It's so much cheaper to hire tree trimmers my friend. I'm seven years younger than you are and I climbed ladders for a living for most of my life as a municipal fireman, but after my retirement at 65, I said never again (except of course for light step ladder work around the place) would I climb an extension ladder. At this age, one broken hip alone could be a "grave" mistake! Happy you weren't hurt any worse than what you were and hopefully, you'll recover from that pain soon - however, if you haven't been checked by a professional yet, I'd recommend doing that just in case, the sooner the better!
