have to have an operation that's gunna take almost a year to recover.
I have recently been diagnosed with hip dysplasia, it's at the point now of not being able to walk much or bend because of pain. It started to get really painful when I was pregnant n it's just got worse since.
Its putting alit of pressure on my partner as hes having to help me so much now. We have a 10 year old who has adhd, learning difficulties and autism too and now a 14 month old with digestion issues so hes not been able to sleep properly since birth because hes always in alot of pain trying to pass wind.
And now ontop of that, I'm waiting on an operation which from what I've read is going to put so much strain on my partner. As for 10 weeks i wont be able to walk and then I'll have to use aids to get around.
I just feel it's to much for one person. But if I dont have the operation I'm going to get arthritis and my hip will be too damaged to have the operation. So I'll always be like I am now.
I just dunno what to do! Has anyone had this or have any advice?
I dont have any living family to help either and my friend cant help as she has her handsful as it is! So it will be just on my partners shoulders n I dont think it's fair on him.
