It's wonderful what happens in a week.

As you may know, I am on the list for a right full hip replacement. However, this hasn't stopped me walking the dog every day or doing my usual chores. However, two Saturdays ago I spent 6 hours in Belfast going round the shops. I felt myself beginning to limp and by the time I got home I was in real pain. To cut a long story short, I was taken by ambulance to the Royal Hospital where there was a query as to whether my hip was fractured or not. After many x-rays, no-one could make a decision whether it was a fracture or not so I had to wait for a scan. The scan showed a lot more deterioration in my hip but no acute fracture. I was in hospital for 4 days but I have recovered fully and walked the dog for the first time today. I am still awaiting the operation of course, but that could be a long time. No more 6 hour shopping trips for me. Mind you, I did get a nice coat so it wasn't entirely wasted. SO, when the Forum's off you never knows what's happening.

Hi Ann,

I am sorry for your hip problem, problem is, the deterioration doesn't get any better, please take care. I sincerely hope you get your surgery sooner than you say it wasn't all bad......a new coat.

Ann, Sounds exactly like what happened to Joy some time back and even though she was operated on and every thing is fine she insists on using a cane while walking as she blames a fall she had on creating the problem. I myself had my right hip done several years ago and have had no least up to now??. Mauri
