    Yay! That sounds positive I'm so pleased for you
    I had mine this morning. Not good news. Surgery failed which I suspected he's sending me for 3 sessions with a specialist physio to stabilize my pelvis and we go from there.

    Hopefully for your sake Louise that it's done sooner rather than later. I worked on an ortho ward for 12 months before I was qualified and it's a massive surgery to go through, let alone twice. I remember a handful of people who had both knees or hips done at the same time and 10+ years later I still can't work out if that's a good or bad way to go!

    He's not really sure. He spent a long time umming and aahing about what to do. He thinks the lack of pelvic stability is a factor (I have osteitis pubis from pregnancy as well as a back injury) so he wants to attempt work on that before doing anything further.

    Thanks. I'm seeing the surgeon again in 4 weeks and he said he will see how I'm recovering and hopefully book me in for the right one I'm about August . 4 weeks ago I was saying how I wanted both done at once... omg I do not know how ppl do both at once ! The pain must be incredible

    Hope you're feeling well. Not long now xx

    Hmm ok. I'm sorry that it didn't work out. Must be so frustrating for you. Can you get a 2nd opinion?

    Xx

    Default I am... #20

    I am so frustrated! My dad has come down to help us out whilst I recover from my knee replacement. I'm not allowed to cook or do the washing and can't walk with out my 4 wheely walker . So today he decides that he will cook dinner. Great - gives hubby a huge break- que me cooking dinner as dad said it's too much for him- then as I'm sitting in my chair icing my knee, I get the clean bedsheets thrown on my lap to fold.. um it's impossible to fold queen bed sheets sitting in a chair and I can't stand up to fold them . So they are rolled up in a ball and hubby can deal with them. I'm over today and I have got 10 more days of this
