Hope you are all feeling ok. I have returned from my long awaited hols in sunny Spain. It was a lovely break, relaxing in the sun. I did a bit of swimming too. The village was beautiful, but very hilly :roll:
For the last few days of holiday and still now my hips are bad as is my back. So I am back on the painkillers and amitriptiline. I feel very groggy today but did get a bit of sleep last night, eventually.
I am back at work on Tuesday, and unfortunately have agreed to go back to my proper hours of long days . I am worried that I will not manage, but don`t want to let people down, or be a moaner! :cry:
On the positive though, i had 2 letters waiting of rme on my return. 2 appointments with 2 consultants, one for each hip!! I now have a replacement consultant for the one who did my THR (he has moved Trusts) so can have my review of my THR. And I have a consultation with the surgeon who has said he will do the PAO on my other hip which has dysplasia . I wait all theis time for an appointment , and 2 come at once like buses!!
I will keep you posted xx

    Hi NB nice to have you back :D

    glad you had a good holiday... although paying for it a bit with pain. :(

    when are your two appointments? are they at the same hospital?

    hope you can rest up today and your pain meds & amatrip do the trick and dampen down arther.

    Hi Iris
    Both appointments are at same hospital but on different days. I need to check with work whether I can go to both. The rotas have been done for September and I`m not sure if they can cover my absence twice. I will find out on Tuesday.

    Hi NB
    Well things are moving.....
    I know I always suffer after holiday..we will be heading towards The Borders and Scotland....not too far as neither of us fancy sitting in traffic jams....not my idea of a bank holiday. We will do a lot of walking....mostly round shops and things...I know I will suffer but at least if I've enjoyed it it makes a difference....Its when you suffer after over doing the house work LOL LOL LOL that its not so nice :lol:
    Like I said at the beginning things are moving for you....keep us up to date
