Well it’s been just over a week since the Mini OP and physically the recovery is going well, the Right hip is still niggly and aches like a toothache, I really hope it goes soon otherwise this does mean surgery wont work. And i have no idea what we can possibly do then, as a lifetime of this hip pain with no action plan scares me to death! Way more than facing a surgery and recovery period.
It went fantastically well, got to the Hospital by 7.30am Monday the 18th July My Mum’s Birthday and my friends Kim’s birthday. And by 12.30pm I had been down, given the injection of Marcaine into the joint, had my Arthogram, X-rays and Kenalog Steriod inside the joint and brought back to the ward. It was quick painless and I was treated fantastically by the staff. They were friendly and thorough and all you could ask for.
Well I’ve now had my Pre-op and all is well, seems to be there are taking the past dvt seriously (thank goodess) after the BBC news peace I found, shame it wasn’t screened or prevented as it should of been in the first place! Here is the link http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-14124441
The Holiday was totally amazeballs and just what the doctor ordered, In fact they should prescribe sunny holidays for those recovering!!! I feel like a new woman…… well not quite but it certainly lifted my spirits and cheered me up again. It was beautifully hot and warmed the old bones up, and we spent lots of lazy days on the beach or in the hotels garden. We pottered around the town a little a night for our late tea’s and to visit the beach near the hotel for the best sunset views on the whole island. It was sheer heaven, and physically,mentally and spiritually i needed it. For 9 days we could forget chores,bills,medicals,doctors and hospitals and be pampered and catered for.
