More Botox and new walking frame update

I’m putting Fun Fact Friday on hold for another week so that I can update you all on yesterday’s hospital appointment. Honestly, I don’t think it could have come at a better time for me, with all the pain I’ve been having the last few weeks.

I met with my physio and my consultant, told them about the issues, and that my recurring, cause-unknown hip pain had returned again and is back to keeping me awake at night. I roll over constantly trying to get comfy but it takes hours. I feel really sorry for Rob because it makes it hard for him to get any sleep too.

They decided to prescribe  me some stronger painkillers for when I need them, and they’re going to arrange for me to have some acupuncture. I’ve never tried that before but I know people who’ve had it and say they’ve had great results. I’d love to know if you guys have had any and how you found it.

I had some Botox injections in both legs too; in both my hamstrings and in another muscle that I don’t have a clue how to spell. Sorry. My physio tried a new technique when she was injecting the muscle I can’t spell so she’s interested to see if that makes a difference.

Oh, and apparently I should finally have my new walking frame soon. Apparently it’s at the hospital, they’re just waiting for the right department to build it up now.
