  • I cycled into a curb 8 months ago, went down. Tried a few times to get up. Nope.

    My surgeon went for two screws, as well as a cable to keep things in place while the bone recovered, rather than a full hip replacement. There was a risk they'd need to be replaced if I felt any discomfort in the cold (This has all happened while living in Stockholm, where it's currently -10), but fortunately things seem to be ok.

    I felt pretty down for the first 2-3 months so my advice would be as kind to yourself mentally as you can possibly be. Please get in touch if you'd like any advice or support - I'd love to be of help if I can. It's tough when the main thing you do to feel ok is suddenly taken away from you.

    Don't rush things physically either, but like @Brave says, do everything the physio asks. Luckily in Sweden the after care is incredible and I had my last physio just 3 days ago having gone twice a week for the last 6 months. Hope you can sort something similar.

    Hang in there pal!
