Had Right THR on 11/20 and I'm shocked to say that I feel pretty darned good! Was discharged on 11/24, then bounced back to the ER on 11/26 with some kind of stomach virus that got me admitted for another 3 days. Before that 2nd admission I was sure that I should just be put out of my misery, but now I'm sure that was just the illness talking. I can walk fairly normally unaided around my house. I can play with the dog. I can get up and down the stairs with no pain and relative ease. I use the pain meds for "Overdunit" days when I practice the PT a bitt overzealously, but only because I'm going stir crazy being housebound. 24dozen batches of Christmas cookies later, I can finally says that I'm glad I did this. Just wanted to let anyone know that there really IS light at the end of the tunnel!
