56 Weeks Post #HipReplacement

Archive, Arthritis, Health, Hips, Hypermobility, Hip replacement

I am struggling, mainly with stiff lower back and deep groin pain. But I’m wondering if it’s simply arthritis elsewhere or the actual hip? And I have to remember how much better I am than before the surgery too.

The weather at this time of year is never nice, and the dampness soon makes me feel at least 80yrs old. I’ve started to use the ibuprofen gel on my back too now.

Thankfully I’ve got the hands under as much control as I can, never again will I forget the splints at night. That was a painful reminder.

So I’m thinking it’s time to try and get myself out for walks again, even though I feel rigid. And welcome these things back into my life too.

Aerobic step as steps/stairs are still my nemesis. Ankle weights to help build the glutes, and I’m never far from a green resistant band.

Roll on 3 weeks when I see the surgeon!! And better yet Lana Del Rey and Theo Paphitis. How’s that for excitement!!
