I'm in a very lovely waiting room reading the latest addition of Vogue magazine seeing what the latest is with Beyonce when my name is called and I'm led through for my appointment. Welcomed to the room, it dawns on me, I need to think about my lifestyle choices.
See, the last few weeks have been crazy for me. Usually I'm very consistent with my diet, my exercise and my general lifestyle but recently a few things have changed which have presented some barriers to living the life I am accustomed to.
It all started back in August, when following a long standing pelvis, hip and back pain issue, the GP referred me for some scans and an appointment with one of the surgeons at my local hospital.
So as I'm led through from the waiting room to see the surgeon, I was expecting the usual "nothing to see here speech".
You can imagine my surprise when the surgeon diagnosed me with arthritis of the hip and explained possible surgery is required.
