Hi All
It's not until Friday......but I have an appointment with the Orthopaedic
Surgeon who did my first THR. I'm sure what he wants is to discuss the 2nd THR :o It had been booked for 4 months after the first one but was cancelled by him because he thought it might be referred pain from my back. Most of you will have heard this before :lol:
But the day is approaching fast and I still do not know what to do when the question comes up
Pathetic...I know
Love
Hileena

    I'm a good hand holder :D

    See what he says and advises, Hileena. You won't have to make a decision on the spot. Take Mr H with you as an extra pair of ears. Good luck!

    Hi Hileena
    Count me in! As someone who has 2 hips replaced and back problems too, I understand your concerns. I hope your surgeon is able to give you enough information so you can make an informed decision. But remember, you do not need to make a decision on the day, or if you do go on the list you can always reconsider if you don`t feel ready. If you ever need a chat pm me x
    Good luck x

    Hi Thistle, SW, NB and DD
    Thanks for the support.

    SW...I will have my extra pair of ears with me :lol:

    NB....You have had a lot of operations....I know you must be pretty expert at this now :wink:
    I know I don't have to make the decision on the day but I probably will one way or the other.......If I left it I don't think I would be any closer to working out an answer :roll:

    DD.....I'm sure Mr H will be happy to have you hold his hand :lol:

    Love

    Hi
    Thanks toots,

    Of course there's room Maria :lol:

    Joan......When the first hip was done 3 and a half {closer to 4 years ago } he said one was almost as bad as the other.....One was slightly worse so he did that first but had me booked in for 4 months later for the 2nd one :roll: They cancelled it :roll:

    Love

    Hi
    I think most of you know how undecided I am about a hip replacement and am seeing the ortho on Fri morning.

    I think I may have my answer :shock:

    Woke up on Tuesday morning with real pain {not my normal ache} in my left hip {the one to be replaced} it was like that all day. Today was the same except I've dosed myself with codeine.....I take paracetamol
    and Naproxin .....I've got the lowest dose of codene to use as and when needed....I use it rarely....maybe one at night and that's it.........Today I had one this morning, one in the afternoon, one before going out at night and I'll have one before going to bed.....not exactly and overdose but it has helped.
    I think if I feel like this tomorrow {Thurs} I know what my answer will be

    Love
    Hileena
