Hi, I’m Liz. 46 active and love scuba diving and hiking. I am recently widowed and have had a lot on my plate recently. Walking has helped to keep me sane during lockdowns but in March my hip started getting really painful... I went to the msk clinic yesterday expecting to be given some physio...instead she said I’ll be getting a full hip replacement! I’m really shocked. It’s been really painful but never imagined it would be straight to full replacement! Apparently it’s severe OA and I’m awaiting to get orthopaedics consultation. I’m guessing with covid backlogs it’ll be a long wait. I wondered if there anyone out there in a similar situation as me? Anyway, nice to find a group where I can find things out about this.
