Hi
I had my bone scan nearly 2 weeks ago to see if my THR prosthesis is loose. I was told by the scan people it would be reported on the next working day, but the secretary told me it would be a lot longer. Impatient as ever ( :oops: ) I rang her again today and was told ther results are back ( but she wasn`t allowed to give over phone) and she would print them off for my records and arrange a clinic appointment to discuss the results.
So I am on post am on watch again!!
I`m quite nervous of the results. My thigh, hip and groin pain haven`t improved , but I am keeping up with the physio.
Hope everyone is doing ok xx
NB

    Hi Toni
    Thanks for your reply, and glad you are not too bad at the moment.
    I would be grateful for any extra eyes to do `Post watch` :lol:
    I am keen to know what the bone scan found and if it does mean a revision or something surgical to remedy it, at least I`ll know what I`m dealing with (although i`ll not like it!) Its the not knowing that drives me mad (well, madder!)
    Take care x

    I used to be a radiographer and completely understand your frustrations (part of the reason i changed career).
    Scans often take a mimimum of 2 weeks to be reported and even then consultants like to look for themselves and draw their own conclusions!

    Very frustrating!

    I hope things are going ok ... seems lots of 'pretend joints' are testing us!!

    Thanks Tony
    ,I am keeping an eye out for the posty, he will think he has a stalker!
    Thanks Tracy
    I hope you get your results soon too. Let me know how you get on

    and Miss_l
    I hope you get to see your consultant soon so you can discuss your problem with your `pretend joint`. They are certaintly giving us the run around, just a pity I am not up to chasing it!!

    Really hope you do get that post soon and at least know the outcome. Must be more frustration for you knowing that the results are back.

    Hi NB

    Count me in for pocket duties on the 3rd... will bring peppermint creams and fudge with me in case we have a long wait.

    Hope the results are helpful and provide all the info necessary for the ortho to decide on what needs/ doesn't need to be done.

    Your bound to be nervous NB.... but lots of us will be with you helping you to remain calm..

    (((hugs)))

    Hi, I hope everything goes well for you and I'll be thinking of you! I was just going to say that Feb is a long time to wait, then I looked at the date. :shock: Not too long now, although if you're like me any time is too long!
    Take care, lots of love Sue xxxx

    Hi NB

    Good to see you got the letter and don't have too long to wait now. Hope it does go well for you on the 3rd and isn't as scary as you imagine. Don't forget the big pockets for us all, it could be quite crowded.
    take care

    Hi Miss_l
    Norway? I`m sooo jealous! April seems a way away to wait. Its typical that the appointment came so near your trip. I would see if you could get a cancellation or something.
    Hi Barbara,
    Egg sandwiches?? I will put a peg in my pocket then for my nose!! :lol:

    I'm soooo excited!
    Were cruising around the arctic circle and then down the coast of norway :) Hoping to catch a sneaky peak of the Northern lights! Can hardly sleep for excitment and still have a month to go!

    I've tried to chage it but they say targets mean new pt's get seen first and as im a follow up i dont get priority!
    Hmmmph.
    Think your pocket will be the nearest i get to an apt!
