I feel like I’ve not shared anything positive for a while, soooooo today is the day!!
It’s not huge progress but I’m finally standing more straight, I had/have a huge anterior pelvic tilt, and these hip replacement physio exercises are actually correcting that. See the exercises here
So this week I’ve done these ones Monday, Wednesday, Friday. And on Tuesday and Thursday I’ve done weights with my arms see here
But with this said, I’ve not left the house except for physio appointment, so hip isn’t under any walking stress, as that seems to be it’s worst activity lately. I know it’s only 1 week since it last slipped, but it feels better being conservative with my activities and certainly pain level has reduced.
That however can not be said for my thumb joint. Blood tests are back, but being retested, as inflammation markers were detected in CRP and ESR but no Rheumatoid Factor. Leading GP to believe it may be Seronegative rheumatoid arthritis. But being rechecked just in case. Not sure what this means for the future, it’s pretty scary honestly. I always put my sore joints down to Osteoarthritis or Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Hopefully I’ll know more by next week.
Steroid injection is provisionally booked for end of May, so that’s not long now at least. Though the medical secretary scared me when she said, you have been spoken too because it’s under a local!! Why did I agree to this? I read my blog posts from 2016 and I’ve scared myself again. But I do remember recovering quicker because I did it this way. You can read them here
