Returning After 2 years


Hi Folks,

Well I was doing really well until November 17 when unfortunately I had a serious fall. The result of which caused the titanium post in my left thigh to loosen. This problem became quite bad and I had severe pain restricting my walking and almost everything I could do. I ceased eating sensible food, commenced drinking beer, wine and vodka, yes, the dreaded pounds piled on and the 2 stones I had shed quickly returned. I am not tall only 5.8”.

I was referred back to RNOH Stanmore where I saw my previous consultant. He was not convinced that the post was sufficiently loose to go back into the leg. I wont bore you with the time in between however on 21 January I was fortunate to have it replaced with a bespoke prosthesis and titanium post. Returning home on 28 January pain free for the first time in over 20 months. Okay, I had a little soreness around the wound but that’s all. I am now able to get about on one stick and have commenced my physio light exercises as recommended. I can once more stand unaided. Better still painlessly.

Now on 29 January I weighed myself and came in at a whooping 16.4 stones. I decided to go back to my good habits of 2017 yesterday one week in I stood on the scales and was chuffed I had lost 7 lbs

So onwards and upwards. Seeing my doctor today to have the stitches removed and Friday back at RNOH Stanmore for my first post operation outpatient physio appointment.

Best regards
