Bump in the day and Knees!!

Hi all

Woke this morning to a thump, bump and ahh! Then groan and moan - jumped outta da bed and found hubby at bottom of stairs - he fell again. Fright over and all is well but he is sceduled to go in to hospital morrow to have his knee done.

Please say a prayer or whatever you do in your thoughts for him as he is petrified of doctors and hospitals make him weak. Hopefully he will have the strength to go ahead with this and all will be well. He is such a beautiful person and spends his time caring about others and thus when the spotlight so to speak is on him, he is not great at coping.

Thanks - Gizzo

p.s. & no, he didnt throw himself down the stair to get out of it, bad and all as he is with doctors!!! Ha ha! OOoooh wish it was me and not him - I cope loads better when it all boils down.

Is he having a knee replacement Gizmo? Hope all goes well for him and that he realises his fears are nothing.

Re: Bump in the day and Knees!!

Cant believe, the response back so quick! As far as he has been told it will be a clean up but won't know till consultant goes in. Keeping it very low profile as Mr Gizmo worries so much. The other knee is also very bad so we will have to see. We are just keeping stum and if he wants to talk we listen.

At the moment, we watchin 'place in the sun'. I have promised once all is sorted we off to lovely Turkey once again but have to wait.

Let u know how all goes and thanks again for the wonderful support that TLF and members always give. Hugs to you all.

Re: Bump in the day and Knees!!

gizmo, a couple of years ago my knee suddenly gave on me. the pain was tremendous and as it was without warning it was quite scary.
anyway, after x-rays, scans and physio, they (hospital) decided to operate to find out the cause. i was unable to walk properly and couldn't bend or straighten my knee.
i came around from surgery to be told that ' cartilege on right knee torn at the top, cartilege on left knee torn at the bottom, ligament twisted and cannot be straightened, knee cap almost completely worn away, and replacement recommended'

that was actually 3 years ago, i still have the same knee, no replacement, and apart from aches, pains, twinges that goes with age, i have had no serious problems ever since!!

i hope all goes well with Mr Gizmo, and tell him not to worry, it will soon be over and he'll wonder why he was so worried!

Re: Bump in the day and Knees!!

When I broke my leg I had to attend court in Turkey and was a bit apprehensive about travelling alone and on crutches. I have to say in both Gatwick and Dalaman airports I could not have had better treatment. A wheelchair was waiting for me at Dalaman and I was pushed ... by a very nice young man ..... through all queues, visa stamped and passport checked and helped right out to the coach. My cases were collected for me and everything went so smoothly in both the outbound and return journeys. So if Mr Gizmo worries about the actual journey tell him he will be okay and it somehow makes you sorry to get out better 'cos then you have to do it the normal way.

Re: Bump in the day and Knees!!

Thinking of you both and hope all goes well with Mr Gizmo tomorrow, we all do put a brave face on going to hosptal for whatever reason, there is always the apprehension and then when it is all over, we think, what was that all about then. He will be fine, I am sure.

I had a wash out done about two years before my knee replacement. It is a simple operation and he will feel relief from the pain immediately. Once he has had this operation the knee replacement (when it is needed) won't seem so daunting. My brother in law cancelled a replacement hip operation the day before he was due to have it three years ago because he was so scared. He has been in such pain with it over the last six months he has now decided to have it done, but is paying to go privately because he wants it done immediately. Cost 14,000! So tell your husband whatever they offer to do for him to accept it or you might end up paying later.
