Next Thursday I’m in hospital all day for a procedure called a Durolane injection under general anaesthetic. It’s a bit like WD40 for human joints and contains Hyaluronic acid which (apparently) naturally improves the function and eases the discomfort of a damaged or arthritic joint.
Although my hip has eased since last week I’m seeing the doctor Thursday to check it’s OK to go ahead as planned. I’m hoping this this injection will buy me some extra time (my hip was damaged in my accident and although I’m quite young, I’ve been told I’ll need a replacement soon).
I found myself saying the other day that ‘my body was just a casing that my brain lived in’. It’s an interesting theory that the two could be separate but in reality they are complexly interwoven. I am, however, trying to look at this next step objectively – as maintenance. Hand’s doing well so that’s one thing nearly fixed!
