Tomorrow would have been a month back at work after 12months absence due to treatment .a simple grocery shopping has turned into a hip fracture didn't fall ,or hit anything just took a step wrong. Now going to need hospital stay for a week and a walking aid for at least 6weeks.

 Upside , no surgery , got to keep positive.

    Hi Silva.. Brave Heart.. keep gently going.. Let others carry you while 
    you rest up for healing. Move gently with the day.. Progress can be slow. Always going forward from a step back.. Do you have to do 
    any exercises? ..Time for a good book or funny movie! 
    All strength to you. xx

    Thank you , it has been a blow .
    4days in hospital so far and Onc getting a second opinion from orthopaedic surgeon.

    I know don't look too far forward but scary all the same.

    I'm with a walking frame at 50, it's harder to operate than it looks.

    I hate that I have to deal with this , 5 weeks after finding out hip was fractured, had scan and MRI , showing another cyst in the joint pelvis bone , already have a mets in the pelvis so another one to the collection.

    The Dr did a anaesthetic needle into the joint to see if the pain I am still having was nerve related , it's not, I'm still in pain , going to see surgeon again on Tuesday to discuss treatment options ,in the meantime , off work again until I can walk further than the corner without a crutch.

    Not  a happy creature at the moment ........

    Bloody hell @Silba, that's very frustrating. Take it easy and try to keep yourself occupied until it all gets sorted out. K xox
