Hi
Happy New Year everyone. Sorry i haven`t been around much recently as I have been laid low with flu. Yuk!
I am hoping for good things this week, as I start a new course of physio on Wednesday, and hope it helps my hips/back and bursitis.
I also have my 3 stage bone scan on Friday this week, to see if my THR prosthesis is loose. I am getting nervous about this one as if the results are positive, it will mean replacing my THR. It will probably take a couple of weeks for the results and I should then get an outpatients appointment to discuss the results etc..
Pocket duty please for anyone available!!
NB

    Of course we will pitch up - we've got a busy week this week, one way and another, there are quite a few off to appointments (if my memory serves me right). I hope it all goes well, NB, and of course you will let us know what the outcome is, yes? I hope the flu is clearing and that you are beginning to feel better in yourself. DD

    Hi NB, sorry you have been poorly. S has been poorly all through the hols and now as he is starting to feel better I'm in the throes of a heavy head cold - seems there are so many different bugs out there - no one can escape!!

    Hope your physio goes well on Wed and good luck for Fri and the results when you get them.

    Speedy
    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.

    Thanks everyone xx
    Speedy- Hope S is on the mend and that your cold doesn`t last long.
    Tony- yummy-jammy dodgers!! My appointment starts at 10.00 on Friday for first 2 scans then back in afternoon for last one. I think I will need to take a book to keep me occupied! Or i could nip along to your appointment if it fits in. Hope it goes well and you feel better for it.

    Hi NB

    Hope the physio went ok for you yesterday? Sorry you were laid low with the flu recently. Just bumping this one up and reporting for pocket duty for you tomorrow. Really hope the scans bring good news and that you can avoid more surgery. I will be thinking of you. (Looks like a busy day for pocket dwelling with Iris and Tony too, and probably others out there?. Really hope you all have a positive day.)
    take care NB you are not forgotten.
    love
    Chris

    Hi Chris
    Thanks for your kind words and for thinking of me and my appointments.
    My physio went well , I think. I had a thorough assessment taking an hour, and at tthe end she gave me a couple of exercises to do. They are very gentle, as she is not wanting to do anything more until I have had the scan and results.
    So I will go tomorrow at 10 and see what happens when I get the results. I think that will be the hard thing, waiting to hear. i am not the most patient!!
    I hope everyone elses appointments go well (Iris and Tony)
    Thanks again xx

    Hi NB,

    Good luck for tomorrow and I hope your results come through quickly for you. It's going to be a long day for you.

    I hope you have recovered from the dreaded flu and are not feeling too shattered by it.

    Let us know when you go for your result appointment and we will all be on pocket duties for you.
