I’m now a mere few days away from seeing the surgeon. And my mind is making me an emotional mess.
I struggle to articulate what I want to say, I’m terrified of what things may mean when I voice the issues, what will an x-ray show? So it’s been a roller coaster of tears, and anxiety.
I’m over a year post hip replacement and I honestly wasn’t really expecting
- Still using a walking stick
- Stairs to be such a struggle
- Deep groin pain
- Thigh pain above the knee
- Fatigue in simple tasks
- Swelling from walking
- Golf ball sensation
That’s the post hip replacement leg, the other leg is
- Fatigue quickly
- Stairs still
- Stamina of physio exercises
- Range of movement
Maybe it’s a simple case of needing more time, and more physio. And that maybe fixing the other side will help too.
