Sorry to hear...hoping you make a swift recovery. Let me know if help needed although am kind of the other side of town as far things go.
Gustav, thanks for the offer you never know what comes up.
My news is that I started to walk without crutches inside the house yesterday and I have been doing the physio exercises though I have to work off an app as 90% of the NHS physio therapists have been transferred to other duties because of Covid.
Going to drop you a PM Zebra re physio
Sorry to hear this. Hope the physio goes well.
I had a crash almost three years ago in Whitechapel, and as a result ended up with a dynamic hip screw, so a slightly different outcome for me. Extremely positive praise for the team at the Royal London. I wasn't weight bearing for 3 months, so there was lots of work to do to get back to health.
I was cycling before i was properly walking. Your revovery will be different I think. I enjoyed switching my cycling to a more chilled out ride mtb style while recovering.
I managed to break a neck of femur while turning up a hill out of the saddle (DERV on the road). Twenty-something years ago. They considered a hip replacement but decided to screw it instead. I was out in a week or so, on crutches for a few weeks, then sticks for a while, but not had a problem with it since apart from the odd twinge. I'd already broken both femurs on a motorcycle a few years earlier so maybe I'd notice the hip more if I wasn't distracted by that.
