Welcome back Joe.

With you now being back the number of unpacked boxes must be down to a manageable number by now

Ouch.

Its got to be said ..... we told you so.

We did say collectively get the removers in, moving is not a DIY job.

But you now know that, so consider yourself told off in the nicest way this Brit can.

I feel for you with the arthritis in your hip, we are Brothers in pain.

I have a shot at right hip and my finger joints are so arthritic they lock, playing keys is my own physical therapy way to keep my fingers mobile.

I am timing it so I get my hip replacement surgery in April next year and will be laid up not being able to drive or do much other than physical therapy for a couple of months.

We all feel your pain at this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere.

I have a touch of arthritis myself when it gets cold feeling it mostly in the thumbs and feet but also a bit in my right hip.

I'm nowhere near requiring any surgical replacements but I find regular doses of Glucosamine with Chondroitin helps ease the stickiness in my tired old joints.

My dr mentioned replacement of the hip joint. But, right now it just in the future. After PT completes if there is no improvement I head to an arthritis Dr and see what they say. Worst part about it I can walk with out much trouble but I walk with a limp. :)

Arthritis sucks.

Hope they get you sorted as best they can.

I find that the weather plays havoc with my joints, especially when there is a low pressure weather front nearby. Are you the same?

Presently I use a stick, otherwise its limp time. Its a simple action but its my right hip tht is the problem and my Orthopaedic Surgeon advised that I use a stick in my left hand and co-ordinate its use when weight is on my right leg, resultant effect no limp.

Looks like us old buggers are all suffering arthritis.
Mine is similar to Gary in the hips . . painful but no need for sticks (yet)
The knuckles are my worst enemy . . they really suffer. My fingers are now disformed.
Starting to feel it in the feet and shoulders now too.
Fish oil is s'posed to help. I take 1000 mg's (tablets) most days.

But I feel for you guys needing surgery. I wish you all the best.

regards
Ray
