6 mths post-op

Oh my goodness, 6 mths since I had resurfacing surgery! I went to Birmingham last tuesday for a check up with Mr. O'Hara, my implant has not moved one iota and there's nothing on x-ray to cause any concern whatsoever - very happy days!

I've officially been free of osteoarthritis pain for 6mths and that has changed my life beyond words. Osteoarthritis steals people's won't kill you, but it'll wreak your life and you as a person. I've been given my life back twice now and hopefully this will be the last time before the age of 50 that I'll have to resort to surgical intervention to beat the bugger! No way this is stopping me doing what I want to do.... I might walk a little funky right now, but walk I can..... and I'm not sitting down or staying in anymore!!

The last month hasn't been the greatest psychologically on the recovery front, but I've come to the realisation that there's nothing I can do but keep moving forward with everything. It's done now and I'm pain-free, something that millions are not. I'm in this for the long-haul, so I'd better get comfortable...
