hi, I've eventually had my operation on my hip. not a hip replacement. I had a large amount of hard calcification removed along with my bursa. 19 clips in total so quite a large wound. the consultant said it is quite rare in the hip. I have had 3 operations on my shoulder for calcification also. doing quite well only one week since operation. been non stop before and after operation. my dad had been in hospital and came home the day I went in. on the day I came out my mum was admitted to hospital. I live quite away from them, so had to sort social services etc out over the phone. my dad had to go into respite and my mum is 20 miles away from dad in rehabilitation. I live probably about 40 miles from their home. my husband and I don,t drive so I've been with son's couple times and for the rest in a taxi. visit dad then 20 more miles to visit mum. I get over as much as I can but feel very guilty not seeing them every day. fingers crossed we will all be back to some normality soon. oh yes my hubby had knee replacement 8 weeks ago. so many thanks to the nhs. xxx
