Hi there.

I'm Ian and I've been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in the last year. I need a hip replacement and I'm finally on the waiting list. It's 18 months!!

    Hi Ian, I have just made some exercise suggestions on your other post. Sorry to hear the waiting list for surgery is 18 months and hope you find a way of managing your symptoms and keeping a level of fitness in place. I am enormously lucky to have been able to get my operation done privately. I hope things improve and the wait doesn’t turn out to be as long as quoted.

  • Thanks, I'm worried about my fitness level but I'm doing floor exercises, stretches and standing from chair exercises to try and maintain muscle tone. Just got some resistance bands but not quite sure how to use them yet 🤣
