Hi to all,
I am now 6 weeks post THR and because I have not been given a six- week follow-up appointment with my surgeon due to admin error..( !!)...and having to wait until September for " a quick 5 minute appointment squeezed in at the end of the day"...( !!).. I turn to you very experienced people for advice.
Firstly, when should I be ok to sleep on my operated side? I have tried to lay on it briefly and feel comfortable and as far I can tell my hip is gaining strength as expected.
Secondly, when are we able to drive once more? Do we have to wait for the go ahead from said surgeon? Do we need permission in writing? Again I feel ready and definitely in need of getting back into the driving seat. What do insurance companies require to ensure full cover?
