Injection done! Thanks to all those that were very reassuring when I was being wimpy about the hip injection!

It was, as you said, nothing. And hurray, seemed to have a pretty quick effect. Since yesterday morning I have walked the dogs three times, further, faster and uphill! Now for the first time stopping every now and then because breathless as before I could only go for such little walks the breathlessness never kicked in.

Also picked 2Kg elderberries whilst I was out, now destalked and in the freezer ... elderberry wine and perhaps some syrup I think. I love doing those autumn 'preserves, pickles and chutneys', not done wine for years, but have been given demi johns by a friend so brewing time is here.

Hope you are all as well as poss, and getting out and about if you can. Weather is closing in fast here, wind up and about to chuck it down I think ... so now going to check out the TV.

All the best

Beth xx

Glad the injection was ok and it seems to have really worked. It's wonderful that you could walk the dogs 3 times, I was hoping to get one little walk but wasn't up to it. Could maybe have managed today but it's chucking it down here in Scotland and strong winds too. M

Hi Peeg

Thanks ... and yes, I'm not great at doing things in moderation ...tend to either do too much or do nothing at all. Silly I know.

Hello Beth,

Good for you, very pleased you are walking the dogs - close to my own heart. Tell me please, which injection? For what? I think I must have lost a loop somewhere. Keep it up, thanks. Diana

Hi Fradgie

It was cortisone and painkiller into hips for osteoarthritis and associated pain. I've been struggling for ages with painkillers not working and getting more and more 'limpy', now racing about ...(well not quite), but much more mobile and next to no pain.
