Yesterday they took my crutches off me and now I have just the one walking stick .This afternoon we went for a steady walk in the park. Uphill is definitely hard work and hurts somewhat. The staples are supposed to come out on Saturday. My leg might not feel quite as tight then with a bit of luck.
    It's good to hear you are making good progress and yes it will feel better with the staples out, but as you know it will then pull in different places but you will soon be fixed and have spring and brighter weather to look forward to.

    What out for any icy patches in the next few weeks !

I would like to be able to do one by the time my staples come out next Sat. The target is set.
    Not a good idea to do proper (alternate leg) steps on stairs until you're past the 6 week barrier. It would mean bending your new hip beyond 90 degrees and that's a no no because you could easily dislocate it. After 6 weeks, you should have enough new bone, tissue and muscle around the joint to hold everything nicely in place. I kept going with the 'up with the good, down with the bad' thing for far longer than that because I didn't want to jinx things!
    Be a patient patient... it's only 6 weeks

    Very little pain from my knee unless I twist it, bugger knows why I get the pain in ankle, shin and thigh.
    Are you sure he put the leg back the right way round?

    Week 4 Update a bit of a knock back. My wound didn't heal fully and has been weeping constantly and I ended up with it infected. This didn't come as any real surprise as my immune system is pretty shite due to me having chronic lymphatic leukemia. The plus side is I now recognise very early when I have a infection starting and can do something about it in its very early stages and seek treatment. It's now healed on the surface and the infection cleared up. I saw the consultant yesterday and all is good. Looking forward to spring now so on with the exercises. Now quite happy walking about the house with no stick and can do stairs sometimes. When out I can now walk further than before the op.
    The hardest part is having to sleep on your back all the time I will be glad when that bits done with.

    Good to see that despite a setback, things are now improving.

    I sometimes consider myself very lucky to have only had relatively minor health issues so far. All the best.
