I had been experiencing increasing pain when walking long distance on and off for couple of years and now getting pain in the night...this year went to Dr , then Physio who referred me to a consultant..when he saw X Ray he said only one answer a total replacement due to severe osteoarthritis....he said it was now bone on bone ! I got an appointment for the op quite quickly...in September...I am also fortunate in that I
am having it done in a private very local hospital on NHS....it has all happened very quickly, I am having trouble coming to terms with it...I am 76 and concerned about the recovery...my DH is very good but after reading up lots about it and also that you are never quite as subtle afterwards...I am concerned whether I should go ahead with it....
I'm sick to death of it - anyone else?
What on earth do I do? - too close to Christmas
I don't understand this trend - AIBU?
