    THR Deeship45 recovery!

    Hi @Layla thank you for thinking of me! Things are going fairly well. So much slower than I anticipated, but I am moving much better. I am not using any walking aids in the house and only one crutch when I am doing a lot of walking. Driving the car and sitting in a proper chair still hurt...

    THR Deeship45 recovery!

    Hi @Layla :wave: Thank you for the anniversary wishes! Today was an emotional one. Which from what I understand happens to be part of recovery also. I am not generally an outwardly emotional person, unlike my mom and sisters but today that was definitely me! Still sore - keeps me from being...

    THR Deeship45 recovery!

    Well today has been a very painful day. I don’t know why, it just really hurt! Enough so that I was crying for a while . Took tramadol, elevated and iced. Still painful, hopefully tomorrow is a better day!

    THR Deeship45 recovery!

    Hello! Just an update at close to a month out of surgery. I am slowly recovering. Wish it was faster but understand that these things take time. I am still on two crutches most of the time because I still have a fair amount of pain when I put all my weight on the operated side, but trying to...

    THR Deeship45 recovery!

    Very sore today. I was walking slowly with the walker and our little kitten ran out of nowhere and jumped up my operated leg. I automatically reacted by yanking my leg back and it hurt terribly. I thought I was going to be sick! Luckily I wasn’t and made it back to my chair where I...

    THR Deeship45 recovery!

    I had Netflix on this afternoon and watched a couple of movies that I had seen before, because I assumed I would fall asleep and I did :sleep: My husband got me all set up in my recliner with water, tea, an applesauce in case I could eat, my meds with instructions and the timer on my phone so...

    Thank you for the kind words @Elf1 and @Debru4 . It is very encouraging and comforting to know others go through the same things! I have started to read some of the recovery guidelines again. Very good advice in them!

    Thank you @Layla ! I find myself dropping off into sleep constantly and haven’t had much of an appetite. Throat is a bit sore too, so swallowing is difficult. Banana went down easily though! Still having a lot pain with walking, but feel like it is slightly better.

    THR Deeship45 recovery!

    I made it to the other side! The surgery went well, my husband spoke with the surgeon afterwards. He said something about the middle of the femur being so small that he had to do a lot of reaming. Also I went in with a leg length discrepancy already due to limping on the hip for quite a few...

    Surgery coming soon!

    I got a new date - Sept 5th! Yes, the hip has been pretty bad lately @Mojo333 but that’s nothing new as everyone on here can understand. A little over two weeks and this pain will be all gone :)

    Surgery coming soon!

    @Mojo333 @Elf1 thanks for thinking of me . Sorry I haven’t been on here lately, I was so busy getting ready for surgery and then I got a call on Thursday morning that there had been an emergency and my surgery was cancelled. I was so disappointed! So I hope to hear soon with a new date, but I...

    Surgery coming soon!

    I do have some crutches at home so I’ll keep them handy for sure. I’ll keep you guys informed! @Jaycey thank you for the reminder! I will get the ice packs ready . I have been using heat a lot lately as I’ve been having increased pain and trouble sleeping at night.
