Where am I

I managed to slip over on 6-November-2015 and fracture the femoral head of my right hip. This blog is just to keep friends and relatives up-to-date with my recovery. It also will show where the NHS is good and where there is opportunity to improve. If you click the images tab (above) there are a few images of the break before and after the repair.

Update 10-June-2016 - sadly the femoral head has avascular necrosis and a total hip replacement will be carried out on 15-June-2016

I am home in Stoke Bruerne

No 4 of an occasional update

I went to see my GP last night (5-May) to ask for some anti inflammatory drugs as the hip was being troublesome.  I had been trying Ibuprofen bought from the likes of Lloyds and Boots but had not found them particularly helpful.  I also had used Diclofenic in the past and found that really good.  I asked for Diclofenic and kindly my GP had prescribed them and on a repeat type prescription. I do like doctors who listen and then act.

I have taken two Diclofenic pills so far and the change they have made is amazing.  I just hope I don't need to take them for too long.
