length difference as one is corrected and one isnt, hence why the pain has got a lot worse now your up and standing lots. Take a break from the ibu, to see if that helps. I find rolling my shoulders backwards lots can help, and try a heat pad at work, or perhaps ibu GEL massaged into the area instead of tablets?
sounds like the hip is coming along nicely!
Good luck tomorrow Kate!
LOL I second Rayray! xxx
I am hoping he will be super impressed with me!
Now if I could just sort out my back/stomach I would be impressed with myself too,lol.
Hoping to be discharged from UCLH tomorrow .
Best of luck sweetie, and give us all the goss when your back xx Bet he will be super impressed xx
Thank you Debbie xx
Sorry Kate - I'm a bit late to say 'good luck', as we went on a last minute break to Bath. But:
Thanks Janet, hope you enjoyed Bath.
Everything went really well today. I saw Mr Witts registrar, the clinic was really busy and my appointment was 13.35 ,we got into see him at 15.15 and the train back was booked for 4pm so although he went to see Mr Witt to ask if he wanted to see me too, by then I had all my questions answered and wanted to get to the train so Mr W said it was ok to go.
My bones have healed really well and are looking very strong. In fact they are so good that he has lifted all restrictions and is allowing me to do whatever I want as long as it doesn't hurt.I am allowed to do the weights in the gym,and impact stuff, and when I jokingly asked if that meant I could jog to the train station-he went to ask Witt who looked at the xrays and said Yes!!!!
I have some inflammation where the tendon was cut(which I already had a good idea anyway) and he said that might improve as the bone heals more but if not I will need a steroid injection next time. My ROM was really good and pain free so he thinks I am going to do great, and the discomfort I am still feeling is to be expected. We have agreed to watch the other hip over the next 6 months.
The only downside was the amount of Arthritis in the hip was greater than I thought, so I will defo need a THR at some point , but he is hoping to get 10yrs out of the PAO which I will be more than happy with.
I go back to see him in 6 months unless there are any problems in the meantime.
I guess I am on the homeward stretch now
Fantastic news Kate - really happy for you and impact exercise too, thats great. Sorry to hear that Arthritis is worse than you thought though - don't go to crazy on the impact exercises. Fingers crossed your other hip behaves too.
Take care xx
Well that certainly sounds like a successful appointment! Well done! I am so glad that the surgery has been worth it and that you are all healing up beautifully. So are you planning on continuing to increase your activity levels as you get stronger and stronger since you have no activity restrictions? How is it going with you working and such? Hopefully you'll be feeling stronger and stronger every week. I like the 'wait-and-see-you-in-six-months' approach because it gives the hip enough time to settle down from overcompensating. Hopefully your other hip behaves itself.
stressed is desserts spelled backwards...coincidence? I think not.
