I hate to be negative and down, as the surgery on a whole has been very very successful and i would do it again in a heartbeat, but the Right hip is not settling down as i had hoped and neither is the back pain. Least surgery is only a week away now and i’m ever hopeful that this could change how i walk and hold myself, at least the back pain could be cured. But i am resigning myself to the fact that the right side does need the femur cutting in two places and twisting back into alignment. This surgery has been so successful it seems such a shame to hamper further progress and recovery by leaving the right side to hinder me. Perhaps i need another 2 years out and time to fix this right side and hope that this could finally be the end? Well until the hip replacements start anyways.
I’ve had a wicked last few weeks, Been camping with the family which was freeing and very much needed. If only to prove to myself that i’m not old and fit for the skip! Lol The sleeping on the floor in the tent was fine, in fact caused no more problems or pain than my bed at home (which is a little disturbing to say the least!) We fed animals everyday and i walked miles and miles around Longleat and i survived. I used my walking stick admittedly for long journeys, but on the site itself i managed without it, which i’m pleased with.
- My next worry is that my friend has actually worked at the Royal Orthopaedic and she has said my treatment went against their own protocol, so she thinks i should complain in order to make sure it never happens again to anyone else.
- My Tribunal is still pending, and it’s making me stress and be nervous and some days quite ill, all this is ridiculous when you consider your actually telling the truth, They make me nervous as the Welfare Officer said they try their hardest to trip you up and twist your words (charming!!) Also no-one can represent you or help you speak, yet in a court of law you can, so why not here??
On top of all this, My daughter is due to move out in a few days, and it’s all so chaotic and emotional. Not sure how the day will go, except there will be lots and lots of tears for sure.
