I'm in trouble

It's a long story.
Did some grass cutting last week when I got here, after 2 days I started getting hip trouble, the artificial one. Been to the Chiropractor today, he sent me to the hip an knee surgeon at a nearby hospital, xray, replacement hip find. MRT booked for next Thursday at 😕 7.15am. Chiropractor again tomorrow and hopefully he will be able to put my back right which is where they think the pain is coming from.
It's not what you know, but who you know, not counting the travel time all this was done in 2 1/2 hours.
I am in a lot of pain when I try to walk.
Poor little Motley had to stop at the house without his Mummy for 5 hours all together, but he survived. Has to do it again tomorrow and next week if I'm not better.

Hope you get it sorted Jan, I know how frustrating it is to have to slow done.

My problem is not as scary as yours was Terry, now I know the hip joint hasnít moved and itís back and nerve that need sorting and I am in trustworthy hands. This chiropractor put my back into Working order 17 years ago and I am sure he will again.
He still remembers me after 17 years 😀 once seen and all that. Or maybe itís because we have seen him a few times in between. He was a polo player and kept hoses here for a few days when we were here 2 years ago and he also comes to bbq and parties when we have been here.

Oh Jan How awful for you. Are you able to drive? Back pain is terrible as it seems to affect every single thing we do. Glad you have faith in your chiropractor. I am not a fan of them myself. They seem to put you right only for it all to go wrong again. All my friends have found the same. Some of them keep persevering in spite of me saying "not again"!
I point out that the NHS uses Physiotherapists for a reason. They put you right and give you the exercises that prevent the problem re occurring. Perhaps that is what puts people off ? Or, is it different in Germany?

Very sorry for you, would feel wrong "Liking" your original post, but the speed with which you have been dealt with to identify the route ahead is brilliant.

Is there anyone locally that could give Motley daily exercise while you get sorted ?

Meanwhile, find a comfortable position, do what you need to do (that does NOT include grass cutting or tree surgeon work or even moving heavy sacks around...... in fact anything similar....) try to r e l a x because that will help reduce swelling and pressure.

Keep us posted, you can use your fingers as long as you are not trying to carry a full sized desk top computer around with you.....

Best wishes,

Dave

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

I have great sympathy for you having trouble with your hip again.



You seem to be getting good and swift care from the German health service.


I do agree with Patp's comments about Chiropractors, and Osteopaths, and prefer to rely on Physiotherapists, particularly as they connect with the doctors.


Anyway good luck for a speedy remedy.
