New Year, New Hip!

6 Jan

Well it’s a new year (Happy New Year to those who follow this blog!) and I’ve just spoken to my surgeon, and he tells me he has booked me in for my other hip replacement surgery… On the 20th of January! In just two weeks time! Hooray! The first replacement has relieved me of so much pain and now feels strong enough to support me through this second recovery period so I’m excited. 🙂 The surgeon said that he will try to get the implant straight down my femur, but as it’s slightly curved, he may need to break and plate the bone to get a straight cavity to fit the new hip into… Which will mean a longer period of recovery, but I think it will be worth it! So, I’m now on my countdown to my second new hip- two weeks to go!
