GP this afternoon for Xray results. Not good news.
I am worn out.
She was about to say...it's age but fortunately thought better.
So.... severe wear on my sacroiliac joints plus hips too. Left worse than right. Losing my sight all those years ago has never caused any problems. Wrong. Posture has taken its toll
She offered me an appointment with the orthopedic consultant for replacement hip - certainly on the left side. Slight hiccup - we move in just 3 weeks. We discussed pain relief and for the moment I manage fairly well on cocodamol. So will stick with that but told me not to be in pain. I smiled! Too many years of living with David not to understand chronic pain.
We have already arranged for our last 3 years of medical notes to be printed out to take with us. Mine was very slim, David's a whole cupboard full.
She did say if it worsens before leaving not to hesitate to go back. I did remind her there is a 3 week waiting time. Tosh...make it an emergency.
Looks like I shall be enjoying a little therapy in the sunshine too!
