    THR Leahs Sloooww but steady recovery

    I think I've had like 2 days where I have had energy. I have a new theory that maybe my BP is to low. While watching tv tonight I took it after taking my BP meds for the night and it was 97/58.

    I am out of my tramadol and because timing with the dr I will not get my dose tonight. I have different doses, smaller, from the past I will have to make due with. I hate being dependent.

    Thank you Layla. Yes it has been 19 days since my last thigh pain. I am very happy. I am considering going to the gym to work on my weak muscles making me limp. Nothing.crazy, maybe the elliptical. They also have water massage chairs and that sounds glorious.

So Nov 2018 I had a LTHR and the hip had to be taken out in one peice as no chance of removing screws. I have...
