I went for my final x-ray this week, 6 months since I had my hip op. They were well pleased with me. Said if they could do a before and after advert I should be the after! I feel good now. I can walk about 3-4 miles and back to playing badminton, (gently) but I enjoy it. I can't believe how it has changed my life from 12 months ago when I struggled to walk just down the road with a stick.
I say a massive thank you to my consultant and the Sandringham Hospital!

    That's fantastic and you've obviously worked hard to get where you are. Long may it continue and enjoy those walks.

    Thank you to all. I took part in a sponsored walk in Sandringham in aid of Benjamin Foundation. It was supposed to be 3 miles. We did a little bit more as we seemed to miss the route at one point. I thought we might have bumped into "Phil and Betty" and been invited in for afternoon tea but they must have been out!

    Well done you! You've put in the boring 'miles' of physio and are now able to do the more interesting sort. I'm very pleased for you.
