  1. Thanks Stallard - it just goes to show how we are all different - did my pre-op on Tuesday and who knows when for the dislocation - sorry op? - you are right Men winge too much. Funnily enough after Id been screen just to get in the hospital - the two nurses who saw me both had coughs
  2. Good luck - mind you if you had replacement hips you could have fun setting off the alarms I know what you mean I can't stand still for even short times - because it just sets of the pains due to the imbalance. I'm useless getting through customs at the best of time hence the reason why I haven't bothered flying for ages you points this out It looks like my flying days are over and I'll give it a miss and let my family go instead.
  3. No but looking at the hips and ball joint it's just bone on bone with bits of bone floating around - The left has completely gone and the right has all but gone - it has started to progress up the spine not far from where I get back spasms - I'm very careful not to aggravate that old gardening injury as it cripples me - sound like an old moaning man which I am Regards to your wife - I hope the treatment is working or at least giving some relief.
  4. Wise words, I think I forgot to say it's my hips and the x-rays confirm that they are both knackered with little floaty grey bits that are bone. I've stopped wearing socks because I can't reach my feet anymore and I get pain in my legs/shins/muscles (calf, thigh etc), knees when I drive, can't get my leg over the cross bar to ride my bike etc so for starters I'd be happy just to get some flexibility back. Sound like a lot of people suffer as well on this forum so thanks for the advice.
  5. If I took Locks advice I'd be long gone - dead and buried many years ago - however 15 years or even 10 years out of my new hips will be just right for me - I will be ready for the cremation by then anyway - no way am I going to last much longer than that - I've certainly got my full value out of my body and often pushed it to the limit and beyond. I just want to squeeze a bit more out of it without the pain of knackered hips.😰🤧😜
  6. I never can understand why people post as an alias - surely if you have a view you state it, with evidence and stand up for it? Having said that I bet we'd be surprised just how many people we know who do hide behind an alias on here.Will they also be outed as time goes by?A lot of damage has been done to local people, especially female councillors by uncaring people.These trolls just wouldn't say what they write to people's faces - would they - no they'd rather hide behind their PC keyboard. I remember saying so much in my MSc thesis in 2011 about the time that Billywires arrived
  7. Yep one year on and still around - almost twelve months after the Practice Nurse said I had the issue with my hips - I have an appointment to get my hips replaced - in the words of the consultant both of your hips are knackered. I gave up taking paracetamol and especially ibuprofen because the latter stopped me breathing twice. Apparently as an asthmatic I shouldn't have been taking them because there can be an allergic reaction - it was the pharmacist who asked if I'd read the leaflet - I hadn't. Another thing is I find it hard to walk slowly, stand for periods etc but I can jog. Once I start
  8. Hi The practice nurse rang me at home last night and told me that the x-rays taken showed that I had osteoarthritis and did I want the operation now. I didn't even know what it is until I googled it. It does explain the pains that float around my legs and muscles, shins etc the recent groin strain with my 28 day streak of running, the fact that for the last 3 years I haven't been able to get down to my feet to tie my shoes laces or cut my toes. The refusal of the sports physio to give me a sports massage . I even went to a Yoga teacher and did a session he has just told me that I can
  9. As Chair of Warrington Nature Conservation Forum I can say that our members have concerns about the activities may have impact of the river species. The Mersey Gateway Environmental Trust have been monitoring salmon at Woolston Weir for a couple of years and will be able to see if they will be an impact on those fish.
  10. You've got more info than me - Lynton writes "Hi Geoff, yes we are already installing, in fact we are currently on site of the Plastic Omnium building on Omega" 😱
  11. Well I've just turned 65 in October so it's also of a personal interest 😂 - I still haven't applied for my cold payment or bus/train pass (I handed back my car when I retired from work back in 2007) at least I get my meds for free - even if they might soon get held up on a channel ferry! More focused now on getting back to running before times run out for me and I'm six feet under 😱
  12. Your quite right and after the roof tops success that was the next step and some of the new warehouses alongside the M62 at Omega were going to be approached. It would be on their roof tops so they would have to partner with the owners and check out if the rooves could support the weight etc. Shortly afterwards the committee was wound up so I'm not sure how far Linton Green got with looking into the proposal. I've just sent him and copied in the leader a question to that effect?
  13. The trial on the roof tops of houses in Warrington with Golden Gates as it was proved that electricity was generate come rain or shine. Elecy went into the property with the extra being sold on the grid.
  14. What about access issues for maintenance - all together in a field will benefit from economies of scale and location.
