I was shattered, in great pain and demoralised after A&E experience. Elder daughter L. asked a friend and she told me to ring 111.  I did, though with no great hopes, on Friday. The lovely lady on the phone told  me to go  to Brid. Urgent Care Centre & made a reservation for me.  So we went.

They cursed 111 (nicely)- as I was well out of their remit - but the nurse was so appalled about what had happened that hebeavered around and found the phone number for the secretary of the surgeon I was supposed to see in March.  I rang when we got home and was given a cancellation appt. for yesterday!

I couldn't believe it and went to see him determined to fight my corner - I crumbled.  He was wonderful, had got all my X-rays and medical details through from my GPs surgery and knew all about it! 

Long story short - it's complicated, not a simple repair or replacement, but he has plans A, B & C for when he gets in there.  So reassuring.

I was weighed, measured, blood-tested and most pre-op activities carried out because I am now on his 'urgent' list and could just get 48 hrs. notice.  

The pain is worsening and I sleep a lot (pills)but I feel so much better - the despair has  gone.  Fingers firmly crossed.πŸ˜€  Thanks for being there, everyone - you have helped. πŸ™‚

Thank you to all of you, in fact.  You hve no idea of how much you have helped me through all this.  OH is upset and  baffled by what's been going on so I couldn't upset him further by moaning on, he's being very supporting but he'll be 91 in  April so it's all a big strain.  You've all taken the brunt. xx

Thinking of you and hoping it happens very quickly for you. 

sheesh, Buenchico, I couldn't even do that with jourdain's leg

Glad to hear you're getting some proper service, jourdain


I wish you well Jourdain and hope everything goes as smoothly as it can. 

My friend's mum is nearer in age to your OH.  She has dementia and she fell and broke her hip at the beginning of the week.

I'm just off to contact her for an update, she is probably still inn hospital waiting for an op.


I couldn't offer any advice when you first posted...but my heart ached for you. This is wonderful news, and I wish you a speedy recovery.

Excellent news.  All the best to you.  

Lots of love to you, Jourdain.  All the best.  x
