to January 2020

It could be the same post 2 years on but a differemt journey that I've just been on...

Small steps.
.
When life is tough don't give up.
It's easy in January to make all those unrealistic  resolutions and set yourself up to fail.
.
So start your journey with small steps.
A step by step change of thinking.
.
It could be that you want to:
Change your life.
Become fitter, healthier.
It could be anything........
.
Start each day when you wake up to be grateful for 3 things in your life. That way the day will begin  on a positive note.
.
Remove any negativity and replace with positivity and the possibilities of what you can achieve with each of those small steps.
.
Be the master of your own destiny.

This is the new bionic me

This is the new bionic me.
.
A customised 3D printed titanium hip joint from Germany held firmly in place with the addition of 3 extra long screws.
Extra fingers of titanium replace the need for bone grafts to fill in the holes in surrounding bone caused by the of the leaking from my ill-advised of 7 years ago. 
.
I will be fully weight bearing in 6 weeks time -  but at the moment still only partial weight-bearing on crutches with all physio only in a hydro-pool as the water allows me to do so much - even single leg balance and squats on the operated hip leg. 

This is a year's recovery to be able to do sports safely whilst the bone heals around the implant but by the start of 2022 I will be able to do most non-impact exercise. 
.
It is positively awe inspiring what futuristic medical technology can now be done together with amazing pioneering hip surgery with Professor Alister Hart @exerciseforscience 
.
I am such a lucky girl that the holes in the corroded bone were discovered in time - and that I was advised to stop all exercise and even walks ( except for swimming and static bike) for the 3 months before the op in case the bone crumbled from the amount of holes that had been caused in the surrounding bone.
.
I had no idea that anything so significant was wrong and I had been continuing to horse ride , play tennis, and do all sporting activities even ice skate.
.
So ladies- if you know anyone who has had a metal on metal hip resurface op please advise them to get their bloods checked and a CT scan to make sure they are okay.

A must see. Would love to have bought one for my home - but run out of wall space.

Making the most of my last few weeks out and about - no crutches-  before my op.
