my disability is not because of the hip fracture. I was disabled since 1994 for severe clinical depression. I became sedentary and just sat. I developed spinal stenosis and a cervical herneated disc before that. then the cervical disc seemed to heal with time but I got compression in the thoracic area. that led to stenosis and more weakness. you could call me very lazy because I am. I just don't feel like doing anything. mentally I can wriggle thru somehow, but physical pain is different for me to handle.
the surgeon sent me to PT but being lazy I did minimum of it. ilm expecting it to heal as my neck did. the surgeon said (in the latest x-ray....it is healing there is no necrosis ,just do more PT. being lazy and depressed, I never went. I am going to see him next week and get another session of PT arranged. I understand that I need to work this out with effort. but the weakness and pain while doing PT is so great, I shudder at the thought of it.
the surgeon is very stoic by nature and does not give me positive vibes. he says it sometimes never gets better. I am going to get this next session of PT and tell them to make it lengthy but easy, so I can endure the pain. resting all the time is the only time I am without pain. movement causes pain. it's just that I am giving time a chance, but I think I may need to step up a bit and face the music, or die of pain, if not.
comparing the state I was in when I fell, I was not able to take a single step without support. now since the last two to three months, I have started to feel some change and limp like an ape when I walk, but I still force myself in spite of the pain.
it is not extensive walking, but just in my apartment to do chores or go to the toilet.
I know I have a plate and screws in my leg,(upper thigh) but when I visit him next I will ask of the proper term and type of surgery and hardware, and let you know.
he has not done a hip replacement. it was called an ORIF.
thanks for being helpful.,
until later,
darius
