Hi there, I'm a 58 year old that has just had a TRight hip replacement. The surgery was almost 2weeks ago on November 25th. I'm getting around with the help of crutches considering my hemoglobin went down from 146 to 51 and my heart is thumping really loud in my head. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Does everyone begin their calcium and vitamin D right away as well? I'm beginning my physio therapy in two days and the staples are coming out the same day. Has anyone had an infection after the staples were removed? Thanks!
