Well the 2nd THR has been cancelled or delayed.
I had a call at 5.30p from the ortho who said he had got an e.mail from his secretary saying i would like to talk to him. He asked if I had got the message from her and what it was. Told him and he said well its a bit more than that ...you hve scoliosis and that is pressing on a few discs/nerves inyou spine and that is what is causing your backache.
Which is the sorest...your back or hips?
I said it was hard to tell....to which he said that was understandable.
He then said OK....which hip is the sorest...the unoperated one? I said no....one was as bad as the other....to which he said right its coming from your back...your hip op can wait if you want to be referred to see a back specialist.
So thats it for the moment...he's cancelling it tomorrow and getting in touch with a back specialist. I have an appointment with him at a different hospital on Sat morning....he said you dont need to come now...I said i would like to keep the appt and he said OK....I think he is visualising me coming with my list of questions
I'm not committed to anything ecept seeing the back specialist when I do get an appointment....we'll see what he has to say and then think about it again.
So all advice about things to ease sore backs meantime will be gratefully received
