Hi there ~ don't worry Mad Shez I will be taking the negligence thing further I have suffered an enormous amount of pain as have my family not to mention loss of earnings and opportunities.
This has totally occupied my life for the last 8 months and things seem to be getting worse. I now have teririble pain in my mid thigh and am worried my fenur may have split. I can't really move at all.
The nightmare just gets worse, but I don't know who to go to for my legal advice as it is more difficult in Scotland and less people seem to deal with it ~ if anyone knows of anyone who does medical megligence cases in Scotland please let me know?
I just want to get back to work and normal just now and would be happy with that for a while before I start on the training again and am prepared to start with cycling as I know I probably shouldn't run till I can cycle.
Squeakz ~ the old bird that you met is truely insprational but I know it will take a while before I can be like that. I do have a tendancy to be a bit gung ho but don't want to jepordise my future mobility which feels as if it is hanging in the balance just now.
That's good to know it is really painful to even walk a bit just now but it is only 3 weeks since op. I suppose what I have to think of as well is how quick it will need replaced again. The average age for the op is about 70 I think, but I am good bit younger as mine was due to injury then negligence so I may end up needing a few, but the top hip man gave me the Nike hip as I have been calling it ~ it is a ceramic one that they use for younger more active people, not sure why they don't use it in older people.
But good to know you can do it afterwards and to think that I may be able to take part in stuff again. What event did you meet the fantastic old lass at? That's a great attitude to have to getting new hip I doubt if many people look at it that way ~ you are right inspirational.
I have recently suffered a bad injury during aerobics which I do for cross training purposes, actually I say recently but it was 8 months ago. I had a stress fracture at first and kept going to A&E to ask for crutches. the day after I eventually got them I was in horrendous pain and was admitted to hospital. They assumed it was to ongoing disc issues but in fact I had a fractured hip which went unnoticed fro 7 months while I had to walk on crutches and my right leg was getting shorter and shorter as it displaced by 3 inches.
Eventually when going for MRI scan found that I had broken hip but too late to save hip so had total hip replacement.
Does anyone know if I will be able to return to running after my recovery from the operation ~ if I do recover as there may me some loss of feeling and power remaining?
Thinking of doing the Caledonian Challenge in midle of June has anyone done it and would my running training ( up to 11 miles now and do run up hills though not very rough or fast) help with preparation for it. Any ideas or similar experiences?
