Image: Laying on the floor in agony, wishing I could play with my little ‘Rosebud’. Bone on bone with muscle spasms causing intense nerve pain all down my left side. This went on for 5 weeks. I could barely walk. Nerve pain is a horrible beast. Off the back of 3 years of your stock standard osteoarthritic pain, i’d had enough. 

When facing immense physical pain, reading about the journey of others that have  lived through similar experiences is extremely empowering. On the 20th of September 2018, my 3 year relationship with a badly arthritic hip took a turn for the worse. I’m going to take you through my journey in some detail and hope this empowers you make smart decisions Throughout yours. xx.
