Report from the IC


Apologies. I didn't intend to go AWOL for so long. I wish I could say I'd been trapped on the couch by my delightful pussycat (though she has tried), but it was more to do with a very chaotic couple of weeks at work. Lots of travelling, and evening work events that meant I got back late. Also lots of sitting - in cars and on trains, and in uncomfortable chairs - which wasn't helping with the sciatica treatment, compounded by the fact that my physiotherapist was away last week. I was beginning to feel like things would never improve and I'd be stuck with this stupid leg pain forever.

Anyway, I had another physio appointment yesterday, and some different poking and prodding, and now my right hip no longer goes 'clunk' when I rotate it (or at least it makes a more subdued 'clunk'), which has to be a good thing. Also, I might be imagining it, and I'm almost scared to write it in case it's not true, but I think the pain I was getting when going upstairs is lessening. He said to give it a couple of days for everything to settle down, and then if I feel ok I have permission to try a 10-15 minute gentle walk-run to see how that goes. I'm ridiculously excited about that. Fingers crossed...

I need to catch up on what you have all been doing - I have missed so much in the last couple of weeks, and missed you all so much. I bet everyone has either graduated, or is zooming off on a 10k run ;-) xxx

Thanks! Urgh... Tell me about it. Ended up working till gone midnight on Thursday, then not back from work till 9 on Friday - so hopes of fitting my run-walk in went out the window, as did my intentions of catching up with posts on here. At least I have a week off now, so hoping to do better!

Welcome back - we’re all waiting for you!

Hope you get better soon ❤️
