This & that!

The results from my bone density showed that I don't have osteo poreosis so that's good news which probably means the back is due to OA :(

I'm still waiting for a date for my knee replacement which had been planned for Oct/Nov - I'm way over the 18 weeks as the main theatres at the hospital were closed for 5 weeks! I've written to see if they are going to do any "catch up" at the local private hospital but haven't heard back.

Last night I somehow managed to hurt my shoulder doing an every day action - I heard 3 very loud crunches & was unable to use the shoulder because of the pain. I had a very bad night so saw the GP this morning. She thinks I've wrenched something (could have told her that!) but has given me some Naproxen & Voltarol gel to use. It means I can't do very much, no knitting or wrapping presents or cooking!

I hope it improves soon!

Hope you all have a happy & pain free Christmas.

Hi Pauline, whilst happy you don't have osteoporosis, I'm so sorry that you are in so much pain. It's awful when you wrench something just doing normal things. I had a fall last Saturday. Landed on my knee which is bruised, then toppled onto my left hand and wrist which felt sprained for several days. So I can fully sympathise with you. I hope you manage to still get some joy from Christmas. Sending very gentle hugs. Kath xxx
