Eventually got suitable transport to have the X ray on Dec 3. TUrns out I had a fractured hip of at least 7 weeks duration.So much for the Gp etc saying it was psychological. Admitted . Partial hip replacement on the fifth. Was poorly for several days,chest infection and pneumonia. I had to have oxygen. Now on a inpatient rehab unit,making slow but steady progress.
I was allowed home on the 4th,despite still being Covid positive. Symptoms were very mild.. All clear re Covid last Saturday.
The next thing is seeing if I can manage to get down the stairs. Physio will check on that
On Friday I threw caution to the wind and had a go at walking unaided.(on hindsight not a wise thing to do.Several people said what if I'd fallen over). I managed about 30 steps.
I'm now on a blood thinner as it was discovered in hospital I had atrial fibrillation. A search a few days go showed that it's more among autistic peoplr.
