Thanks for all the supportive information.... wonderful people ...fab site. I had a second appointment to see my GP (earlier was with registrar) . My GP says no op until all other avenues explored, so cortisone injections on Saturday .... don't like the sound of these (my GP is a bit brutal to be honest, and he's giving me the jabs. I think stiff upper lip will be required.) ... I hope it works, had a shocking night of very little sleep last night, v painful hips; by midnight ... dry/irritated coughing and getting breathless (not something I get a lot at night ..lucky I know) ...I think due to stress
Fingers crossed !!
Beth ..... love you all xx
