    THR Dobbie1070's Recovery Thread

    Thanks for putting words to how this surgery feels emotionally. Before the operation, I grieved the upcoming loss of this body part. That femur head had served me well for over 70 years.

    THR Dobbie1070's Recovery Thread

    Hello everyone and thank you for welcoming me to the other side. Last night when I got up for the bathroom, I could tell that I had turned some sort of corner. It was probably my best night sleeping (two 5-hour stretches). I had to back off one of the bed exercises which really caused some...

    I have a question. Ha! Don't we all? My question is, when I'm told "you won't be able to do such and such", are people referring to a) the rest of my life b) for about a year after my THR or c) for the first 8 weeks or so following the operation? Here's an example: Often, when I go out in our...

    THR New here. Just scheduled my surgery.

    Hi everyone. I've been reading your posts and other information for about two weeks. I've scheduled my Anterior hip replacement surgery for August 24. Frankly, I'm a bundle of nerves and have begun second-guessing almost every decision I make. I've gotten snappish with my darling hubby and am...
