My brother had emergency spleen surgery, and when he left the hospital he had a similar looking care package.  The Doc told him to the LAX when he got home.  And, do not leave.  You will think that it's not working, and a few minutes later will be wondering if you'll make to to the throne.   LOL

Stay put...

getting first of two new hips this AM. by th he time you read this I should be out of surgery. they start at 5:15am. they s as y as long as I can walk and pee I can leave by noon, walking out,!  they are going to lengthen me too. I was pretty calm before but now that the operation is only 1.5 hours away I'm getting s little excited.  

 

Was this at the request of the better half?       :lol:

 

Glad to hear the surgery went great! That's amazing you were able to walk out right after the surgery! Don't push yourself too hard, take some time to let yourself heal up!

Amazing! I had one done 8 years ago. was in the hospital for the next two days, and could barely walk for the following two. I  thought that was amazing stuff. NOW it's out patient surgery! Congrats on the new hardware. Just be careful and take it easy.

 Makes me wonder about my coworker who just came back to work (also a hip replacement) about a week ago and he was out for exactly 3 months and as I have already stated his insurance is making him work for one month right now and then in about three more weeks he has surgery for the other hip.  Of course everyone’s healing process is different. But WOW!  You are going out for dinner tonight! WOW!!! That is GREAT!

pain is very little with the pain pill concoction .  getting in and out of bed is the worst part. maybe a 5 out of 10 for the brief moment.  I walked from my bed to the kitchen  this am with no Walker or cane.  just to check it out.  I have PT nurse coming out today to help me with exercises and the dos and don'ts.  they have compression socks on me full blood clots.  I have noticed the little bulges in  my  calfs as I got older.  they said I should really be wearing these all the time as I work on my feet.   any input of you guys wearing them for work?  going to go searching on Ebay and buy me a dozen!

Haha.  they did lengthen me by about .25" they do that to stretch the ligaments etc so it's got a little more pressure keeping it all together.  I had an anterior compared to a posterior  cut.  it's harder for the doctors but has less restrictions after.  only two things is to  keep my toes pointing forward. rotating so my toes go out is forbidden  and I can't do a ballerina move and stretch my led backwards as it would try to open up the wound.

while sleeping pain is a zero.  if I tighten my leg muscles it feels like I have a Charlie horse  or big bruise on my thigh. that's it.

I'm pleased you're doing well.

Hips can be an issue, so listen to the PT person.

When I was prepping for my first knee, I was at the blood bank, and the guy next to me was doing a "Re-do" on his hip.

Seems he over did it and the hip jumped out of the socket.

Slow and steady gets the job done. :thumbup:

Glad to hear you’re doing well and hope you’ll be able to keep the pedal to the metal when you get back into the dunes.

Don’t worry, I just looked out the Moho window and the dunes are still here.
