Broken hip.

Can I ask if anyone has broken a hip as that is what I have just managed to do. It wasn't a mountain bike fall but simply wet steps.
Lucky for me a freind broke hers some time ago so she could advise us on what to buy to make life a little less painful, so if anyone has experienced this bloody painful event I would like to know how you managed and how long it took to get back to something like normal.
TIA.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

Jeez GG sorry to hear that, hope it’s on the mend soon, I know it can be so bad that it can need pinned and plates inserted. I suspect the bike will gather dust for a good while.

Some Spanish wine or brandy will help ease the pain :- )

Oh golly no G. Luckily not experienced your problem. Hope it is not too debilitating. I guess even hopping about on one leg must be very uncomfortable.
Us oldies must be always so very careful.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

I broke mine many years ago on a garage forecourt where that been a diesel spillage which the manager had mopped with plain water....... it took the ambulance staff nigh on an hour to extricate me, with zTrumpton’s help as it was impossible to stand......

Sad to hear you have done it, has it been replaced with metal or pinned and plated (mine was the latter), one of the most useful commodities was a handle to grab things using a trigger and claw - it made picking up newspaper etc a task that I could do without help.

It WILL get better, but it is a long process sadly - or it was for me. A friend had his replaced and CYCLED home - keen and crazily fit cyclist although “it did take me a bit longer”.

Good luck, I hope it progresses well.

Yep, plate and screws needed and your right the bike will definitely gather dust, unfortunately.

I will need to avoid strong magnets as well.

Oh Gitty, no biking down to the pub for a while then, you´ll be saving a bit of money there .

Goes without saying I´m sorry to hear what's happened, I was going to ask on another thread what you were doing in hospital, now we know.
I don´t know how Daves pal manage to bike home from hospital after a hip replacement, took me 6 weeks before I could walk any great distance comfortably, Hans was a lot sooner than that, I think it does depend on the experience of the surgeon, he had the chief, I had one of the Indians.
Have you got a card to show if you go on a plane to tell them you are partially bionic?
