58 Weeks Post #HipReplacement

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

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.

Decisions decisions and more decisions

  1. I’m sorry things are not working out for you. Just remember to focus on what you know and don’t stress too much on what you don’t until you get results. I know I’m a hypocrite and don’t follow my own advice, however and it’s easier said than done. 🖤

      1. Take notes, I do. They’ve seen it all before and if anything it tells them you’re engaged in your condition. I’ve had the same rheumatologist for 20 years now so it means if I tell them something’s wrong or changed they believe as they know how clued up I am on my conditions.
